Contrecoeur trial: Prosecution focuses on Zampino’s numerous trips with developers

The prosecution focused on Frank Zampino’s close ties and the numerous personal vacations he took with developers who regularly won multi-million-dollar city contracts as the former No. 2 politician at Montreal’s city hall took the stand for the seventh day on Friday.

Prosecutor Pascal Lescarbeau started with Zampino’s March 2008 trip to Florida with his wife and daughter. They stayed at the Trump International Sonesta Beach Resort in Sunny Isles, along with Bernard Trépanier, the former fundraiser for Zampino’s political party, and developer Paolo Catania.

Earlier in the trial, which started 19 months ago, a travel agent told the court the cost of each $1,100 air ticket and up to four nights stay in the deluxe suites, at US$459 to $US509 a night, were paid for on Catania’s company credit card from Construction Frank Catania et Associés inc.

Zampino, Catania and four executives of the construction firm are charged with fraud and conspiracy in connection with the sale to Catania of a city-owned 38-hectare site of land in east-end Montreal designated to be the site of a housing project of up to 1,800 residences. 

Maxi employee Clémence Beaulieu-Patry stabbed to death while doing overtime, jury hears

People who tried to save Clémence Beaulieu-Patry’s life only seconds after she was stabbed quickly came to the realization they were fighting a losing battle.

The jury assembled to hear evidence in the first-degree trial of Randy Tshilumba, 21, heard dramatic testimony at the Montreal courthouse on Friday from two witnesses who tried in vain to save the young woman’s life. In her opening statement, prosecutor Catherine Perreault said the Crown will prove Tshilumba stabbed Beaulieu-Patry 14 times with a long knife only days after she turned down a request to go on a date with him. The victim was stabbed at her workplace, a Maxi supermarket on April 10, 2016, after having accepted a request to work overtime. 

“It was just one hour, but for Clémence it was one hour too much,” Perreault said. 

All least two people came to Beaulieu-Patry’s aid seconds after she was stabbed, including a nurse who happened to be shopping for groceries at the time. 

Clémence Beaulieu-Patry was killed on April 10, 2016.
