Until now, a publication ban has shielded this facet of the so-called Toronto 18 conspiracy,

the scheme to cause carnage on the streets of Canada's most populous city that was derailed by a series of arrests in 2006.

It's alleged that Mr. Abdelhaleem was a key player, and was particularly fixated with blowing up the Toronto Stock Exchange building in a bid “to affect the economy,

to make it lose half a trillion dollars,” according to Crown allegations ...

It begins to look as though there is widespread corruption going on here. Perhaps, we shouldn't be surprised if there is. The election campaigns of most municipal politicians are funded largely by contributions from real estate developers (the mayor of Vaughan, Ontario, Lorna Jackson, recently reported that two thirds of her election campaign contributions came from developers are builders). To believe the developers are signing cheques because they are just public - spirited people who want to help along the democratic process would be a bit naive.



Anyone who makes a large campaign contribution at any level of politics is hoping for a pay - off. Under normal circumstances there is nothing wrong with this. Large campaign contributions must be reported, so it's a simple matter to see if a councillor's vote has been bought. But, given that developers fund so much of municipal politics, it shouldn't come as a big surprise that, generally, their needs get a more favourable hearing than those of individual voters (see sidebar on monster homes).



The real problem is the unreported contributions known usually under their more common name of bribes. Humans are creative animals and they have figured out dozens of ways of hiding bribes to make them look like something else. A politician's campaign printing may be billed to a real estate developer as promotional material. Similar disguises are used to cover up the hiring of meeting halls, meals, and campaign signs.
