Canada where the big fish usually get away

Quite tired of this. Looks like minister of justice was pressured to let SNC Lavalin off the hook for bribing to get contract for giant hospital and bribing Libya officials. The only thing that stopped it was her refusal which lead to her demotion. Meanwhile billions of dirty money funnel through BC casinos from China making houses unaffordable for BC residents but the investigation is bungled and nothing happens.

Perhaps the real revolutionaries are those that keep their promises.

Expect ineptitude, you'll never be disappointed again.

I have mixed feelings about this, i've spent time in African and Middle Eastern countries where bribery and corruption is the ONLY way to get business done. I was lucky enough to be present at a meeting after the British Government instituted anti corruption measures forcing British companies to not use bribery to get new contracts. I spoke with a high ranking telecoms executive who explained how pointless it was for his company to compete against the French and German companies who were using every means at their disposal to win a substantial contract.

Having said that, i'm getting tired of companies based in Quebec being treated differently by a series of Canadian Governments with constant bail outs..looking at you Bombardier.

We'll have to see what the ethics commission unearths... this case predates Trudeau and goes as far back as Chretien and Harper's entire tenure.

It may stain both major parties.

What happened/is happening here is insane, and almost comically conspicuous. Yet, nothing happens.

However, the CRA will follow me to the ends of the Earth over pennies.

I work in the automotive supply chain. I'm not against bail outs, but only as long as the company actually corrects the action that brought it to the brink. Bombardier never seems to learn. They are ALWAYS late with delivery, there are always problems with the product and they are too expensive. Simply writing a blank check for bad behavior never corrects the wrong.

Ford/GM/Chrystler are also in this boat. We need to have skilled manufacturing in this country, but I'm getting sick of us repeating the same action expecting a different outcome.
