6156...Canada Hits The Big Time


This time of course it is anti-corruption mayor Michael Applebaum of Montreal who has been charged with corruption.

Beeg story.  So big that Reuters is writing about it and Archie Bunker's fave paper The New York Daily News is among the rags running with the story.  They open with these bon mots:  "Montreal's new mayor, who pledged to stamp out corruption when he took office last November, was arrested and charged with fraud on Monday in another blow to the reputation of Canada's biggest cities."

Michael Applebaum speaks to reporters last year. His predecessor had resigned under pressure.

Welcome to the big time.
