It's not like this hasn't happened before: Accenture exists because Enron had to get dismantled. Accenture is only part of what Enron was, but is a massive company. At some point, if the company is too corrupt to allow to continue, it needs to be taken down, and the people responsible jailed.


Should the PM or folks in the PMO be responsible as well here, they should also be jailed (not likely though; I'll settle for voted out in October).


I have no love loss for Trudeau but why is everyone assuming that he is guilty and the victim is WR? Seems to me like she didn't have any issue with SNL until she was demoted.

Wasn't it said on another thread innocent until proven guilty?

The charges and allegations of fraud and corruption with this particular entity go back so far it's very difficult to imagine a scenario where this isn't a deeply corrupt organization. In fact, they have a former CEO and another VP who have pleaded guilty to fraud charges in recent history. The Libya case is before the courts, where a number of employees are facing charges. More recently, they have a VP who pleaded guilty to violating Canada's election financing laws (getting employees to donate to the Liberal Party of Canada and then reimbursing them to evade corporate restrictions on political contributions).

^ So each of the 10K that will get fired are responsible for the actions of their execs? 


What does this have to do with anything? We're talking about a deeply corrupt entity. Many of the employees are in on the gig and have likely benefited greatly from the alleged fraud and bribes paid. 


What about the retirees who may lose some or all of their pensions? 


Look, no company is too big to fail. Arthur Anderson was rightfully allowed to fail. Pretty sure accountants in the USA are doing fine. 


We cannot allow rampant fraud and corruption in our society. Corruption is the fastest road to becoming a backwater rogue state.
