On Parliament Hill, NDP foreign affairs critic Heather McPherson and NDP house leader Peter Julian discuss proposals to improve accountability for Canadian corporations at home and abroad. Both MPs have private member’s bills aimed at providing greater oversight and regulation of corporations that violate human rights and environmental protections. They are joined by Francisco Von Hildebrand, president of Gaia Amazonas, a Colombian environmental organization that is raising concerns about the role Canadian companies play in destabilizing conservation efforts in the Amazon. Also taking part are Chela Román Miraña, an Indigenous leader from the Colombian Amazon, and Gerardo Macuna Miraña, a leader of the Yaigojé Apaporis territory.
