It’ll be a busy day for Timmins city councillor Rick Dubeau on Tuesday.

On top of the first council meeting of 2018, Dubeau is due in court on charges of Corruption of a Municipal Official and Breach of Trust by a Public Officer.

The councillor has yet to make an appearance in public court and it’s unknown if he will appear this time around.

Court documents allege Dubeau offered to act in a preferential manner to Goldcorp at city council in exchange for the company to purchase his home at a premium.

The charges haven’t been proven in court and Dubeau has claimed innocence throughout.
