The high-profile case of billionaire Frank Stronach, who is facing multiple charges of sexual assault spanning several decades, took an unexpected turn during a brief hearing at a Brampton court on Monday. Stronach, 91, did not appear in person as his defence lawyer, Christopher Lutes, requested an adjournment to allow time for full disclosure from the prosecution.

Crown attorney Alexandra Berg outlined that the first wave of comprehensive disclosures, including video statements and officer notes tied to the initial three complainants, has been received by the Crown’s office and is set to be disclosed to the defence imminently. A second wave of evidentiary details related to additional complainants is also in progress.

Despite Stronach’s absence from the court proceeding, expectations were high as the case faces delays ahead of the next hearing scheduled for October 7. Stronach, a significant figure in the business world, faces a total of 13 criminal charges, encompassing sexual assault, attempted rape, and indecent assault. The charges span from as early as 1977 to February this year.

In a statement, a spokesperson for MasterCraft affirmed that Stronach has no current association with the company. The statement expressed dismay over the charges, highlighting that the alleged actions contradict the company’s core values and commitment to a safe and respectful work environment.

Known for his role in founding Magna International, an auto parts manufacturing company based in Aurora, Stronach has earned accolades including the Order of Canada. Peel Regional Police were the first to announce charges against Stronach, with subsequent charges being added later. Stronach’s lawyer maintains that his client categorically denies all allegations and is committed to vigorously defending against them.
