- Canadian-owned Barrick Gold, the world's largest gold producer, is exploring, building and operating huge, open-pit gold mines on nearly every continent on the planet. On May 2, 2007, CorpWatch in the US published a report detaiing the operations of Barrick gold in nine different countries, focusing on the efforts on the part of the communities to seek justice from this powerful multinational.

Are Canadians truly nothing more than a docile labour force to serve the foreign 'resource extraction' industries? Is that the true raison d'etre of the puppet corporation called 'Canada'? An 'industry' that does not own what it takes, but extracts in haste ahead of the UN and Supreme Court judgments that clarify the laws of Indigenous Rights? Is that "the true north strong and free" that we defend? Do we care?
