Mr. Speaker, favouritism, patronage, questionable ethics and donations; that is the Conservative record.
This government's management of the contracting process is troubling, and so are the close ties between the Conservatives and SNC-Lavalin. Executives donated a lot of money to the Conservatives while they were lobbying the government. Miraculously, AECL was bought by SNC. We have seen the favouritism extended to the party's friends.
Are they now hoping that Canadians will believe that there is no link between the donations and the awarding of this contract?
