Trudeau government awarded disgraced SNC-Lavalin MILLIONS in government contracts

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.

Despite all this, SNC-Lavalin has won $6.8 million in federal contracts since this admission. Even on the day of their fraud admission, the construction goliath was awarded a $12 thousand dollar contract by Trudeau's Department of Fisheries.

Even more troubling is the fact SNC-Lavalin was exempted from a blacklist that stops government contracts going to companies implicated in controversy—the first company in the history of Canada to receive this since that blacklist's conception.

An NDP government demanded answers from the Liberal government, asking reporters "Are they going to send a message to corporations that corruption will not be tolerated, or is it dismissed with a wink?"

"They are guilty of staggering abuses," he continued. "There is a policy in place. They should be banned. Is it only small businesses that get banned for ten years?"

The SNC-Lavalin scandal, which nearly brought down the Trudeau government last year, came about as a result of the prime minister pressuring the attorney general so that the construction firm could have an easier ride.

As a result of this, two cabinet ministers resigned and then were subsequently kicked out of caucus by Trudeau.
