Porter says he's too ill to travel to Canada
NASSAU, Bahamas — Arthur Porter, the former head of the CSIS watchdog agency who is wanted on fraud allegations, says he has late, stage-four cancer and is too ill to travel from the Bahamas to Canada.
Porter told The Associated Press during an interview in his home that if Canadian investigators want to question him they should fly to the Bahamas.
Porter says he is suffering from lung cancer that has spread to his liver.
Quebec's anti-corruption squad has issued an arrest warrant for the doctor.
Porter faces fraud-related charges stemming from the construction of a Montreal hospital that was one of Canada's biggest infrastructure projects.
In the Bahamas, Porter is the managing director of a cancer treatment centre.
