This is an old story, but worth bringing public again (thanks to CBL reader Cascadian)
Mo Strong uses institutions to reward friends and manipulate people.
He did this for Paul Martin with Canada Steamship. There have been rumors that he was responsible for JJ Chretien getting a seven figure contract with the Iranian Oil Ministry after leaving the PMs job.
He did this for David Suzuki's daughter - getting her a special advisory position for the UN Secretary General.
I'm not going to speculate of all the implications of this. The BT audience has far greater imagination (and research capability) than does this simple blue lemon.
