LETTER: Babes in the woods

The SNC-Lavalin headquarters is seen in Montreal on February 12, 2019. SNC-Lavalin, facing a 10-year ban from federal business over corruption charges, urged the Liberal government to water down the penalty scheme for corporate misconduct to the point a guilty company could completely dodge a ban on receiving public contracts.

SNC-Lavalin has been charged with corruption and bribery related to Libyan contracts. Conviction would disqualify the Quebec multinational and darling of the federal Liberal party from federal contracts for the next decade.

Whatever The Globe and Mail might report, what former cabinet minister Jody Wilson-Raybould and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau might say, the provincial government and Nalcor Energy have absolutely nothing to worry about in their dealings with SNC-Lavalin and the Muskrat Falls hydro development.

When it comes to taking candy from a baby, it is never necessary to bribe, corrupt, threaten or use violence. The baby’s own dumb tit or rattle usually works fine.
