It did not stop police from investigating, and charges were filed against Jocelyn Dupuis, former FTQ-Construction director and several top executives. In his testimony before the Charbonneau Commission on Tuesday, Pereira described how when he started working for the FTQ, other executives wanted him to concentrate on raiding his former union for good employees.
To attract more members, and to hold business meetings, Dupuis frequently brought people to the Onyx, a restaurant-bar owned by construction kingpin Tony Accurso, who has since been charged with multiple counts of fraud. He failed to reach the goal set for him, and decided to to working for International.
Overnight workers with International were not welcome at job sites. Pereira said he tried to set up a meeting with Dupuis to complain about the situation, but could not do so unless he met Dupuis at a strip club.
Pereira said his experience there bothered him. Pereira said that he tried to complain about these false receipts and other obvious evidence that Dupuis was "was living above his means" but none of the FTQ executives were interested. He then went to FTQ president Michel Arsenault to denounce the corruption, who laughed when the receipts were presented to him.
According to Pereira, Arsenault said he had never seen anything like it, and asked him not to go to the press while he investigated the matter, promising the union would take care of it. A close association of Dupuis revealed he had ties with the Mafia. A snow clearing operation is currently underway in Montreal as the first significant snowfall of the season blankets the city.
