It seems undeniable and still very unacceptable that the Mayor of Montreal was dirty.

Many do still think the Montreal mayor and his party were corrupt.. The city of Montreal Citizens have to ride on streets full of potholes cause there was, is no money to repair them, even cause millions and millions of dollars for decades too  was stolen by City hall contractors, city hall, and city hall employees.. and the SQ arrest just 17 people linked to construction industry for tax fraud, gangsterism?  Dream on.. yet loads of persons were involved in stealing the taxpayer’s money .  Much too little and much too late too. and how  many persons now did the Canadian federal government get for tax evasions now  too? and why nothttp://montreal.ctvnews.ca/sq-arrest-17-people-linked-to-construction-industry-for-tax-fraud-gangsterism-1.1016545#ixzz2AosnhL9Z

Quebec too has always wrongfuly been soft on what collared abuses, crimes. Tip of the icberg too.. So far former Montreal city engineers have admitted taking $1.2 MILLION in bribes.  For a decade Montreal Mayor Gerald Tremblay knew it all about the corruptions and did not much good about it… It was obvious also that he the Mayor wrongfully was in no hurry to stop any of it.. fire him. Mayor should resign as well as his whole clearly crooked party now.. and go to Jail. Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay turned a blind eye to illegal campaign financing taking place in his party, due solely to money? Montreal’s embattled mayor cancels events; says nobody’s listening to him anymore. While Montreal contractors and the too often bad politicians, civil and public servants allowed tax payer’s money abuses.  Montrealers next are paying for it all even more with a new mortgage on corruption and it’s scandalous city hall managers. At the Charbonneau Commission a second engineer testifies that kickbacks gifts and money kept adding up. Montreal mayor seems nuts to be deny city hall rot. Montreal’s mayor’s administration comes under heat from many calling for his resignation. Our apologies that all politicians Canada wide that their greed has muzzled the much needed scrutiny of even Quebec’s politicians. Dear news editors do remind us that the RCMP and the federal government too now did nothing about the Quebec’s city halls corruptions.Loto-Québec Pierre Bibeau named at corruption inquiry takes sick leave should be fired Canada Laval Mayor Gilles Vaillancourt also on sick leave amid a series of raids by investigators.  Mme Marois, can you also now investigate the typical corruptions within the STM.

Records obtained by CBC News appear to indicate the campaign of federal Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Peter Penashue deposited a single cheque from a company in his province, but wrote separate receipts to the board members for the donation http://cbc.sh/uBVxpxJ

So what the Federal Conservatives cook the books like the Lieberals. Just the tip of the iceberg, Much more review needed here, Follow the money … follow the contracts, follow the Conservative political appointments. Harper’s  paraded into office in 2006  to be far more honest, transparent and accountable than the Liberals, he lied.. Seems they are all corrupt to the core in Canada,  no honor amongst thieves’ or the Conservative Party with  realy  hard proof that the rules were clearly broken by the Federal Conservative, real  Consequences and accountability needed.  Next excuses, deflection, blame somebody else, conspiracy, unrelated distractions, and sweeping under the rug by Harper?

Meanwhile Greedy, much disliked Bell falsely continues to flog a dead horse trying to price gouge all of it’s customers and the rich Conservative supporter Jacobson admits to knowingly laundering money obtained from the illegal sale of controlled substances. Toronto corruptions is done more under the Table for decades, while Quebec Corruption is more in the open, transparent. Second Montreal engineer admits taking cash bribes and Corruptions exists not only in Quebec but in all provinces for decades. Now can you really trust anyone who gives or receives such large political donations.. of course not.. What Rich Alberta now really cannot afford to pay for the University of Calgary Calgary’s McMahon Stadium for improvements costs? Cyber bullying needs more attention, justice ministers say means It needs more real jail prosecutions still. New anti-corruption bill bill will force businesses that seek public contracts to have their integrity checked so the Opposition threatens to take down Marois’ government after inaugural address and replace it with what.. ongoing corruptions? New immigration rules will not ease Alberta labour crunch High cost of Alberta living makes all that impossible still.. Calgary and Edmontom still lead the country in divorces, drug usage too? They still do not have any factories in Alberta and no low cost electricity to run them too? Albertan seniors next do even move out of the province cause the rents are too high.. If you Live in Canada Hidden taxes and corruption are both going up too.. Even Rich Calgary still has loads of hidden taxes.. many people gouged for more too. Find the crooks in Alberta too now just follow the money trail.. Black, a top Alberta Tory fundraiser and the party’s former finance vice-president, also lived high on the hog.. What even Canada’s Senators still live high on the hog? what about real heavy penalties on Conseravtive  politicians who abuse taxpayer’s money still. Note that the liars and crooks will wrongfully blame anyone but themselves.. Too many of our governmental employees sit on everything, send them to the US for real justice No wrongdoing in BC ambulance death, Eastern Health says so but let us face it that is the false norm, deny any guilt. Teen accuses the Montreal police of their much too common racial profiling while an Ontario police officer pleads guilty to exporting steroids only after he was caught but what about the much to many other bad cops Canada wide now too? We are too often now reminded that even Conrad Black was convicted in the US, sadly not in Canada? Why? STM launches internal investigation after Montreal Woman was punched and told ‘Go back to your country’ A Montreal Visitor was Unable to buy a ticket to ride Montreal’s metro system because he didn’t speak French. Quebec’s shame! Leave the PQ politics at home and do your jobs which includes treating all STM clients with courtesy and respect. Printed newspaper Publishers are still going the way of the dinosaurs.. More Money cannot buy a lost good reputation even for the Loser Obama. Even Obama will lose his Re-election SINCE HE NOW ALSO HAS BEEN HATED NOW BY SO MANY

Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois guilty of contempt of court http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/gabriel-nadeau-dubois-guilty-of-contempt-of-court-1.1020657  Fire the judge.. crooked  cops, crooked mayors  and crooked politicans get off Scott free but not a student who wanted free education…

“Martin Dumont, a former Union Montréal fundraiser, testified that he never saw enormous amounts of cash at party headquarters – except for one day in 2004 when his boss, Mr. Trépanier, called him into his office for help. He needed a hand closing a safe (60 by 60 by 60 centimetres in volume) with hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash spilling out of it, Mr. Dumont said. The bills were no ordinary fives, 10s or 20s according to Mr. Dumont, who often collected such denominations at spaghetti dinners and membership drives. “It was full, but I was particularly struck by the colours of the bills. Red, brown, pink,” he said. “He took out a few stacks and put them in his jacket. … I was shaken. I was nervous, and I made a joke he should change safes. Two weeks later, he got a bigger safe.”

Mr. Dumont moved on to federal politics a short time later, where he went to work for the Conservative government as a policy adviser.

Mr. Dumont, also described a cosy relationship between the mayor and the construction magnates who, the inquiry has heard, colluded on Montreal construction contracts to inflate prices and pocket millions, while kicking back money to the mayor’s party and corrupt officials.  In advance of a referendum to undo part of Montreal’s amalgamation, 14 of those construction and civil engineering bosses donated $10,000 each for a private encounter with the mayor, who they addressed as “Gérald.” They praised the way “jobs were being split up” in the newly amalgamated city under Mr. Tremblay’s watch. Quebec’s strict fundraising laws didn’t apply to the referendum campaign, Mr. Dumont said.

In another revelation damaging to the mayor, Élio Pagliarulo, a former associate of construction boss Paolo Catania, said he assembled $300,000 in cash in 2006 from a loan-sharking business he ran with Mr. Catania to pay off Mr. Zampino, then the head of Mr. Tremblay’s executive committee.” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/quebec-corruption-probe-told-of-montreal-safes-stuffed-to-bursting-with-bills/article4719750/

.

“The PQ demanded Thursday that the Liberals apologize for their stalling tactics and set up their own internal inquiry to investigate allegations of dubious ties with construction firms and questionable fundraising tactics. “They could have taken the decision to create a commission of inquiry three years ago,” Ms. Marois said. “They didn’t do it. They are partly responsible for what is happening.” ” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/pq-demands-liberals-set-up-internal-probe/article4657662/

“Quebeckers often joke about the fact that Montreal has vastly more elected officials than most any city in North America, but the province’s corruption inquiry has heard that this army of councillors and mayors went most of a decade without once directly questioning the city’s corrupt engineering department. Retired city engineer Gilles Surprenant said on Tuesday that a system he helped build to skim hundreds of millions of dollars off construction contracts using fictitious justifications for spiralling costs was an “open secret” at city hall. “It was never questioned,” said Mr. Surprenant, who walked the inquiry through part of the 91 contracts he helped fix, bringing him more than $600,000 in bribes. While Mr. Surprenant said he took the occasional cash kickback from 1990 to 2000, he testified that a fully integrated system of bribery and collusion took hold in 2000 and persisted until 2008 “http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/montreal-corruption-machine-was-an-open-secret-inquiry-hears/article4631123/

“An engineer on the take who helped construct a well-oiled system of bribes and bid-rigging that operated in plain view in Montreal has revealed at least two factors that allowed it all to happen: Some superiors were taking part, and those who weren’t asked no questions. During his 33 years as a city engineer who designed hundreds of millions of dollars in sewer and water projects, Gilles Surprenant said he met with an auditor exactly once for a 10-minute conversation on a matter he could not recall” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/lack-of-scrutiny-led-to-corruption-in-quebecs-construction-industry-commission-hears/article4652112/

and why did the Police not know about anyof this when they have a police station across the city hall even?
