WestCanMan Posted September 15, 2019 Report Share Posted September 15, 2019 Here's the trail of bread crumbs to help you refresh your memory on SNC before you vote: https://globalnews.ca/news/4954892/snc-lavalin-criminal-charges-montreal-bridge/?utm_expid=.kz0UD5JkQOCo6yMqxGqECg.0&utm_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fglobalnews.ca%2Fnews%2F4954892%2Fsnc-lavalin-criminal-charges-montreal-bridge%2F Quote In court documents, the RCMP lays out a bribery scheme involving a $127-million Jacques Cartier Bridge contract in the early 2000s. Former federal official Michel Fournier pleaded guilty in 2017 to accepting more than $2.3 million in payments from SNC-Lavalin in connection with the project. SNC has a history of bribing officials both inside and outside the country to get what they want. As a taxpayer you should believe that your government is selecting the companies that will do the best job possible with a reasonable amount of YOUR tax dollars, and not just awarding lofty contracts to companies that are owned by their friends or that give them large bribes. If SNC was willing to pay $2.3M to bribe a politician for a $127M contract, how much would they be willing to pay for a slice of the $150 Billion that Trudeau's government has announced that they are spending on infrastructure? The $2.3M amounts to 1.8% of the $127M. If they even "win" bids on 10% of the $150B that was announced that's $15B, and 1.8% of that is $270,000,000.00. So they could potentially be willing to give out $270M worth of bribes if they can find a way to do it without getting caught. I'm not saying that Trudeau accepted a bribe, or that he was even offered a bribe, but shouldn't there at least be an investigation? There isn't. And yet he created the deferred Prosecution law SPECIFICALLY for engineering firms "like" SNC that are facing criminal charges, so that they can still bid on federal contracts. It wasn't a stand-alone law that was created out in the open, it was tucked away in Part 6, Division 20 of the 560-page omnibus Bill C-74. After he created that law, and I'm going out on a limb and saying that he did it specifically for SNC but you can believe what you want, he applied pressure on Judy Wilson-Raybould to allow the law to be applied to SNC's case when, as the Attorney General, it was her opinion that it wasn't the appropriate thing to do. He removed her from the AG position, and kicked her out of the caucus, and he did all that for SNC Lavalin. Now Trudeau is doing all he can to block a proper investigation: https://globalnews.ca/news/5887824/snc-lavalin-rcmp-inquiry-canada-election/?utm_expid=.kz0UD5JkQOCo6yMqxGqECg.0&utm_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.ca%2F Quote That reportedly includes attempts to speak with individuals who say they are being stymied by the government’s refusal to lift cabinet confidentiality rules. However, no formal investigation has begun. Even Raybould isn't allowed to speak freely. How can our PM move heaven and earth for a criminal entity like SNC Lavalin, when they have a lengthy history of giving bribes which come from the public coffer, and then effectively block an investigation: https://torontosun.com/opinion/columnists/lilley-rcmp-were-blocked-from-fully-investigating-trudeaus-office-on-snc-obstruction-claims Quote Ian Shugart, the clerk, invoked cabinet confidence to block the Mounties from talking to people. and later... Quote Trudeau supported blocking nine different witnesses from giving full testimony to the ethics commissioner and the refusal to turn over documents for that investigation. He’s now backed up the decision to block the RCMP. So how serious of an issue is this for you? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
