It's will of the people against a military regime. A military regime that is, apparently, getting six million dollars worth of help from a Canadian lobbying firm.
Canadians have watched for months the scenes from pro-democracy protests across the world in Sudan. They are inspiring, sometimes terrifying, and above all they are courageous. But the Canadian link to this revolution is not a positive one, and it may be breaking sanctions. So why is a Montreal-based firm offering to help polish the image of, and facilitate military deals for, a regime that has seen hundreds of protesters massacred? What kind of regulations and laws govern this kind of contract? How unusual is this kind of deal? And what comes next?
