London’s Mayor Joe Fontana has said he will not take a leave of absence in light of have 3 criminal charges against him by the Crown/RCMP. The charges are as follows.
Breach of Trust by Public Officer, contrary to section 122 CC
Fraud Under $5000 contrary to section 380 (1)(b) CC
Uttering Forged Documents contrary to section 368 CC
These are serious allegations for anyone but for someone in public life and at the helm of an organization with a budget of 1 billion dollars it does give pause whether the Mayor still has the public’s trust in guiding the organization.
