Quebec construction industry rife with corruption: Report

Dirty cash may end up in political coffers


 

A report prepared by Quebec’s anti-corruption squad claims to have found chronic overcharging and possible political payoffs in the province’s construction industry. The interim report, obtained by Radio-Canada, says private firms routinely inflate costs and often overbill the government for work. Some of those profits then allegedly make their way back to political parties through donations.

  1. Hmmm. Just like adscam, which was after all a Quebec ad man scam in collusion with the Quebec wing of government.

    Sounds like Maclean’s hit the nail on the head last with that “most corrupt province” label.
