Bernard Roy, former Chief of Staff to Briam Mulroney and chief counsel at the Gomery Inquiry, has been appointed to head the Montreal Port Authority.
The announcement hasn't been officially announced, but word is spreading on the Hill.

While none of the Opposition parties in the House seem too interested in corruption, the Senate will be asked in mid-week to look into the issue of Brian Mulroney's acceptance of $300,000 in cash from Airbus Karl-Heinz Schreiber for consulting about a "pasta business". Schreiber is still fighting extradition to Germany, where he's wanted for his role in a bribery scandal that destroyed the Christian Democrat government and ended the career of Helmut Kohl. Schreiber's bail is guaranteed by, among others, former Trudeau finance minister Marc Lalonde and retired Tory minister Elmer McKay, who's father of foreign minister Peter McKay.
Such a small world.
