Well, it's good to know that at least somone in Canerda has his act together.
Too bad it's the Mafia.
Too bad all those old gags about "cementing" good relationship with government and legit biz are all based on hard-edged reality.
At least, that appears to be the case in La Belle Province.
And Alberta and B.C. too.
(I was appraoching Marine Drive on Cambie Street on Friday and I found myself, stopped at the traffic light, gazing idly at those so attractive cement pillars holding up the new Canada Line and thinking once again about the unavoidable fact - $13 Million/kilometre for LRT vs. $133 Million for SkyJoke. Which raised the age old question: Whose cousin got the cement contract?)
Some intrepid souls are even asking for an inquiry into ties between government, business and organized crime.
Antonio Nicaso, the author if several books on crooks, says, "I don't think in Canada there is political will or commitment to fight organized crime."
All three feral parties...oh, scusa me, federal parties...have refused comment.
Apparently, much of the crime involves bids on construction jobs, which curiously, mysteriously, always always end up being filled by Mafia-controlled companies.
But don't worry.
