Commission of Inquiry into the Sponsorship Program and Advertising Activities

Witness: Beryl Wajsman

The Commission continues to hear testimony from Beryl Wajsman (a former fundraiser for the Quebec wing of the Liberal Party of Canada). Associate Commission Counsel Guy Cournoyer conducts direct examination. Mr. Wajsman speaks at length about ongoing conflicts with Daniel Dezainde and his eventual firing by Mr. Dezainde. He denies an earlier claim that he was given cash payments by Jean Brault following a meeting in the fall of 2001 with Mr. Brault and Giuseppe (Joseph) Morselli at Frank’s restaurant in Montreal. There is a brief cross-examination by Doug Mitchell (Counsel for the Liberal Party of Canada) and Mr. Cournoyer conducts a short re-examination.
