Charbonneau hearings resume Monday
The Charbonneau commission hearings resume on Monday, after a seven-week break.
First up on the stand Monday morning will be Alexandra Pion, a one-time receptionist for Union Montreal who once complained about having to count some $850,000 when asked to do so by party bagman Bernard Trepanier.
Next up, will be the man Pion complained to, Martin Dumont, a former party organizer who first appeared before the commission back in October, telling of how Gerald Tremblay knew about dirty money flowing into his party, not long before Tremblay announced his resignation as mayor.
Dumont is being called back to explain some apparent contradictions in his testimony the first time around.
He's on the schedule, but his lawyer is expected to ask that his appearance be pushed back for medical reasons.
SQ officer Isabelle Toupin is also scheduled to be one of the first witnesses to appear following the break.
