In 2017, with Public Services and Procurement Canada’s (PSPC) support, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) put in place a sole sourced lease with Pierre Guay, due to the location of the property, to help accommodate an increase in asylum seekers at the St-Bernard-de-Lacolle border crossing. When asked by La Presse in a media call received in October 2021, CBSA did not disclose the value of the lease, citing confidentiality reasons. Mr. Guay is characterised in a recent La Presse article as a supporter of the Liberal Party of Canada.

Though a number of agreements have been concluded with Mr. Guay (e.g., lease for office space, land lease, contracts for use of the hotel adjacent to the border crossing), the current media request pertains only to CBSA’s land lease. As PSPC negotiated the lease on behalf of the CBSA, it responded to the reporter’s queries.
