A recent article by Vancouver writer Chris Spanos revealed that a Canadian company, SNC-Lavalin Group , is supplying bullets to U.S. Occupation forces in Iraq.

SNC-Lavalin has offices in Vancouver and is one of the contractors bidding on the RAV rapid transit line being built by translink.

A recent report in the Lancet medical journal concludes that there has been an excess of 100,000 civilian deaths in Iraq since the U.S. invasion. The report's author stated that "Most individuals reportedly killed by coalition forces were women and children." It appears that SNC - Lavalin's bullets will be used to continue these blatant violations of international law.

Should TransLink be doing business with a company that is complicit in International War Crimes?
