Written by François Perreault and translated by Carl Angers.
Published by Douglas & McIntyre Ltd., 2006.


Late in 2003, revelations about the misuses of federal funds in Quebec during the 1995 referendum rocked the country. Prime Minister Paul Martin responded by creating an independent commission of inquiry into the sponsorship scandal and allegations of corruption within the Canadian government — a commission that was to be led by one man, Justice John H. Gomery. The Commission of Inquiry into the Sponsorship Program and Advertising Activities is now an indelible part of Canadian history.

Justice Gomery chose François Perreault, a trusted and experienced journalist, to be the spokesman for one of the most closely scrutinized commissions in the country’s history. Perreault was the interface between the Gomery Commission and the journalists in the press room.

Inside Gomery is Perreault’s compelling behind-the-scenes account. The book follows the commission from its formation, to the appointment of Judge Gomery and recruiting of legal counsel, through the months of highly publicized hearings and the production of two reports, completed in spite of unprecedented political turmoil. Naming names and skilfully navigating the corridors of power into the heart of the nation, Perreault delivers a cautionary tales for every Canadian.

For further reading, may we suggest: Commission of Inquiry into the Sponsorship Program and Advertising Activities (Gomery Commission)
