OTTAWA, Feb. 14, 2014 /CNW/ - "Our government is committed to ensuring
the sound, transparent and accountable governance of Crown
corporations. We expect all federal institutions to be accountable and
to have policies in place that make good use of taxpayers' money. We
are concerned about any allegations of wrongdoing. This is why we
support all efforts to get to the facts of the matter.
"Following allegations of irregular contract awarding by Jacques Cartier
and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) in the early 2000s,
broadcasted on the Radio-Canada program Enquête on February 13, 2014, I have asked the Deputy Minister of Transport,
Infrastructure and Communities to carry out a full investigation of
what transpired at JCCBI."
