Hearing into LaSalle VIPs March 16

February 18, 2016

Joseph Pugliese, the owner of democratique.ca, waited for information about which guests attended the 2012 Canada day, Fête St Jean and 100th anniversary festivities for a year and a half.

No one will tell me who our elected officials wined and dined with at tax-payer expense,” said Pugliese. “I want to know who they invited to these events. What’s the secret?”

Information about this event also appeared in yesterday’s Suburban.

Access Refused

Commissioner Diane Poitras from the Access to Information Commission heard Pugliese’s case on March 16 at 10:30 a.m. at 500 Blvd. René Levesque, room 18.200. Five members of the public showing up at the hearing, including me.

The case number was 1009904.

Poitras published her decision about the case on May 4, 2016. She ruled that she believed that the borough of LaSalle kept no lists and that none were available in the archives of the Corporation des Fetes de 100.
