Report Says SNC-Lavalin Won $1.6 BILLION Contract Despite Failing To Meet Minimum Technical Standards

Report Says SNC-Lavalin Won $1.6 BILLION Ottawa LRT Contract Despite Failing To Meet Minimum Technical Standards

A CBC report is alleging that the City of Ottawa gave SNC-Lavalin the $1.6 Billion contract “to extend and maintain Ottawa’s north-south LRT line” despite the fact that SNC-Lavalin didn’t even meet the minimum technical qualifications for the project.

Meanwhile, the two other bidders on the contract met and exceed those standards.

“However, sources with direct knowledge of the Stage 2 evaluation process told CBC that SNC-Lavalin failed to achieve the minimum technical score of 70 per cent, a requirement set out in publicly available documents. CBC is not naming the three sources because they are not authorized to speak with the media.”

And the City of Ottawa government has clammed up:

“Again this week, the city refused to say whether SNC-Lavalin made the minimum grade, citing commercial confidentiality of the process. Given more than two business days to respond to inquiries, the city refused to provide an in-person interview, sending instead an email attributed to Chris Swail, the director of O-Train planning.”

This is total corruption on a massive scale. If it can be proven that City Councillors in Ottawa voted for SNC-Lavalin to get the contract while knowing that they failed to meet the qualifications, then those councillors must be removed from office and even face potential legal action.
