Phil Sheegl, the corrupt (former) CEO of Winnipeg’s City Hall
THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, this dishonest and greedy fellow, Phil Sheegl, was brought to Winnipeg’s city hall to act as its top bureaucrat, without having any relevant qualifications and with no record of integrity. His appointment was for the sole purpose of assisting his friend, Sam Katz, mayor of Winnipeg at the time, in ripping off the tax payers and criminally enriching both Katz and himself, as well as a local powerful real estate firm known as “Shindico”.
Phil did well for his master Katz and the Shindleman brothers, owners of “Shindico”: In Phil’s time as CEO the city got involved in shady real estate deals; juicy contracts were awarded to ‘old friends’ with no bid; public trust has been absolutely lost; city council has been misled time after time; and kickbacks from “Shindico” and others went to both Phil and the friend and boss, Katz, on multiple occasions and in various sophisticated ways (including phony purchase of season expensive tickets to hockey games). Phil eventually resigned, just days before a chilling audit of real estate deals involving city hall was set to be released- which allowed him to never have to comment on it.
This audit’s findings resulted, later on, with an RCMP lengthy investigation, which at this time is still pending, with millions of dollars of tax payers’ money at-stake. It has not stopped Phil of continuing to collect the highest pay in city hall for a whole year after his resignation, when not working anymore for city hall, as per his personal employment contract that his accomplice Katz was quick to approve… Since then Phil spends most his time in Scottsdale, Arizona, by the pool, declining to answer any questions by reporters and refusing to cooperate with the RCMP team of commercial crime investigators assigned to this serious case for a few years now. This shameless crook brought a shame upon the city and my Winnipeg Jewish community.
Certainly, he has somehow never yet faced any justice. Turn yourself in, Phil. Return the stolen funds. Incriminate the other members of your white-color gang, including the ‘Don’, Sam Katz. Then kneel and ask the city of Winnipeg and its local Jewish community, which reputation you have damaged, for their forgiveness!
