#ceic Claude Léger on the hot seat

Onetime city hall honcho Serge Pourreaux testified Thursday that city hall culture, dominated by Frank Zampino, sank a key report made in 2004 explaining why project costs were so much higher in Montreal than elsewhere. This is the “secret” report Michael Applebaum has mentioned and that Radio-Canada emphasizes was not so secret after all.

The city’s ex director general Claude Léger began his turn at the CEIC Thursday saying he was powerless to act in a city hall dominated by Frank Zampino. Léger continues his testimony on March 11, because the CEIC’s taking a break.
