Mayor Marcel Guibord, Councillors Diane Choinière and Guy Félio, and local lawyer and developer Stéphane J. Lalonde are all charged with breach of trust. Lalonde is also charged with counselling to commit breach of trust.
The charges resulted from an OPP investigation of a series of email exchanges between the four following the 2010 municipal election.
The case has been tied up with pre-trial conference in-camera sessions between the lawyers for the accused and the Crown Counsel’s office. The case was on the docket for the July 30 provincial court session in L’Orignal and was adjourned to the Oct. 1 court session.
The matter is now scheduled for the first appearance portion of the public court proceedings.
