How does that make you feel?? Your position on who should be protected from being strong-armed by the elected Government seem to have a few people on the list. Who else should be exempt ??

For being somebody who promotes himself as being Mr. Science you sure do need things explained down to a level a 3 year old would find annoying.

The Law that was being used was passed with the budget, that means the bill was written prior to the Libs gaining control and they were just passing what the Cons had been delaying, or simply did not have enough time to put it through quietly so it didn't become a political issue just before an election.
All the law said was SNC could still bid on contracts (inside of Canada) if it plead guilty to bribery charges without a long trial and appeal. The 'New AG' should have used the ruling arrived at by the World Bank and banned they from bidding on any contracts in Canada as they could not do business with the companies they would need to hire. Guilty plea from SNC and a fine equal to what a trial would have resulted in without the Lawyers doubling the costs. The 2011AG should have started an investigation that long ago rather that 4 years after the WB charged then with bribery.


The 'new AG' may have had stars in her eyes when she decided to drag a Montreal based company through the mud that comes with on trial in open court. When the crime is bribery on contracts that are World Bank projects and that is going to be examined with a fine-toothed comb all the bad things attached to the IMF would be exposed. They do not like exposure, that is why the guilty with no trial was put in rather than the way it went down. The company is still toast of the foreign stage and that is why the WB blacklisted her. What is going on in Canada is she is getting to rape the taxpayers as a final parting gift for the crooks that Ottawa protects in Ontario/Quebec.


JT was trying to save her when he suggested she talk to other AG's about prosecuting a brand new law rather than looking at the cost benefits of charging them and allowing them to plead guilty and get fined. How many times has the World bank been charged and successfully prosecuted in the way it runs a foreign country. Feel free to use Cuba and Venezuela as recent examples.

Published July 2, 2015 Updated May 15, 2018

The Supreme Court of Canada announced on Thursday that it would hear the case. A date has not been set.
It's the latest twist in the corruption allegations that for years have swirled around Montreal-based SNC-Lavalin, Canada's largest engineering firm, which also faces separate RCMP charges related to allegations that $47.7-million in bribes were paid to win contracts in Libya under the regime of the late dictator Moammar Gadhafi.
Starting in 2010, the World Bank conducted its own investigation into allegations around a bid by SNC-Lavalin for a $10-million contract to manage the construction of Bangladesh's multibillion-dollar Padma Bridge project, which was being financed by the World Bank.

In 2011, the World Bank brought those allegations, including information from four unnamed "tipsters," to the RCMP. Based solely on this information, the Mounties obtained permission to wiretap conversations. The RCMP then raided SNC-Lavalin's Oakville, Ont., offices in September, 2011.
In 2012, the RCMP laid bribery charges against two now former SNC-Lavalin employees: Mohammad Ismail, the company's former director of international projects, and his boss Ramesh Shah, a former vice-president of SNC's international division.
In 2013, it added charges against Kevin Wallace, who was SNC's vice-president of energy and infrastructure, and Zulfiquar Bhuiyan, a businessman with dual Canadian-Bangladeshi citizenship who was not an SNC employee but who is alleged to have been a representative of a senior Bangladeshi official, Abdul Chowdhury.
In court last year, lawyers for the men demanded that the World Bank hand over all of its files related to the case, including those the RCMP relied upon to secure its wiretaps. Production of these kinds of documents would be not be unusual in a routine domestic criminal case, to allow the defence to scrutinize a police investigation for using unreliable witnesses, such as those with an axe to grind, or for relying on flimsy information.


https://business.financialpost.com/e...to-snc-lavalin

Out of the more than 250 companies year to date on the World Bank’s running list of firms blacklisted
from bidding on its global projects under its fraud and corruption policy, 117 are from Canada — with SNC-Lavalin and its affiliates representing 115 of those entries, the World Bank said.“As it stands today, the World Bank debarment list includes a high number of Canadian companies, the majority of which are affiliates to SNC Lavalin Inc.,” said the bank’s manager of investigations, James David Fielder.
“This is the outcome of a World Bank investigation relating the Padma Bridge project in Bangladesh where World Bank investigators closely cooperated with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in an effort to promote collective action against corruption.”
As a result of the misconduct found during the probe, the Montreal-based engineering and construction firm, and its affiliates as per World Bank policy, were debarred in April 2013 for 10 years, as part of a settlement with SNC-Lavalin. And in one fell swoop, 115 Canadian firms were blacklisted by the World Bank, making Canada seemingly look like the worst offending country.
It’s quite the jump from 2012, when no Canadian companies were barred.
The long list of debarments mainly stems from just one large Canadian firm, but it still prompted some headlines around the world to point to Canada as being home to the most corrupt companies in the world.
“It is a little surprising,” said Tim Coleman, a global investigations partner at law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in New York. “Because you do expect that the companies that are going to be highest up on the list, are going to be companies that have a reputation of corruption. And Canada is not one of those countries.”


The WB was going to protect the whistle blower but the details of the charges and investigation were made available and turned down by the Government in charge at the time, the Cons.

My bad says Pinocchio but..........it is perfectly fine for me to break the law when standing up for Canadian's jobs. That's the gist of what I got out of his remarks today. Meanwhile, he refused to address the part of the ethics commissioner's report that dealt with the refusal of the liberal government to hand over documents pertaining to the SNC scandal.

Ethics watchdog says he was denied access to evidence in SNC-Lavalin affair

The real scandal is the determined — and, it would appear, largely successful — campaign on the part of the prime minister and his officials to normalize their conduct

Even the Cons not being able to catch the crooks in the 10 years they had is not as important as the tuberculosis story that JT broke and then everybody on both sides of the aisle or in any media outlet has dared even mention in passing. That is JT's biggest crime to date..

Why Quebec sees SNC-Lavalin as an asset, not a liability

Chorus of defenders doesn't want current employees punished for past misdeeds

In Ottawa, there appears to be little sympathy these days for SNC-Lavalin, the giant engineering corporation facing prosecution for bribery schemes in Libya.
The company was hoping to strike a deal with federal prosecutors in order to avoid a trial. If guilty, it would be cut off from lucrative Canadian government contracts for a decade.
But since it was alleged last week that the Prime Minister's Office had pressured then attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to allow SNC-Lavalin to sidestep prosecution, few federal politicians have been willing to stick their necks out for the company.
In Quebec, however, where it has operated for more than 100 years, SNC-Lavalin has a chorus of defenders that include the premier, the Opposition and pundits.
  • CBC EXPLAINS

  • A closer look at SNC-Lavalin's sometimes murky past

With varying degrees of equanimity, they're concerned a guilty verdict could imperil the corporation when it is already struggling with difficult market conditions.
"For us, to see a settlement would have been the preferred option," Quebec's economy minister, Pierre Fitzgibbon, said Tuesday.
"SNC-Lavalin is a company we would like to keep healthy."
Last week, Premier François Legault acknowledged he had spoken with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and pushed for a speedy resolution to SNC-Lavalin's legal woes.

For Legault, taking the corporation to court for its past actions — the Libyan bribes were allegedly paid between 2001 and 2011 — would punish current employees who had nothing to do with any crimes.
"You have to make sure executives who did illegal things are prosecuted, and that the company pays a significant fine," Legault said Tuesday.
"But I don't think we should penalize the thousands of employees who work for SNC-Lavalin."
A jewel of Quebec Inc.

There are both economic and emotional reasons for the partiality that SNC-Lavalin enjoys in Quebec.
Only 3,400 of its 50,000 employees worldwide work in the province. But Quebec's pension fund manager — the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec — has a sizable stake in the company.
It owns around 20 per cent of SNC's shares, which have been trading at six-year lows since federal prosecutors announced in October they weren't interested in deferring prosecution.
SNC-Lavalin has, moreover, worked on some of the most iconic infrastructure projects in the province, including the James Bay hydroelectric dams and Montreal's Olympic Stadium and Mercier Bridge.
(in part)
There you go, it is an investment that would be worth pennies if any prosecutions were put forward. Who in Quebec cared if they crooked or not.

BTW the old CEO is safely in a Swiss prison, just try to get him out of the country to even testify even thought he was the star witness for the World Bank in their 2011-2013 investigation.

If the Jews hands are clean how did they not turn them in in the 15 years they were bribing people in Libya?? You are a known liar so I have the right to ask you to supply a link to some facts that supports your various opinions.

Thanks in advance as I know how much sticking to the rules means to you.


https://www.federationcja.org/en/jew...treal/history/
  • On June 5, 1832, the legislature of Lower Canada enacted the Act to Grant Equal Rights and Privileges to Persons of the Jewish Religion, supported by Louis-Joseph Papineau, leader of the Patriotes party in the Assembly, and Speaker of the House. Quebec thus became the first place in the entire British Empire to grant equal rights to Jews.
  • Judge Alan B. Gold was the first Jew to be named Chief Justice of the Court of Quebec in 1970, and the first Jew to be named Chief Justice of the Superior Court of Quebec in 1983.
  • In 1970, Dr. Victor Goldbloom was named Minister of State responsible for Quality of Environment and then in 1973 Minister of Municipal Affairs and Minister of Environment, the first Jewish member of Cabinet in Quebec.
  • In 2008, the Quebec National Assembly was the only jurisdiction in Canada to pass a unanimous resolution congratulating Israel on its 60th anniversary, affirming Quebec’s commitment to Israel’s legitimacy and its security needs while calling for a two state solution.
  • In 2008, the Quebec government also ratified the Quebec-Israel Economic and Technological Cooperation Agreement, which renewed and expanded previously signed agreements in 2007 and 1997.
  • The Jewish community has established and supports many institutions that benefit all Quebecers, including the Sir Mortimer B. Davis Jewish General Hospital where over 70% of the patients are, in fact, not Jewish.
  • The Jewish community has also contributed to the economic, cultural and academic success of Montreal, whether with iconic businesses such as Seagram’s, Brown’s and Aldo, with major developers like David Azrieli and Marcel Adams, or by its support for the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, McGill University and l’Université de Montréal.

Engaging in unethical behavior to block access to evidence in an investigation into his unethical behavior is easy. His moral standard has already been discarded, the line has already been crossed. What's a bit more corruption to try and mitigate the damage?

Justin Trudeau is supposed to be the Prime Minister of Canada, and not just the Prime Minister of Quebec. Thankfully the election coming in about two months is a national election and not just Quebec deciding who the next Prime Minister should be. 75% of the population of Canada is not in Quebec ( though more than 50% of all equalization payments do end up there but that’s a different story).

How much is Canada willing to spend to keep 3,400 people employed in a company that is blacklisted by the World Bank. How much of the profits went to the 46,600 employees that worked in different countries? How many of them are now working for companies that are not blacklisted by the World Bank?

So was Harper and he was the boss for 10 years and he didn't clue in even though the RCMP were kept informed about SNC being blacklisted by the World Bank from 2011. Nobody has properly explained how JT was able to pull that one off, let alone for a decade before he even entered politics.

I dare you to open that one up, all it would show is that is where most of the crooks live. The ones that always get away with the look if that part if going to confuse you. Think MagnaCartaII.

You dare me to open that up? OK. How many times was Stephen Harper cited for violating ethics issues by the ethics commissioner again? I’m going to have to go do a Google search to verify my answer before I give it though just in case....

..... and it seems the answer is zero. Only Justin, twice so far in less than four years versus Harper’s 10 years and nothing. It’s not up to Harper or Trudeau to charge somebody or something with a crime, but that is up to law-enforcement. It wasn’t up to Harper or Trudeau to decide who gets prosecuted and who doesn’t. That is somebody else’s job well outside of the scope of politics or so the theory goes. If It took the RCMP a decade to charge SNC Lavalin, that doesn’t fall on either Harper or Trudeau. Prosecutorial interference by the PMO Would definitely fall on the sitting Prime Minister. Is that open enough???
