More on David Chartrand's candidacy challenge!

Tansi/Good Day Folks:

Attached to the letter sent Chief Electoral Officer Alvin Zivot challenging David Chartrand's candidacy was a second document shown below. The challenger obviously visited the Companies Office (Manitoba Finance) located at 1010 Broadway Avenue, Winnipeg (Woodsworth Building). For a nominal fee ($5) anyone can have an online search done of corporations and businesses registered in the province - information such as company name, location, Directors, ownership and share structure (we used this approach a couple years ago to see what we could find out about Duck Bay Fish Packers). Here are the results.

Note: Duboff Edwards & Co. is most likely Winnipeg law firm Duboff Edwards Haight & Schhachter which has done significant legal work for the MMF over the years. A couple examples:

(1) During March 2003, Hilda Mary Boucher and her husband Robert were set upon by a Conservation Manitoba Officer doing a routine compliance check. They were not in possession of a valid fisher's license while using nets registered to another person (David Chartrand) so Ms Boucher was charged under the Manitoba Game And Wildlife Act. According to the report filed, a copy of which was obtained from the Dauphin, Manitoba Courthouse, by way of explanation Ms. Boucher told the gentleman David Chatrand was busy campaigning for the election.

At a brief 2004 court appearance (she did not attend), Ms Boucher was represented by Mr. Harvey Haight who pleaded quilty on her behalf. She was fined and assessed court costs. I gleaned this information not from internal MMF documents but by attending the hearing. Spoke with newly married Lionel Chartrand who was also in the courtroom at the time

(2) Mr. Harley Schachter has done work on the land claims case for the Federation

(3) Paul Edwards is a former Liberal MLA who was a Member when Ms Sharon Carstairs was Official Leader of the Opposition. If my memory serves me correctly he was part of a Hearing, along with then Chief Electoral Officer Alvin Hamilton, which decided the eligibility of a couple candidates running for President in 2000. They were eventually disqualified for owing money to the Federation. The only one to survive was Jack Fleming who got wind of what was happening and quickly made a payment
