Inquiries on CPAC - The Oliphant Inquiry – April 15, 2009 (Part 1 of 2)

Commission of Inquiry into Certain Allegations Respecting Business and Financial Dealings Between Karlheinz Schreiber and the Right Honourable Brian Mulroney

Witness: Karlheinz Schreiber

The Commission continues to hear testimony from Mr. Schreiber, the former chair of Bear Head Industries. Lead Commission Counsel Richard Wolson resumes examination, with questions focusing on a series of meetings in 1993 and 1994 between Mr. Schreiber and Mr. Mulroney. Mr. Schreiber is asked about money allegedly earmarked for Mr. Mulroney by Frank Moores following the signing of an “understanding in principle” with the federal government in September 1988. He speaks in detail about a meeting with Mr. Mulroney in December 1993 at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, during which he allegedly gave Mr. Mulroney $100,000 in cash to lobby for the Bear Head Project, a proposed manufacturing plant for military vehicles to be built in Montreal, Quebec. Mr. Schreiber also describes a similar transaction, arranged by Fred Doucet, at the Pierre Hotel in New York City in December 1994.
