Following a steady stream of failed attempts to avoid the hotseat, former construction contractor Tony Accurso will finally face questioning at the Charbonneau Commission on corruption in the construction industry on Tuesday September 2.

The commission was slated to reconvene on Monday August 25 but was instead delayed for eight days for reasons that were left unexplained.

Originally Judge France Charbonneau stated that the return would take place on September 2, but during the summer that date was moved up to August 25, and it has now been returned to the original post-Labour Day date.

Accurso, whose name has come up on multiple occasions in previous testimony, failed in all of his attempts to avoid appearing before the commission.

Accurso was formerly head of the Louisbourg and Simard-Beaudry construction firms.
