Irving Shipyard Asks for High Court Ruling
According to a June 23 report from the Canadian Press, Irving Shipbuilding, the company that lost a multibillion-dollar submarine maintenance contract, is asking the Supreme Court of Canada to allow its legal challenge of the deal to proceed. When the maintenance contract was awarded in 2007 to a West Coast firm, Irving sought a judicial review. But the Federal Court of Appeal ruled the shipbuilder did not have standing to ask for such a review based on suspicions there was bias involved.
