The mayor of Montreal, Michael Applebaum, has been arrested on fraud charges linked to real estate deals worth tens of thousands of euros.
It is the latest in a series of scandals involving Canadian local politics and comes months after his predecessor Gerald Tremblay quit over corruption accusations.
َApplebaum is Montreal’s first Anglophone mayor in a century and pledged to stamp out fraud when he took office last November.
He faces charges relating to acts he is said to have committed as leader of Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough between 2006-11.
