Patrick Brazeau, Mac Harb to be charged with fraud by RCMP for Senate expenses


Senate scandal: Brazeau, Harb to face fraud charges

OTTAWA — The Mounties are set to deliver an update on their Senate investigation this morning that is likely to announce charges against Mac Harb and Patrick Brazeau.

The RCMP says it will deliver a statement at 11 a.m. at its national division, headquarters and media reports say it will deal with the Harb and Brazeau cases.

Harb is a former Liberal senator who resigned last summer after police investigators alleged he should not have collected a housing allowance.

Brazeau, a former Conservative, was suspended from the Senate after similar allegations.

The RCMP is also investigating expenses claimed by former Conservatives Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallin, but they are not expected to be charged today.

Duffy and Wallin have also been suspended from the upper house.

Commentary by the Ottawa Mens Centre

The fact is the RCMP aka the Government can't wait for the RCMP to do their own press release and is attempting to make political mileage out it.. and that, raises the question of just how objective the RCMP investigation is and whether or not the charges are being laid at the direct or indirect direction of the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister has repeatedly told us they are frauds and now he wants a rubber stamp from the RCMP. Surely he could have just let the RCMP do their own press release and appear to objective?

What is amazing is the length of time that this "investigation" has taken and again, the Government's endless pre-emptive strikes with press releases that stink.

Politicians expenses are a very complicated business and it takes an expert with ethics and accounting and even then, even prime ministers get it wrong and who is going to tell the police to go after them.

While the Government wants it's political criminal prosecutions, they FAIL to prosecute the worst of the worst, those who commit Criminal Offences against Children and " Administration of Justice"

For offences against Children, the Ottawa Police have Failed to Charge Marguerite Isobel Lewis, the lawyer for the Children's aid Society of Ottawa who personally fabricated evidence to unnecessarily keep a child in their kiddy jail system. 

Then there is CAS worker Phillip Hiltz-Laforge, caught blatantly fabricating evidence and obstructing justice, and the Ottawa Police refused to act.

Then there is the worst of the worst of the worst, Ottawa Police Detective Peter Van Der Zander who fabricated evidence and obstructed justice to protect a child abuser and to get a child abuser off charges.

The Members of the Government reside in Ottawa , the nation's capital where real criminals are protected because of their political connections and we never ever hear a word from Peter MacKay the Attorney General of Canada regarding criminal charges against those whose duty it is to protect children and uphold the Rule of law.

What we have in Ottawa is a horribly corrupt police and Child Protection System that costs the Ontario and Federal Government Billions of dollars and that does not seem to raise an eyebrow in the Government.
