Caspian Construction Inc., is suing the City of Winnipeg over a $5.2 million snow-dumping site along Kenaston Boulevard. In a statement of claim filed at Manitoba’s Court of Queen’s Bench last week, the company said the city has refused to transfer over the land even though there “is a valid and subsisting agreement between the parties” for the sale.
Caspian Construction currently being investigated by RCMP
None of the statements have been proven in court. The city has 20 days to file a statement of defence. In 2014, Winnipeg issued a tender for the sale of property of the former Kenaston snow dump, on Kenaston Boulevard south of Rothwell Road. Caspian Construction is currently being investigated by the RCMP for allegations of fraud and forgery involving the company’s construction of the new police headquarters downtown.
