The Tories law and order agenda…

…apparently doesn’t extend to all things:

Canada’s “problematic” track record of ignoring bribery offences by its citizens and corporations abroad has prompted the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to raise significant concerns in an unusually harsh report released Monday.

“Canada’s regime for enforcement remains problematic in important areas,” the Paris-based organization said in a statement, calling on Canada in its report to “urgently take such measures as may be necessary to prosecute its nationals for the bribery of foreign public officials.”

But then, Canadian business having the ability to bribe foreign officials with impugnity is an “advantage”.

    Interesting that right now Republicans aim to change US law and The American Chamber of Commerce hired former Attorney General Michael Mukasey to lobby Congress to amend the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which bars American companies from bribing foreign officials.
