With another session of the Canadian Parliament starting up this week, Canadian resource executives will be casting an uneasy eye away from their mining developments and toward the halls of Ottawa. This is the session that could determine the future of Bill C-300, a private member’s bill that proposes to increase government oversight of Canadian mining and oil and gas companies operating in foreign countries, with penalties for those that run afoul of the good governance standards expected here at home.
This bill may provide a blueprint for corporate accountability in Britain too.
