In 1993, RCMP reports they are investigating Gerald Regan for crimes of sexual assault (at the time it was against police policy to release the names of suspects before charges were laid).


Regan was the Liberal Premier of Nova Scotia from 1970 to 1978.  In 1980, he became the Federal Minister of Labour and Mines responsible for Fitness and Amateur Sports.  He lost his seat in 1984.


March 1995, Regan is charged with eighteen sex-related charges involving thirteen women.  Most of these women are in their early to late teens (14-24 years).  The complainants included six family babysitters, a secretary, a political intern, and a young reporter.


Most of these assaults occurred almost 40 years ago.


Regan hires one of the best known and most highly paid criminal defence lawyers in the country (Mr. Ed Greenspan) and drops out of sight.
