Disbarred lawyer who got kids drunk, and also represented Medellin Cartel members incarcerated in New Brunswick for flying $25M in cocaine, destined for Montreal? Check. Evidence of illicit drug smuggling? Check. Insurance fraud? Check. Tax fraud? Check, check and check.

Oh, and a plot to attack the NB jail and break out the smugglers? Check.

I presume you are referring to the piece of trash that slaughtered 22 people.

OT:

CPP isn't self-funded. Today's contributors pay today's recipients. There is a fraction covered by investment profits of the funds as well. Basically just taxing today's workers to pay yesterday's.
Incorrect. General revenues cover the majority of current expenditures. Current contributions are invested; those investments generate income which covers (in theory) program costs since the inception of the investment account.

Money's fungible. There's no meaningful separation between "money in" and "money out" which provides that the former is invested and the latter obtained from investment profits. That the CPPIB is able to build up the fund because contributions in exceed benefits out and the rate of return to plan members is frequently less than what the fund earns does not change that; it's just a solvency buffer.
