Canada Post is requesting access to documents seized by Winnipeg RCMP in a fraud investigation into the company it paid to build a mail processing plant in the city.
The Crown corporation filed a notice of application with the Court of Queen’s Bench in Winnipeg on Thursday to get documents seized from Caspian Construction relating to the project, which was completed in 2010.
A Canada Post spokesperson said the corporation wants to use the documents “to analyze and quantify any money that may be owing to the Corporation in relation to the construction of the Winnipeg Mail Processing Plant.”
“Canada Post was first contacted by the RCMP on Feb. 2, 2016, regarding their investigation and continues to co-operate fully,” the spokesperson said. “As this remains an ongoing police investigation, it would be inappropriate to comment further.”
