Who knew that Kanata South Councillor Allan Hubley moved in these kinds of exotic circles?
If you check Hubley’s campaign donation documentation from 2010, you’ll see a name Nathan Jacobson on it (the document is below).
Jacobson donated to the limit of individual contributions in municipal campaigns at the time, a modest $750.
But Jacobson has led one of the most extraordinary lives that a Canadian could … both good and bad. He had connections among the highest ranking federal Conservatives, had been ushered into the offices of the presidents of Russia and Syria, had the U.S. government withdraw a guilty plea for money laundering (but the U.S. government kept a $4.5-million fine he paid in relation to the charges), had acted as an unofficial envoy of Israel in trying to find a peace agreement with Syria, had acted for the Mossad, was a noted philanthropist, had business interests from Canada to Central America to Russia, had Canadian cabinet-minister friends and had a run-in with CSIS.
That’s just the tops of the waves.
And there he is on Hubley’s 2010 campaign contribution sheet. Of all people, Allan Hubley, who was quoted recently for misplacing his train whistle in regard to Ottawa’s troubled LRT project and is as loyal a voter with Mayor Jim Watson as is possible on council.
