Wow being a disgraced pol really pays off.
Take the case of Montreal's ex mayor Michael Applebaum. You may recall that Mr. Applebaum was interim mayor of Canada's coolest city for about a minute before the spoilsports that enforce the law charged him with 14 counts of having his hand in the cookie jar.
Megan Dolski of The Canadian Press tells all that he has just received a going away cheque totaling 267,923,90$. No wonder everyone is getting busted in La Belle; one canna afford not to.
