WINNIPEG – Another project built by Caspian Construction is under investigation by the RCMP.
Police have confirmed the Commercial Crimes Section of the RCMP is investigating the construction of the Canada Post mail processing plant at 1870 Wellington Ave..
The facility near Winnipeg’s airport was built by Caspian in 2010.
The same company was hired by the city to build the new Winnipeg Police Headquarters.
