The issues with avoiding the competitive process
Oddly enough the Municipal Act has a provision that allows municipalities to avoid the competitive process.
Clause 271(1)(d) of the Municipal Act, 2001 provided that a municipality procurement by-law should specify when a tendering process is not required. A more compelling question is, "When is it permissible to purchase goods or services on a non-competitive basis?"
Why do infrastructure projects always go over budget?
In recent weeks, the pages of the Star have been filled with stories about major infrastructure development projects that have not gone according to plan.
In Toronto, there are reports that the redevelopment of two important civic buildings, the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts and Union Station, are way over budget.
$500 million cut from infrastructure spending
Facing a financial crunch, Premier Philippe Couillard is putting off the infrastructure spending spree he promised during the spring election.
Couillard had said he would boost Quebec's economy and create jobs by spending an additional $15 billion on infrastructure over the next decade.
Highway maintenance key part of infrastructure
The poor condition of Algonquin Boulevard has cost Rick Lafleur's taxi company hundreds of thousands of dollars in repairs this spring alone.
The part-owner of Vet's Taxi on Cedar Street has 50 vehicles in his fleet, but he's seeing a lot more breakdowns because of all the potholes along the city's main drag.
