NS Businessman jailed in Boston

A Nova Scotia businessman who fled across the border from Maine to New Brunswick on a snowmobile has been jailed for 18 months in Boston.

69 year old Cyril Gordon Lunn, who made a fortune developing properties in Massachusetts, hid as much as $4 million in Canadian banks after declaring bankruptcy in 2001. He fled from Presque Isle across the border into New Brunswick on a rented snowmobile in 2005 and authorities didn’t find him until last year.
