Stolen Valour-Canada; Michel-Éric Castonguay

| December 14, 2017 | 29 Comments

Our friends at Stolen Valour-Canada get another notch in their pistol grip by busting Michel-Éric Castonguay who, with absolutely no military service, paraded about pretending to be a major of paratroopers. He was featured in the French-language La Presse.

Photos of Mr. Castonguay in uniform, wearing a rank of major and many insignia and medals, were released on December 9 on the Facebook page “Stolen Valor Canada”, an organization that has given itself the duty to unmask the people posing as soldiers, which earned him a shower of insults on the site in question …

According to Stolen Valor Canada, Castonguay admitted to being an absolute impostor, while claiming to have handed his fake medals and phony insignia to a military commander in the Quebec City area in the summer of 2014.

A version that seems credible this time since his employer at the time, the Liberal MP Montmorency, Raymond Bernier had received a letter from the Canadian Armed Forces informing him of the imposture of his political attaché in August 2014 .

In an official letter to the MP, a military official warned that if Mr. Castonguay made yet another public appearance in uniform, he would face legal action.

    Michel-Éric Castonguay, 38, from Montmagny, saw his fabricated story collapse this morning when La Presse leaked some information about it.

    Indeed, in the La Presse edition of Tuesday, December 12, 2017, Michel-Éric Castonguay – a supposed Canadian Armed Forces major – allegedly took part in military events, dressed in a medal-dressed uniform, while the latter had never served in the latter.

    According to La Presse, Forces spokesman Daniel Lebouthillier was unable to confirm whether Castonguay had served in the Canadian Army.

    “We are unable to confirm that this individual served as a member of the Canadian Armed Forces. The military is very proud to wear the uniform, a right they have acquired through hard work and sacrifice in the service of our country. Any unauthorized use of the military uniform can be investigated by civil authorities, “he said.

    Photos of Mr. Castonguay in uniform, wearing a rank of major and many insignia and medals, were released on December 9 on the Facebook page “Stolen Valor Canada”, an organization that has given itself the duty to unmask the people posing as soldiers, which earned him a shower of insults on the site in question …

    According to Stolen Valor Canada, Castonguay admitted to being an absolute impostor, while claiming to have handed his fake medals and phony insignia to a military commander in the Quebec City area in the summer of 2014.

    A version that seems credible this time since his employer at the time, the Liberal MP Montmorency, Raymond Bernier had received a letter from the Canadian Armed Forces informing him of the imposture of his political attaché in August 2014 .

    In an official letter to the MP, a military official warned that if Mr. Castonguay made yet another public appearance in uniform, he would face legal action.

    The member would later have demanded that his employee return the uniform and his medals to national defense.

    “I even asked a political attaché to accompany him. I also forbade him to participate in any military activity, direct or indirect, “he told La Presse.

    The Liberal MP nevertheless decided to keep Castonguay in his job as he had two children and was very competent in his work with the citizens of the county.

    Note, however, that Michel-Éric Castonguay has not been employed by Raymond Bernier since October 2017. It would also be a voluntary departure.

    He now works as General Manager at the Bingo Secretariat, which brings together and represents the players who benefit from the spin-offs generated by the group games industry, in order to contribute to the funding of non-profit organizations (NPOs).

    Involved in politics with the conservatives

    In addition to being a political attaché to Montmorency Liberal MP Raymond Bernier, Michel-Éric Castonguay also worked for two Conservative ministers, Christian Paradis and Denis Lebel when Stephen Harper led Canada.

    In addition, he was also the president of the Conservative Association of Montmagny-L’Islet-Kamouraska-Rivière-du-Loup while being one of the lieutenants of Bernard Généreux when he won his first election in the Parti 2009.

    He also represented the Conservative colors in the 2011 election in the riding of Montmorency – Charlevoix-Haute-Côte-Nord.

    He was also involved with the Coalition avenir Quà © bec in his early days and even considered standing against Norbert Morin in the 2012 election.

    Joined by our news service, the former chief organizer of the Conservative Party for Quebec who is now senator in Ottawa, Ghislain Maltais was surprised by the revelations made by La Presse about one of his former candidates, explaining that at the time, the security checks had been made against him, and that nothing had been reported about him.

    “I always thought he was in the army and was a veterinarian as he claimed. He had always presented himself as such – I even called him a sheep doctor, “commented the senator, certainly surprised at the turn of events …

    For the MP for Montmagny-L’Islet-Kamouraska-Rivère-du-Loup, Bernard Généreux, the revelations of Tuesday morning about his former president of the association surprised him to the highest point.

    “I literally fall naked at the announcement of this news this morning. I never imagined that this person has usurped titles and an identity. On the other hand, in the period when Mr. Castonguay was president of the Association and co-organizer of my campaign in 2009, he demonstrated the qualities of a good worker. ”

    Doctor of veterinary medicine, really?

    Michel-Éric Castonguay ran for the 2011 election as a doctor of veterinary medicine who was conducting research in the world of sheep medicine while supporting being a veteran of Afghanistan. The applicant claimed to have a Ph.D. in veterinary medicine from the University of Glasgow, Scotland – a version he repeated many times to anyone who wanted to hear it.

    However, in the article of La Presse on December 12, the latter assures that he has never said anything of such. “I do not have a degree in veterinary medicine. I worked on a farm, which is not quite the University of Glasgow, Scotland …

    His fake military story well tied

    Several Conservatives who worked with Michel-Éric Castonguay simply do not come back, even comparing it to the journalist François Bugingo – now famous for his fake reports capturing all over the world highlighting scenes worthy of Hollywood where he never never finally set foot, or the chef Giovanni Apollo who claimed to have been born in Italy and to have been the pupil of a great chef, when everything was wrong …

    According to one of the many Conservative volunteers who lived with Castonguay, the fake soldier told him at the time that he had been wounded in Afghanistan and that at another time he would have ordered an artillery strike on the enemy troops. while he and his men were surrounded.

    Subsequently, the soldiers under the command of their officer would have been forced to bury the torn bodies of the Taliban, which would have caused then at home, a post-traumatic problem that would have earned him to take medication.

    Castonguay has told a lot of stories about his military pseudo-career and PhD in veterinary medicine from Scotland, which gave him the necessary notoriety to gravitate to the political decision-makers of a G8 government. …

      Once again, stolen valor may be only the visible tip of the frozen-sewage iceberg here.

      Apparently he’s also been lying about being a veterinarian, too. What else has he been lying about?
