100 Days is the untold story about how corporate governance felled Nortel Networks, the legendary Canadian technology firm. What began in 2003 as a routine re-examination of the company’s balance sheet quickly transformed into a witch hunt as outside investigators concluded Nortel’s accounting was suspect and the company’s directors accepted this as fact. It took nearly a decade before Ontario Superior Court Justice Frank Marrocco determined that no crime had been committed.
The Ottawa Citizen’s associate business editor James Bagnall tells the surprising tale of the independent probe that started it all, the Texas assistant district attorney who didn’t buy its conclusions, and the RCMP officers and Ontario Crown attorneys who did.
100 Days is a chilling exposition of how three former Nortel executives were for years denied a presumption of innocence, before they finally had their day in court.
