Bruce Carson, former Harper aide, not guilty of influence-peddling

 


A former top aide to Stephen Harper has been found not guilty of influence-peddling.

Bruce Carson was charged in connection with his attempts to promote the sale of water purification systems for First Nations communities by a company that employed his former escort girlfriend.

The Crown argued that Carson tried to use his contacts within the Department of Aboriginal Affairs and the Prime Minister's Office to ensure the company's financial success.
