“Ottawa makes it harder for bidders to challenge national security exceptions” by Steven Chase and Robert Fife, The Globe and Mail

The Globe and Mail quotes Toronto/Ottawa lawyer, Peter Mantas, in an article about how the Canadian government is making it harder for bidders to challenge  national security exceptions.

"Critics say the changes will make it impossible to challenge before the CITT procurement decisions that involve a national security exception, even if there are grounds to question whether it’s justified. Peter Mantas, a lawyer at Fasken who has represented firms before the tribunal, said the exception has even been used to skirt normal competitive bidding rules for office printers”.
