The disgraced construction firm SNC-Lavalin who was at the centre of the Trudeau government’s most high-profile scandal has continued to win millions in federal contracts. Despite their corruption charges, SNC-Lavalin has continued to be eligible for government contracts. More recently, the Quebec-based firm agreed to pay $1.9 million in fines and has been under over suspicious bidding on municipal projects, according to Blacklock’s Reporter. The firm’s controversy does not stop there, however—pleading guilty to fraud last year, after which they were forced to pay a fine of $280 million. SNC-Lavalin also admitted to bribing the family of the brutal Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi so that they could win construction contracts.
