Canada's Private Sector Eyes Haiti Reconstruction

by Van Ferrier

On March 31, 2010, the United Nations hosts a major conference in New York to plan and coordinate reconstruction in Haiti. It is still unclear what role Canada played in the ouster of democratically elected President Jean Bertrand Aristide in 2004—an act that paved the way for foreign multinationals to take up shop in Haiti, including Canadian sweatshops and mining companies.

Van Ferrier is a Montreal-based journalist.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
