OPP investigating potential violations of the Municipal Elections Act with reference to Ward 5 Councillor Justin Di Ciano

A March 8, 2018 CBC article by Zach Dubinsky and John Lancaster is entitled: “City Coun. Justin Di Ciano under OPP investigation for ‘potential violations’ of election laws: Case marks 2nd ongoing probe by provincial police into matters at Toronto city hall.”

An excerpt from the article reads:

“The news comes after CBC Toronto reported last month on a secret audio recording of Di Ciano’s twin brother — who was his campaign manager in the 2014 race — offering to reimburse two donors in cash if they gave to the campaign. If cash did trade hands in exchange for a campaign donation, it could amount to a violation of the elections act, according to legal experts. Di Ciano’s brother denied he ever paid cash to the donors, and the donors denied any recollection of any such transaction.”

Commentary

I am impressed with the work of CBC investigative journalists  Zach Dubinsky and John Lancaster, with regard to this story and other ones.

Update
