Inquiries on CPAC - The Oliphant Inquiry – May 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: Brian Mulroney

Lead Commission Counsel Richard Wolson resumes his cross-examination of Mr. Mulroney, a former prime minister of Canada. Mr. Mulroney describes Mr. Schreiber’s lobbying for the Bear Head Project, a proposed manufacturing plant for military vehicles to be built in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. He speaks about the roles of Fred Doucet and Elmer MacKay in securing Mr. Schreiber’s ongoing access to him and recalls concerns about the project’s viability raised by Paul Tellier (the Clerk of the Privy Council at the time) and others. The former prime minister is asked about a June 1993 meeting with Mr. Schreiber at Harrington Lake. He is then questioned in detail about an August 1993 meeting at Mirabel Airport and a December 1993 meeting at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal during which Mr. Schreiber made cash payments, allegedly in exchange for Mr. Mulroney’s international promotion of Thyssen military vehicles for use in peacekeeping missions.
