  • Spoke about Fighting Foreign Corruption Act

    Mr. Speaker, the member is right that Canadian companies are amongst the largest and most prolific in the extractive industries in the world. A statistic I heard recently was that 50% of all the major mining companies in the world are actually Canadian-based, which I think is something to be very proud of. ... more

  • Spoke at a meeting of Foreign Affairs

    Mr. Chair, my understanding of the legislation is that we are raising the bar here. What I believe we heard from the officials and from the Canadian Bar Association is that under domestic law there is a range of offences and the penalties, from 5 to 14 years, depending on the offence. Bribing a judge is 14 years. ... more

  • Spoke at a meeting of Foreign Affairs

    At your conference, I had a discussion with a well-known legal counsel. I won't name him because he's not here to defend himself. He said that he thought it would put Canadian companies at a disadvantage. At the same conference I met another individual who was a university professor. Again, I won't name him because he's not here to defend himself. He said it's absolutely the right thing to do, and he thought we were on the right track and should continue doing it. I put the two of them together, and they had a bit of a discussion. ... more
