National Post: 'No bribes, no deal' for PVC pipe
According to testimony at the Charbonneau Commission, the City of Montreal may have overpaid for sub-par pipes for decades, even though a Montreal-based company supplies cities across Canada with superior PVC pipes.
Virtually every town in Quebec and the rest of Canada buys PVC pipes except Montreal, which prefers old fashioned iron pipes.
An Ipex sales manager in Quebec told commissioners it was because the company refused to pay a bribe.
âWe donât get involved in projects where we make profits on the back of taxpayers,â he told the commission.
