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