This couldn't have come at a worse time for the Liberal Party in this country. With Dion's shaky leadership under fire, the party diving in the polls the ever never saga of Adscam gets fired up once more.
Police told the court they went last Wednesday to Lafleur's home, a Montreal apartment rented nearly two years ago.
But police say residents in the building report never seeing Lafleur since he moved in. A man claiming to be a lawyer went to the apartment about a month ago wanting to remove the articles inside, police said.
The lease on the apartment is up in a month and hasn't been renewed.
Police also told the judge Lafleur no longer has a car registered in his name and his driver's licence is no longer valid.
They say he has no other known residences in Canada so they are unable to send him a summons to appear in court to face the 35-count fraud indictment.
I would hope that this whole experience makes more than a few in the Liberal Party learn that arrogance, self-serving attitudes, centralization of power in the hands of a few, and moral relativism lead to... well moral relativism, not to mention corruption, lack of public trust, and oblivion.
But that's too much to hope I'm sure.
