UPAC watching Lac Megantic rebuild

Anti-corruption investigators are keeping an eye on the rebuilding of downtown Lac Megantic.

After last summer's devastating train derailment, the town was temporarily given special dispensation to grant infrastructure rebuilding contracts without putting them through the tendering process.

La Presse says in recent weeks, UPAC investigators visited Lac Megantic city hall and questioned one employee but left without taking any documents.

The mayor says her team is watching out for contractors hoping to fleece the stricken town as it rebuilds.
