The Commission continues to hear testimony from Alain Renaud, a former lobbyist for Groupaction Marketing. Under direct examination by Commission Counsel Bernard Roy, Mr. Renaud is questioned in detail about his work for the Liberal Party of Canada and about his use of expense claims to channel financial donations from Jean Brault to the party. He denies earlier claims by Mr. Brault that Antonio Mignacca threatened Mr. Brault with the cancellation of Groupaction’s contract with VIA Rail.
