MONTREAL, Oct. 31, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - The Disciplinary Council of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec rendered its decision on guilt and sanction in the case of Bruno Crispin who has been ordered to pay a total of $20,000 in fines. In its decision, the Disciplinary Council also ordered Mr. Crispin to pay all costs in connection with the proceedings.
For tolerating the arrangement of a contract sharing scheme that made it possible to circumvent the city of Saint-Jérôme's competitive bidding process, Mr. Crispin was found guilty of violating several sections of the Code of Ethics of Engineers, including those pertaining to the use of dishonest or doubtful practices and a lack of integrity.
Mr. Crispin's offences were committed between 2007 and 2010, while he was Director and Assistant Vice-President, Municipal Infrastructures, at Dessau.
The full version of the Disciplinary Council's decision, including the summary of charges, is available on the OIQ's Web site.
As a reminder, the sanctions imposed by the Disciplinary Council are meant to protect the public by dissuading professionals from repeating offences and by setting an example for other members of the profession.
