Commission of Inquiry into the Sponsorship Program and Advertising Activities
Witness: Marc LeFrançois
In light of a series of high-profile interviews with the press by Commissioner John H. Gomery, David W. Scott (Counsel for Jean Chrétien) and Guy Pratte (Counsel for Jean Pelletier) make submissions alleging that the Commissioner has arrived prematurely at conclusions about evidence and testimony. The Commissioner responds. Associate Commission Counsel Guy Cournoyer proceeds with direct examination of Marc LeFrançois (the former chair and CEO of VIA Rail Canada).
