Quebec's corruption probe hears last witness testimony

Beginning on Monday, the inquiry will hear from groups including Quebec's anti-corruption unit

MONTREAL – Quebec’s corruption inquiry has completed the portion of its public hearings that dealt with witness testimony.

A Hydro-Quebec forensic accountant was the last witness at the Charbonneau Commission today.

Beginning on Monday, the inquiry will hear from various groups such as Quebec’s anti-corruption unit and the province’s chief electoral officer.

Justice France Charbonneau has heard from more than 100 witnesses since the commission came into existence in 2011.

Then-premier Jean Charest created the inquiry, which has looked into criminal corruption in the construction industry and its ties to organized crime and political parties.
