In light of recently released new RCMP documents exposed publicly, it seems like legal complications of suspended Sen. Patrick Brazeau are growing intense and have reached beyond his Senate housing expenses. Court documents revealed publicly show that the RCMP is also investigating his tax filings from even before he entered the Senate. It was alleged that Brazeau used his father-in-law’s address on a reserve in Quebec in order to gain a tax exemption, although he had never have lived there.
The RCMP claim that Brazeau is suspected to have misinformed the federal government at the time of filing his tax returns from 2004 to 2008, which lead him to acquire an on-reserve tax exemption by alleging that he lived on the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation, i.e. almost 130 kilometres north of Ottawa. Upon his appointment to the Senate, the driver’s licence of Brazeau claimed he lives at 9 Kiniw Zibi Mikan in Maniwaki, P.O. box 353. The lead RCMP investigator, Cpl. Greg Horton, wrote in the official documents that the address is within the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation territory, and allegedly belongs to his former father-in-law.
Horton reveals that Chief Gilbert Whiteduck, who has been part of the community since 1973 and chief since 2008, testified that “Brazeau has never lived” at the home “and in fact has never lived on the reserve.” Whiteduck informed police that Brazeau only visited his now ex-wife on the reserve, “but (has) never been a resident.”
