Short video: Health authority contracts out to Marquise (but ends up with Compass)

A short video news clip on the purchase of  the Marquise Group by the transnational corporation Compass. An earlier news story noted  the "Vancouver Island Health Authority tried to dump its housekeeping contractor last month, but Compass Group Canada hung on to its $50-million, five-year deal with the health authority after buying Marquise Group, the company chosen to take over cleaning at several Island facilities. VIHA turfed its agreement with Compass because of the company's poor service. Under its watch, hospitals had regular infection outbreaks, failed housekeeping audits and damaging WorkSafe B.C. Inspections. "
