EVEN THE QUEBEC LIBERALS SEEM TO BE TRYING TO COVERUP THE PAST CORRUPTIONS AGAIN

Majority of Quebecers now are still good persons. Corruption in Quebec is often  no worse over the corruptions being allowed in many other provinces, places, even like Alberta, but the Quebec politicians, bad cops  have for decades even now gone out of their way not to do much good about it. Obviously they profited from the corruptions?

A report from Quebec’s anti-collusion unit warns of dire consequences if the province doesn’t clean up the construction industry..

CLEAN UP THE WHOLE PROVINCE NOW TOO, much too many frauds,  tax evaders, bad civil and public servants, bad docotrs and nurses, bad hospital managers included

Finally, the inquiry this province needs so much

FOR DECADES TAXPAYERS MONEY HAS BEEN ALLOWED TO BE ABUSED IN PROJECTS BY THE PROVINCIAL AND MUNICIPAL POLITICS, CIVIL AND PUBLIC SERVANTS, CAUSE QUEBEC IS MUCH TOO SOFT ON CRIMES, WAS, IS A VERY POOR MANAGER OF THE TAX PAYER’S MONEY, CIVIL AND PUBLIC SERVANTS, AND VERY DELIBERATELY IT SEEMS!

For many persons the main reason Quebec did not get any portion of the recent federal ship building contract was the Quebec leaders, Premiers and Mayors included, past and present clear failure even now for decades to deal with the vast, rampant corruptions in the Construction industry and clearly elsewhere.

Two things:

–First, it’s not for the judge to go around asking for subpoena powers, grants of immunity or the status of a full public inquiry. It’s up to the government to determine the parameters of her mandate, and appoint her.

–And second, the premier can’t go around changing his message every day.

This isn’t a question of corruption. It’s a question of competence, a core attribute of governing. This week the Liberals don’t look like a gang; they look like a gang that can’t shoot straight. Read more: http://www.montrealgazette.com/sports/Habs+Liberals+both+flailing/5606715/story.html

The present limited QUEBEC hearings on corruption is still a farce, more of another cover-up is stil how many persons still do see it.

“The costs are justified,” Charest told reporters after participating in Remembrance Day ceremonies in Quebec City. Sylvie Roy, the Action democratique du Quebec legislator who first called in 2009 for a public inquiry into corruption in Quebec’s construction industry, obtained through an access to information request documents from the Quebec transport department detailing $140 million in “extras.” The starting date is November 2009 because that is when extra charges, worth 10 per cent or more of the initial contract, had to be approved by Quebec’s deputy transport minister. That practice was introduced following a report by Auditor-General Renaud Lachance, who called on the department to tighten up on the extra payments. Lachance has been named to the Charbonneau Commission, now re-constituted under Quebec’s public inquiries act, with a two-year mandate to probe all aspects of corruption and collusion in public-sector construction contracts.  In his report on collusion to rig bids on transport department contracts, former Montreal police chief Jacques Duchesneau detailed the practice of contractors making low bids to win contracts, then returning to the department seeking extra amounts to cover factors they say they did not know about when they made their bids. Roy told reporters. “The situation is pathetic. Nothing has changed.”

.. what about real justice here and elsewhere?

Quebec Premier Jean Charest made an about-face and placed the probe into corruption and collusion in the construction industry under the Public Inquiry Commissions Act, which grants it full constraining powers to conduct its investigation.
