330 million lawsuit against Quebec and the MUHC


Montreal-based SNC-Lavalin and Innisfree the British firm from instituting Friday in Superior Court a further $ 330 million against the Government of Quebec and the McGill University Health Centre in Montreal (MUHC), learned our Bureau of Investigation.


This lawsuit follows numerous delays, changes in estimates and delays in providing information that led to cost increases for both companies.

After negotiations that lasted about two years, the parties could finally hear again learned our Bureau of Investigation.

The former Minister of Finance of the Charest government, Monique Jérome-Forget has repeatedly said in the past that public-private partnerships do not involve increased costs.

"The PPP, it saves fraud," she had said in 2011, to justify this controversial choice that was terminated by only one bidder with a 1.3 billion contract for the construction of the University Centre.

A coalition of doctors, nurses, architects, builders and unions said no in 2011 PPP.

Recall that the former CEO of the MUHC Arthur Porter was accused of having received bribes of SNC-Lavalin.
