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