Earl Jones: The Power of Plurality

QC starts $6M econ fraud squad

Montreal Gazette

MONTREAL -- A new, 11-member specialized squad will be assembled to investigate financial crime, the Quebec government announced Sunday.

Justice Minister Kathleen Weil, Public Security Minister Jacques Dupuis and Finance Minister Raymond Bachand announced $6 million worth of measures to fight financial crimes during a press conference at Sûreté du Québec headquarters.

Quebec will also ask for amendments to the federal Criminal code that would see financial fraudsters spend longer terms behind bars and ensure that criminals are forced to reimburse the proceeds of their crimes.
