Former cégep executive arrested for fraud, breach of trust


A former executive of Collège Lionel-Groulx has been arrested by the Unité permanente anticorruption (UPAC) for allegedly defrauding the institution’s student union out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. A statement from UPAC explains that Eric Boily is facing charges of fraud and a breach of trust; crimes which they say occurred between 2011 and 2018 at the cégep. Sources report that during this time, the cégep’s student association had to suspend select student activities and close its student café due to a lack of funds. Boily has been released and is expected to appear in court on September 26.
