London Ontario Mayor, Joe Fontana, a prominent Ontario Liberal, is in court today, facing fraud charges for allegedly submitting an invoice, which was doctored, for payment to the House of Commons. The Crown suggests Fontana billed the House of Commons for his Son's wedding.
Last week as you see here, Liberal leader Kathleen Wynne is seen here shaking Mayor Fontana's hand during an election stop in London.

In today's prosecution the Crown asked this in the cross examination:
"In your 18 years as an MP, how many documents did you falsify?"
Replied an indignant Fontana, "Pardon me?"
"You heard me," said Zuber.
"None," replied Fontana.
"Then why wouldn't you remember this?" the Crown asked.
