MONTREAL – Quebec’s corruption inquiry is being delayed today because of questions about the credibility of a witness slated to testify.
The inquiry was expected to begin focusing on the scandal-plagued municipality of Laval this morning.
But inquiry counsel Sonia LeBel emerged after an hour-long delay this morning to announce that there were serious concerns about Gaetan Turbide, a former Laval city manager currently under suspension.
LeBel says the concerns were sparked by information received this morning by inquiry investigators.
LeBel says the inquiry will continue with another witness — Jean Roberge, another senior Laval bureaucrat.
The inquiry should resume at 2 p.m.
