Unlike the Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, Montreal's Mayor, Michael Applebaum, has been arrested, and is facing 14 criminal charges, of corruption. The charges also included, fraud, conspiracy, breach of public trust, and especially, corruption in municipal affairs. He is accused of taking bribes, in regard to some real estate deals, and also before he was a mayor. So why did the Quebec, anti-corruption unit, targets Applebaum, if he was not an elected official, at the time of those, alleged, offences? According to Robert Lafreniere, the Commissioner, of the anti-corruption unit, "We can no longer tolerate, these reprehensible acts, committed toward the management, of our public institutions", says the Commissioner, "No one is above the law and you can't hide from the law". Lafreniere, also went on to say, that, "...All actions, that compromises the integrity, of the state are unacceptable". Clearly, Quebec also has a different set of standards, than Ontario, when it comes to, politics.
How else can an elected city official, like Mayor Rob Ford, also get off on such charges, as conflict of interest, domestic abuse, and also being embroiled, in drug scandals and all while being a mayor?. And those are just a few, of the Toronto Mayor's indiscretions. The public has had to put up, with a Mayor, of such low standard, that they have also now, come to accept it, as normal behaviour, from a public official.
These Montreal politicians were also charged with corruption:
Saulie Zajdel, who was a former candidate, for the Federal Conservatives, and also worked, on ethnic outreach, has been charged with fraud, breach of public trust and corruption.
Jean Yves Bisson, a Director of Permits, charged with fraud, breach of public trust, payment of secret commissions and corruption.
Gilles Vaillancourt, a former Mayor, of Laval, Quebec
charged with fraud and gangsterism.
The Difference between Quebec and Ontario, over corruption charges and its politicians. One get results and the other do not. The Ontario government should also start, by taking the actions, of such politicians as Rob Ford, quite seriously, who has made a mockery of the public trust, and has also no desire to stop, being a nuisance.
I have always liked Quebec, better, than the rest of english speaking Canada. And I still think that if Quebec, also separates, from the rest of Canada, it will also be good, for that province. It should be an autonomous State, not just because of the language, but also its culture.
