Like where in hell did he get the money to pay for an appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada?
Bruce Carson has lost an appeal against conviction for influence peddling. He had been acquitted at trial but the Crown appealed and won. Carson took that conviction to the SCC.
The Supreme Court of Canada has rejected an appeal by a former top adviser to Stephen Harper, upholding Bruce Carson's influence peddling conviction related to the sale of water treatment systems on First Nations reserves.
The ruling means Carson will return to court for sentencing on the charge, which falls under fraud offences and carries a potential prison term of up to five years.
In an 8-1 decision, the majority of justices adopted a broad interpretation of what constitutes "business relating to the government" under the Criminal Code section on influence peddling.
