The Alberta Crown Prosecution Service (ACPS) has confirmed that no charges will be laid against Naheed Nenshi following an investigation into an alleged plot to entrap him into accepting illegal Russian money while serving as mayor of Calgary.

ACPS reviewed the evidence and determined they did not meet the suit's standards, a spokesperson said in an email.

In the fall of 2022, the Canadaland news site reported that several people were involved in a scheme to trap the former mayor into accepting illegal Russian money.

To achieve this, a certain David Wallace, who would have been hired by opponents of Naheed Nenshi, would have approached two municipal councilors: Joe Magliocca, then councilor of Ward 2, and Sean Chu councilor of district 4.

Mr. Wallace presented himself as an advisor to commercial investors, according to information from Canadaland. He thus wanted to attract Naheed Nenshi into an alleged collusion between him and Russian investors through colleagues, according to the document.

Mr. Chu and Mr. Magliocca then wrote a letter to the Russian government inviting them to invest in the metropolis.

The alleged plot was exposed in October 2022, when David Wallace leaked this letter on social media X, formerly Twitter. The two men claim that this appeal went unheeded.
