POCKLINGTON CLAIMS GOVERNMENT AGREED TO PAY HIM
Published October 25, 1995
Oilers Owner Peter Pocklington was in a Canadian Court yesterday, defending himself from a civil action by his former meat-packing company and the province of Alberta. Pocklington is accused of making improper payments from Gainers, the meat packing company, to his other holdings before the province seized Gainers because Pocklington failed to pay back a C$61M package of loans. Pocklington claims the payments were management fees agreed to by the provincial government (Ian Gray, FINANCIAL POST, 10/25).
