When we hired him, we looked at the results of Richard Tardif in similar positions. We were convinced he was the best candidate. After all, Richard Tardif had worked as an accountant for the Office of the Auditor General of Canada, for Telefilm Canada, which is a major Canadian crown corporation, and for the Société de la Place des Arts, which is a major Quebec crown corporation. So we did not feel we needed to verify his accounting designations.
