Consenza was hub of major contracts
Catching up with corruption news: the city has signed half a billion dollars’ worth of contracts since 2006 with firms that regularly sent payments to the Consenza bar. Also one of those firms recently won a nice municipal contract after all the other contenders “inexplicably” withdrew from competition.
Radio-Canada also notes that it’s six years since the fall of the Concorde viaduct in Laval, killing five people, and no one has taken the blame for the flaw that led to the collapse. The close-knit Quebec engineering community, nobody wanting to point the finger at anyone else, is hinted at as a possible reason why.
