The government of Quebec tries to obtain the collaboration of the Bahamas in order to identify the Inhabitant of Quebec who hides behind a investment fund being investigated and found guilty of insider trading. The fund is called Kenneth W Solomon Investment Fund and its brokerage account is in Montreal. Officially, the Kenneth fund, of the Bahamas, was the property of the offshore manager Martin Tremblay. "The MFA required the assistance of the ministry for the Justice of Quebec so that the ministry for the Justice of Canada uses the international mechanisms of mutual aid in order to obtain the assistance of the Bahamas". The laws of the Bahamas concerning the confidentiality prevent the MFA from effectively pursuing its investigation of Kenneth. The Bahamas generally do not collaborate to help foreign legislations, unless it regards a penal or criminal business.
