QUEBEC — There will be a trial for the Crown’s former representative in Quebec.

The province’s former lieutenant-governor is going to face trial on fraud charges.

A judge ruled today in Quebec City that there’s sufficent evidence to send Lise Thibault to trial, slated to begin at the end of May.

Thibault, the Queen’s former representative in the province, is facing six charges over events that occurred between 1997 and 2007, when she was the province’s lieutenant-governor.

She is accused of making $700,000 in improper expense claims.

Thibault is charged with two counts of breach of trust, two of fraud and two related to false or counterfeit documents.

She pleaded not guilty to the charges in October 2009.
