In Committee from the House of Commons - Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics


Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics (May 10, 2012)

Claude Benoit, president and CEO of the Old Port of Montreal, appeared before the committee to defend her controversial use of the Crown corporation’s funds. Benoit has been accused of using the port’s money to pay for a lavish lifestyle including a trip to the South Pacific, working-retreats at Mont Tremblant, and costly catered meals. She testified that all expenses were approved by the port’s board.

In the second part of the meeting, Gerry Weiner, chair of the port's board, also defended Benoit’s expenses as well as the corporation’s business ethics.
