Not to mention supplying munitions to US Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan...
What a pile.
SNC -Lavalin lost their moral compass a long time ago. Did you know they lost a human rights case to the tune of $2.4 billion involving paying foreign workers $3.77 an hour to work on the RAV line in Vancouver, Canada. That's correct - breaking Canadian laws and screwing workers!!!

SNC-Lavalin CEO resigns amid probe
Change at top comes as Montreal company reports 52% drop in quarterly profits
Beleaguered engineering and construction giant SNC-Lavalin has confirmed it is co-operating with police agencies over allegations of improper payments.
The confirmation comes just hours after CEO Pierre Duhaime announced his resignation after an internal investigation revealed over $50 million worth of unauthorized payments that breached the company's code of ethics.
The Montreal-based firm said Monday that Duhaime authorized payments totaling $56 million despite the objections of the company's chief financial officer.
SNC-Lavalin chairman Gwyn Morgan confirmed that the company is co-operating with authorities as part of an investigation, but would not provide more details.
Duhaime's resignation comes amid allegations he allowed the payments to "agents" in Libya and Tunisia. However, Morgan said during a conference call that the $56 million in undocumented payments are not related to either country.
It's true: SNC-Lavalin failed the technical scoring for LRT bid
Witness in ex-SNC-Lavalin exec's fraud trial offered $10 million for testimony, court told
The fraud and corruption trial of a former SNC-Lavalin executive has heard of an attempt by a lawyer representing the accused to pay off a key Crown witness currently on the stand.
Riadh Ben Aissa told a jury today the $10-million offer came while he was detained in Switzerland and was made to his legal representatives in that country by a lawyer representing the accused, Sami Bebawi.
Bebawi, 73, faces eight charges, including fraud, corruption, laundering proceeds of crime, possession of stolen goods and bribery of foreign officials.
He has pleaded not guilty to the charges, which involve contracts tied to the Moammar Gadhafi dictatorship.
Ben Aissa, a former Bebawi subordinate who became an SNC executive himself, says the money was offered in exchange for testimony corroborating Bebawi's account given to Swiss authorities. He says he refused the cash and instead filed a complaint with the RCMP.
Ben Aissa says he spent 30 months in preventive detention in Switzerland before pleading guilty there to bribing foreign officials and money laundering.....
Former SNC-Lavalin executive found guilty on all charges
A former SNC-Lavalin executive was found guilty on Sunday of paying off foreign officials and pocketing millions as he worked to secure contracts for the Canadian engineering company in Libya.
On the fourth day of deliberations, a jury found Sami Bebawi, 73, guilty of all five charges he faced, including fraud, corruption of foreign officials and laundering proceeds of crime.
Quebec Superior Court Justice Guy Cournoyer ruled Bebawi would remain free until sentencing, noting there was no new evidence to suggest he was a flight risk.
Prosecutors presented evidence that SNC-Lavalin transferred about $113 million to shell companies used to pay off people, including Saadi Gadhafi, who helped the company secure deals in Libya.
What remained in the accounts of those firms after the kickbacks were paid was then split between Bebawi and Riadh Ben Aissa, a former colleague, with Bebawi allegedly receiving about $26 million.
Bebawi did not testify, but he denied the allegations through his lawyer in closing arguments, saying the millions were compensation for completing complicated contracts, authorized by the former president of the company, Jacques Lamarre.
Bebawi was the last former SNC-Lavalin employee charged in the aftermath of an RCMP investigation into the company's dealings in Libya to have his case resolved.
The company and two of its subsidiaries still face charges that they paid nearly $48 million to public officials in Libya between 2001 and 2011 to influence government decisions. The company is also accused of fraud and corruption for allegedly defrauding various Libyan organizations of roughly $130 million.
SNC-Lavalin May Have Committed Corporate Crimes Against Libya...The West Destroyed Libya...
"...Since Canada's victory over Libya in 2011, (the occasion being marked with a full victory parade on Parliament Hill*) Libya descended into complete anarchy. It remains awash in violent anarchy. What SNC-Lavalin did in Libya was wrong and the company deserves to be punished. What Canada and NATO did in abandoning the Libyan people after ousting Gadhafi is a far greater crime."

What Canada and NATO did in abandoning the Libyan people after ousting Gadhafi is a far greater crime."
What does the writer mean in criticizing Canada and NATO for "abandoning the Libyan people"? In what way does he think Canada and NATO should have stayed with the Libyan people?
Why not ask the writer?
