Inquiries on CPAC - The Oliphant Inquiry – June 10, 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

The Commission hears closing arguments for the factual phase of its inquiry. Richard Auger, counsel for Mr. Schreiber, makes a closing submission impeaching Mr. Mulroney’s credibility and pointing out the lack of corroboration for the former prime minister’s testimony. Robert Houston, counsel for Fred Doucet, presents closing arguments, speaking about Mr. Doucet’s lobbying work for Mr. Schreiber, his role in arranging meetings between Mr. Schreiber and Mr. Mulroney, and his later attempts to clarify the nature of the business relationship between Mr. Schreiber and Mr. Mulroney. He also raises questions about the source of funds used to pay lobbyists following the signing of an “understanding in principle” between the Canadian government and Bear Head Industries in September 1988.
