    “Compensation “

    The lawyer believes that the call for tenders at the end of which Davie has been dismissed in 2011, has violated the competition Act and the canadian Constitution.

    He called, therefore, “within the meaning of the independence” of the government of canada to ensure that “justice” be done ” to the workers of Davie “. Remember that some 400 employees have been dismissed in the last weeks, because of lack of work.
