The former head of a Quebec advertising
company testified to the Gomery inquiry that he
was repeatedly asked to give cash donations to
the Liberal party, and put election workers on
his payroll, in exchange for federal sponsorship
Jean Brault said he was asked to meet Joe
Morselli, a close friend of Quebec Liberal Party
Lieutenant Alfonso Gagliano, in an Italian
restaurant and leave envelopes with thousands
of dollars in cash for the party on a chair.
"I went up to go to the bathroom," he said.
"When I got back, the money was gone."
The federal government was trying to recover
$30 million from Brault in funds related to the
$250-million sponsorship program.
