Applebaum under investigation: report
Montreal Mayor Michael Applebaum is reportedly being investigated by the Charbonneau Commission.
Le Devoir says the commission has opened in inquiry into Applebaum, related to some questionable real estate transactions in his capacity as mayor of the borough of Cote des Neiges-NDG.
Applebaum did announce this morning that he was meeting with the commission today — but didn't say why.
"I would like to inform you that, in all transparency, I will be meeting with the investigators of the Charbonneau Commission this afternoon," he said. "They contacted my office on Tuesday and asked to meet with me."
That announcement came as Applebaum told reporters he was creating a new police squad that has the power to investigate members of the city administration.
