SNC-Lavalin responds to corruption charges: ‘We’re still the most law-abiding company in Montreal’

Engineering company SNC Lavalin held a press conference this week, claiming that despite corruption charges, they are still “by far the most honest company in Montreal.”

Company representative Gaspare Dallaire named various Montreal-based companies with worse track records, including The Federal Bridge Corporation, whose leader Michael Fornier admitted to accepting 2.3 million dollars in bribes. “Yes, some of those bribes were from SNC Lavalin,” said Dallaire. “But you must understand, our bribes were a joke compared to the others.”

Dallaire went on to point out the contribution of politicians to Montreal’s ongoing corruption. “Former Mayor Michael Applebaum was jailed for taking bribes,” said Dallaire. “And don’t get me started on what the folks at St. Hubert are up to.”
