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.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

    Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. Keep your eye on the sparrow! You little entitled bastard, you committed a crime and tried to cover it up. You abused your position and our trust! Too bad we don't have public nut stomping as a fitting punishment!
