A former Transport Quebec engineer says he was routinely bribed by construction and engineering firms in exchange for help with lucrative government contracts.
Guy Hamel told the Charbonneau Commission today the gifts and favours were for favourable decisions from his position on a selection committee for government contracts.
He also served as a project manager for provincial works projects.
The now-retired Hamel says he received cruises, golf trips, golf clubs, a ski trip, enevelopes full of cash and even a new retaining wall for his home.
The gifts began around 1990 but Hamel says he was never reprimanded for taking the gifts.
At one point, a superior casually mentioned to him in a hallway that he needed to "calm down.''
