The federal Conservative Party received donations from dozens of employees at three engineering firms now implicated in high-profile police investigations into Quebec’s construction industry.

Such donations to Canada’s governing party, and to a lesser extent the opposition Liberals, illustrate that federal politics is no stranger to the corporate ties now being scrutinized by police and an upcoming provincial inquiry in Quebec.

As Ottawa unveiled billions in economic stimulus spending in 2009, Conservative coffers in one Montreal riding were flooded with contributions from individuals affiliated with firms that have since become mired in collusion scandals.

Quebec corruption crackdown hits Montreal city hall  May 17 2012 | Globe & Mail

Quebec’s corruption crackdown struck the heart of Montreal’s city hall and its construction industry on Thursday with the arrest of construction magnate Paolo Catania, Frank Zampino, a former city councillor who was the right-hand man of Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay, and former fundraiser Bernard Trépanier.

While investigators have scooped up municipal officials in Montreal suburbs, it’s the first time the corruption investigation has made arrests near the top of Mr. Tremblay’s administration. Last month, police arrested 15 people, including construction magnate Antonio Accurso, on charges of corruption, fraud, conspiracy and bribery, in the anti-corruption squad’s first major operation.

Nine men were arrested in Thursday’s sweep and charged with fraud and conspiracy. Mr. Catania and the former civic officials also face charges of abuse of trust. Police allege the men, led by Mr. Zampino, rigged a deal on a $300-million condo development in the east end of Montreal.

Investigators say the city officials fed information to Mr. Catania’s firm, Construction Frank Catania, that helped it craft a winning bid for a large swath of city-owned land at a low price in 2007. In return, the city officials allegedly received about a million dollars in cash and gifts, including money intended for Mr. Tremblay’s party, Union Montreal.

The allegations have not been proven in court….

Quebec provincial police have arrested 11 people in connection with an anti-corruption investigation in several communities south of Montreal.

The arrests were made Thursday following an investigation by Quebec’s permanent anti-corruption squad, UPAC.

Sûreté du Québec officials say the accused were involved in a collusion scheme since 2007 involving municipal infrastructure projects in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu. The case also involves projects in Carignan, Lacolle and Henryville.

Police say the case involved seven contracts worth $20 million. The alleged fraud is estimated at $1 million.

Police say two of the accused worked for the city of St-Jean-sur-Richelieu. Investigators also targeted 9 construction companies.

About 77 charges are expected to be laid in all. The suspects are accused of a wide range of charges including breach of trust, influencing a public official, defrauding the government, producing and using counterfeit documents, accepting a bribe, extortion and conspiracy…
