Summary The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. tells the story of Karlheinz Schreiber, the "man who was the catalyst for the party funding scandal in Germany, thus forcing the resignations of a handful of CDU politicians, including the current party leader, and former Chancellor Helmut Kohl from his post as honorary chairman. It also caused former Deputy Defense Minister Holger Pfahls to flee the country after being charged with receiving a bribe from Schreiber. Schrieber is also well known in Canada, mainly for his secret dealings with members of the Conservative Party in the 1980s and early 1990s under then Prime Minister Brian Mulroney."
