Police wiretapped Gérald Tremblay: Gazette

The Gazette got its paws on some newly released UPAC search warrants, so Linda Gyulai has a story about police wiretapping Gérald Tremblay in 2015, crying on the phone with his onetime assistant and asking her to hang onto a document for him. But the entire story spreads out into the epic of UPAC trying to untangle the funding of the 2005 FINA Aquatics Championship from other shady doings around Tremblay’s city hall, so there’s no clear dénouement.

Update: In response to this story, Tremblay has sent a copy of a document to the media which he claims is the one under discussion in the phone conversation. It’s clear from the tone of the Le Devoir writer that there’s some skepticism that this is true.
