Rebuilding the Canadian Economy in the post-Covid Era: Supply Management, Corruption and Russia

Magnitsky Law initiator

Sergei Magnitsky was a 37-year-old tax lawyer and auditor, married, having two of the most adorable children when he was brutally beaten to death in a cold Russian jail cell on November 9, 2010 – all because he uncovered a $230 billion money laundering scheme – orchestrated by the same ruthless dictator currently holding the global economy hostage, Vladimir Putin.

What his former client Bill Browder can’t understand is why countries like Canada let Putin and his thugs hide their stolen money here. A point underscored by Justice Austin Cullen last week when he tabled his report in Victoria, calling urgently for a new anti-money-laundering czar.

Browder knows the only way to destabilize Putin is to take away his power – power that comes from the billions stolen from Russian citizens.

So, its frustrating for Browder to witness a country like Canada – that tracks and settles $539 billion worth of financial data sets each and every day – not having the political hutzpah to bring these thugs to trial especially with what’s happening in Ukraine.

Who better to have a conversation about measuring the intensity of political will in a war zone, than with someone who’s been to war both as an award-winning journalist and a politician, the Hon. Peter Kent.
