Paving companies avoid competition, company boss tells Charbonneau

Paving company boss Serge Daunais testifies before the Charbonneau Commission.

More confirmation at the Charbonneau Commission today of the existence of collusion between paving companies.

At first, Serge Daunais, the directore of Pavages Maska, appeared reluctant to tell the Commission's hearings there was collusion, preferring to use words like "respect" or "friendly agreements".

Then, when pressed by Justice France Charbonneau, Daunais admitted there was collusion — going on to say that if collusion didn't exist, small companies like his would die out.

Daunais also admitted that he had intimidated a competitor — "passed a message", as he put it — who had obtained a contract on "his" turf.
