Corruption-related preliminary hearing begins for ex-Montreal mayor Applebaum

I hope this piece of garbage goes to jail for a long time. Typical of the City of Montreal’s crooked politicians who rezone for their developer friends. This is one of the reasons we need to say NO TO DEVELOPMENT. Keep the criminals out of SADB, let them stay in Montreal and Laval.

Former interim Montreal mayor Michael Applebaum appeared in court on Monday as his preliminary hearing began on corruption-related charges.

A publication ban was ordered on the evidence being heard before Quebec court Judge Yvan Poulin as Applebaum listened intently and jotted down notes.

He was arrested and charged about two years ago with 14 counts including fraud, corruption, conspiracy and breach of trust involving two real-estate projects in the local district he represented from 2002 until 2012.
