Northern Construction and tax offences.
Northern Construction is the real owner of the land and the real quarry proponent. We are not impressed by the name Northern Construction any more than Scotian Materials. We are particularly unimpressed that Northern Construction and one of the family owners were convicted of tax offences which resulted from creating false receipts in the construction business. The media reported that 15 RCMP officers “swooped down” on the company along with CRA auditors. Daniel Bélanger plead guilty to 12 of the total 37 counts and was sentenced to pay $78,526.04. His charges related to the payroll tax fraud portion of the charges. Other charges related to HST and Corporate Tax. The fine was paid in full the day it was ordered. This case also notes the owners didn’t show up for the hearing that was held in Quebec, and that they had opened a business number in Quebec but were never awarded any contracts. The charges also resulted from creation of false invoices. Please read the section on Rob MacPherson and P3 consulting to see how this might be extremely relevant.
