An Interview with Democracy Watch's Duff Conacher
paul-martin-dc-fp.jpg

by Dru Oja Jay

Duff Conacher is the Coordinator of Democracy Watch, an Ottawa-based group that has advocated for "democratic reform, government accountability and corporate responsibility" for a decade.

What can we learn from Paul Martin's past record on ethics and democratic reform?

And so he is tied directly to the private interests of several corporations in Canada.
