Canada not doing enough to fight corruption: OECD

Organization recommends broadening scope of anti-corruption laws


 

A new report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development says Canada isn’t doing enough to prosecute bribery. Only a single case of bribery has been prosecuted since the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act (CFPOA) was enacted in 1999, leading the OECD to believe some instances are going unpunished. It recommends expanding the scope of the CFPOA to cover all international businesses and barring those convicted of a crime from doing business with the government.

  1. the reason the government isn't doing enough to fight corruption is because they are themselves corrupt. period. that is a 100% fact !

  3. Anyone found guilty of corruption or anyone with criminal record should be banned from running government office, nor hired as public employee, nor should be given any business and government contract. There should be serious punishments for corrupt officials, not a mere laughable house arrest as what happened in BC rail case. Judges are part Canada's problem too, they seem not to see how their judgment affect and weaken the moral compass of society. Instead of enforcing the spirit of the law they are interpreting and making their own laws.

  4. The cretin bunch had infiltrated and appointed this corrupt bunch. It takes tough doings to get rid of them, being french and loud whiners, backed by the largest lawyer fund, in Canada. Money is available for EVERY frenchman that sues the English or Canada. French New Brunswick rcmp doesn't even bother with drinking driving anymore. They just use that fund to get off! Vote for the only person that can save this Country. And I see by the polls, huge numbers agree.

  6. Corrupt Liberals block any attempt at getting tough on criminals – they worry it would thin their ranks, and wallets, too much.

  8. Agreed…corruption is involved in even the smallest things now….like ensuring a workman shows up at your house at a specific time to connect something, instead of the vague 'anytime between 8 and 5' so you have to take the whole day off work.

  10. Isn't corruption a birthright in Ottawa. Mr. Carson seems to think so and Harper must agree.

  14. Prime Minister do you remember on December 16th 2003 when you cheated, deceived, lied and back-stabbed the PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVE members by signing up the reformers in the PC Party and voting twice both as reformers at Reform party and as PC members at PC party?

    Do you remember the following day on December 17th with Peter (no merger candidate) MacKay both of you ran to the offices of elections Canada and got Kinsley to open the office and break the laws of Parliament of Canada to merge the 2 parties without the 30 days cooling off period necessary by elections Canada ACT?

    You see, the foundation of your Neo Cons party was built on cheating, lies and deceit and you never stopped till today. Still you are doing the same.

    Your misery hasn't started yet and when eventually you lose your own seat and history judges you, you will be synonymous with everything bad and the worse Prime Minister Canada ever had.

    The final thing you need to remember is you went through the backdoor to get the party made and you did not care about what the PC Party members wanted and therefore you stacked the ridings with Canadian Alliance members. Therefore since the PC members never had a say the PC party should be around today.

  16. Canada's laws have long been structured by, and reflect, Harper Conservatives.

    Lax laws are helpful in keeping Conservative supporters from criminal conviction and long incarceration in the new cages Harper Conservatives are sure to build after re-election! Harper Conservatives take care of each other.

  17. So why is Doug Finley still a Senator and still helping with the current campaign since he and three others are charged with fraud for the last election, in which they appear to have helped steal taxpayers' money to buy election ads with?

    • As I understand it, he won the charges in 2010, and then election Canada appealed. He was not convicted yet; the trial is set in June. As far as your last overblown statement, the case is not an issue of taxpayers' money being stolen, but whether the money being used were from the local candidate's budget or from the Progressive Conservative party's budget. He had already won the original charge, so he is deemed innocent until the appeal will prove him otherwise. Should he be convicted, then he should be barred from any public office. Until then, sharpen your knives but hold from throwing them yet.

      • Oh in addition, you might have mistaken this case from Liberal's sponsorhip scandal. I wonder what happen to the people involve in it, and where are they now?
