The mayor of London, Ont., has been found guilty on charges of fraud, forgery and breach of trust that date back to his time as a Liberal MP.

Joe Fontana admitted that as a member of Parliament he altered a contract that he submitted for expenses in 2005, but had argued the $1,700 the government paid out was not for his son's wedding.
