        Nix licences of corrupt construction firms, Zambito says

        Date:Oct 17,2012

        A star witness at Quebec's corruption inquiry wrapped up his main testimony with some advice on how to clean up the industry.

        Former construction boss Lino Zambito, who has admitted to taking part in bid-rigging and collusion himself, said companies or businessmen found to be involved in fraud or bid-rigging should have their licences removed for good.

        Zambito said Tuesday there are loopholes that allow businessmen to get back into the industry by starting or buying other companies.

        He said municipalities and the province could help eliminate collusion by hiring more of their own engineers and doing work internally instead of relying so heavily on private firms.

        Municipalities must also do a better job of vetting contracts and look deeper into the backgrounds of those who win contracts, Zambito suggested.

        The co-owner and vice-president of now-bankrupt Infrabec Construction was on the stand at Quebec's Charbonneau commission for a seventh day. His previous testimony has created a firestorm in Quebec, where his allegations of bid-rigging, collusion, illegal political financing and the intrusion of organized crime have made waves.
