Saadi Gaddafi, son of the infamous Libyan dictator, Muammar Gaddafi, is reported to have spent quite a wild couple of nights in Montreal back in 2008. He was here on business with SNC-Lavalin, you know, that company currently embroiled in a huge scandal unfolding in the Canadian Parliament.

Muammar Gaddafi, known for his many human rights violations during the Arab Spring, sent his son, Saadi, to Canada on a goodwill mission to convince SNC-Lavalin to steer major contracts to Libya. Apparently, SNC-Lavalin paid him $160 million (hence the present day scandal) along with financing his frequent visits to escorts and paying for his porn addiction to the tune of over $30,000.

TL;DR  SNC-Lavalin paid over $30,000 dollars for Gaddafi's son to get exotic dancers, escorts, and porn while he was in Montreal to accept contract bribes.

Not only did Gaddafi accept bribe money to bring contracts to Libya, but SNC-Lavalin also paid for Saadi Gaddafi's sordid desires. The company personally footed the bill so that he could enjoy nights out at Wanda's, private escorts, and when that wasn't enough, hotel porn.

They also paid for Garda, a private security firm in Montreal, to be his security detail. 

The RCMP originally revealed documents in 2013 that detailed the transactions that went on between the dictator's son and the all-powerful engineering firm.

Apparently, they paid Gaddafi $160 million in contract kickbacks and bribe money, some of which went to buy luxury yachts.

This isn't the first time SNC-Lavalin has been at the forefront of a scandal. In the 2000s, they allegedly rigged contracts during the Jacques-Cartier bridge repair. Oh, and in 2012, SNC-Lavalin was found paying $22 million in bribery and kickback money to the former CEO of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC)

Stay tuned for more news about SNC-Lavalin and the emerging scandal involving the office of the prime minister.
