SNC-Lavalin and its fallout

It’s impossible to ignore the wave of news about SNC-Lavalin especially now that it seems Quebec may also be bringing charges against the engineering firm.

Anyone following news here will have been aware since the MUHC scandal and other stories that SNC-Lavalin was shaking off accusations a little too often. But despite the flaws in the Trudeau administration it will annoy me a lot if this scandal lands us with another Tory government in reaction to it.

Some interesting thoughts on bribery in corrupt countries from CBC’s Neil Macdonald.

Update: Quebec may be investigating SNC-Lavalin over a contract to refurbish the Jacques-Cartier bridge. It might be simplest just to tell us which of their contracts were not truqué.
