Fraud trial begins for former OPP union executives

Three top officials of the union for Ontario Provincial Police officers were among five people who secretly bought a travel agency in a deal partially financed with union funds, and then directed union business to it, a Toronto jury was told Tuesday.

“All five accused men worked together to hide or conceal the truth about what they were doing,” prosecutor David Friesen said during his opening remarks at the start of the fraud trial in Superior Court.

The Ontario Provincial Police Association (OPPA) has about 10,000 dues-paying members, including both uniformed police officers and civilian employees. The OPPA uses the money it collects to run its operations, including representing members in collective bargaining.
