RCMP officers recently visited Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Bernier to discuss photos of him shaking hands with a globe-trotting Montreal businessman who was later arrested in a police sweep targeting Mohawk organized crime groups.What is that saying...oh yes, when it rains, it pours...
Montreal's La Presse has found that Bernier attended a Conservative party fundraising event in January that was also attended by Michael Chamas, 44, who is accused of a raft of weapons-related offences and is involved in a protracted fight with the Canadian Revenue Agency over unpaid taxes.
The photos that caught the eye of RCMP investigators show a grinning Bernier sharing a stage and shaking hands with Chamas, who is listed as president of a Delaware-based company called Global Village International Solutions.
