BMO says Tory MP Shory is NOT being accused of fraud
Lawyers for the Bank of Montreal have clarified their position in their mortgage fraud case, indicating that the lawyers named in the suit, including Tory MP Devinder Shory, are NOT being accused of taking active part in the scheme. They are, however, simply accusing them of not doing their due diligence in dealing with these particular mortgages.
Munaf Mohamed told a hearing the bank accuses the lawyers of negligence, not fraud.That's a BIG difference, my dear Members of the Opposition... so I assume we can look forward to your apologies in the House on Monday?
"We do not allege impropriety against any of the lawyers who are named in this action," he said in response to a question from Justice Adele Kent.
