More guilty pleas from Sewer Bid-Riggers

The Competition Bureau has garnered yet another guilty plea in its clean-up of the Montreal sewer bid-rigging conspiracy. Canalisation Nord Américaine Ltée pleaded guilty in the Quebec Superior Court last Friday and will pay a $15,000 fine.  They were charged on November 22, 2011, with 3 counts of bid-rigging, in relation to contracts worth approximately $140,000.

The investigation into the sewer services cartel was launched in 2009 after companies approached the Bureau through both its Immunity and Leniency programs.  Criminal charges were laid in November, 2011 against six companies in relation to contracts worth almost $3.3 million.
