Saddam invested one million dollars in Paul Martin-owned Cordex by Judi McLeod, Canadafreepress.com Friday, April 22, 2005
The Canadian company that Saddam Hussein invested a million dollars in belonged to the Prime Minister of Canada, canadafreepress.com has discovered.
Cordex Petroleum Inc., launched with Saddams million by Prime Minister Paul Martins mentor Maurice Strongs son Fred Strong, is listed among Martins assets to the Federal Ethics committee on November 4, 2003.
Among Martins Public Declaration of Declarable Assets are: "The Canada Steamship Lines Group Inc. (Montreal, Canada) 100 percent owned"; "Canada Steamship Lines Inc. (Montreal, Canada) 100 percent owned"Cordex Petroleums Inc. (Alberta, Canada) 4.6 percent owned by the CSL Group Inc."

"Sold! to Mr. Saddam Hussein of Iraq..."
"Please remember, all sales are 'AS IS', with no warranty of any kind, implicit or explicit..."
According to the todays New York Sun, "the next chapter in the United Nations crisis may erupt over U.N. investigator Paul Volckers membership on the board of one of Canadas biggest companies, Power Corporation, since a past president of the firm, Canadian tycoon Maurice Strong, is now tied to the oil-for-food scandal."
The missing facts are: Not only are Volcker and Strong hooked with the ties that bind to Power Corporation Inc., a company under investigation in the oil-for-food scandal, Prime Minister Paul Martin was launched into the business world with Canadian Steamship Lines by Paul Desmaraiss Power Corporation Inc. and his predecessor Jean Chretiens daughter, France is married to Paul Desmarais son, Andre Desmarais.
Gee... Guess we have the reason why Martin was so opposed to the war.
I would love to see a flow chart on this. Would be quite the spider web.
I can't wait for the south park episode...
"Hey, relax guy."
There is always a tide that washes all the filth away. Is GWB such a tide?
...& the Ketchup couple owned a chunk of BNP, the oil-for-palaces bank...small world...
FReepers suspected this all along of course.
Was this mentioned in Martin's speech last night?
And why the libs are desperate to keep John Bolton away from the UN......
Gee .. that sounds like an Oil Company name
Hmmmm.... Has Al Frankin discussed this on his radio show yet?
Paul Martin is a loathsome crook
worse than Chretien
because he is smoother and more successful
but Paul Martin did not own Cordex
he owned shares in Cordex.
There is a slight difference
and giving the article such a title
brings discredit to "Canada Free Press"
which has produced some valuable stories.
I believe they said during the Committee hearing .. it was something about not wanting him to reform and change the UN
WHOA ,...now we need to make charts ,...I knew this would be a CAN OF WORMS
This is the first time I've ever heard reference to Maurice Strong in a news article. I'm suprised that this guy who is supposed to be such a mover and shaker in the world scene isn't mentioned more often. Am I just not looking in the right place.
*snort* They are scared sh**less
Please let me know if you want on/off the Adscam ping list.
Well .. it could explain why Senator Joe "Hey Boss" Biden was screaming and yelling like a Raving Lunatic
LOL. If you don't spend much time in slime, looking under rocks, or with Bill Clinton, you may not have heard of him before.
He is Canada Inc.
Can't make this stuff up. Amazing...
"Paul Martin is a loathsome crook
worse than Chretien"
Unlike Martin, Chretien did not get rich on his way to the top that's for sure.
I like Martin better than Chretien. Chretien was a dyed-in-the-wool anti-American of the lefty type. His comments about 9/11, his failure to appear with Blair at Bush's post-9/11 speech, his globalist sentiments. Martin's disputes with us don't seem to be ideological.
Over the years I've read many Canadian commentaries very laudatory of trans-national institutions and global governance. From below the feelings were ideological, but the inspiration came from above where profit was the motive.
I don't know about that Shermy.
The Cretch just bought a nice house in Ottawa for $1.9 Million.
Not chump change exactly. Pretty good for someone who never earned more than $150,000/year.
This guy's bio is worse than corrupt, it's a disgrace: he's a paid whore who has made his fortune shilling and arranging back-room deals for commie dictators across the globe.
No wonder I've never heard of him. The only thing that I know about canada is that their funniest comedians move to the USA and make millions of dollars in the movie and TV industries.
Other people have mentioned Maurice Strong as a representative of the anti-christ- it was discussed a few days ago in the thread about the new Pope's views on the subject. Globalist, working behind the scenes, will come declaring peace, etc. This is the first time i've heard of him with his fingers pulling the strings on a multinational deal of secret intrigue. It also calls into question the reasoning behind canada's stance on the most recent gulf war.
What a bunch of scums. These are the same people who would trash the U.S. for "starving children", or going to war with Iraq "for oil" when they are the ones involved in STARVING CHILDREN and OIL MONEY for their own personal gains.
You would think that Mickey Moore would already have a "documentary" (snicker) film in the can about the misdeeds of these rich greedy capitalist pigs.
Thank you for moving this article to "Breaking News."
It sure didn't make sense to many of us to turn our backs when our allies could have used our help, or at least our moral support.
This guy makes Kofi look good by comparison.
Just wait till Nelson Eddy hears about this.
To horse, Nelson!
Why not? Saddam Hussein is a key ally of Canada, France and Germany.
Hopefully this story will grow some legs.

Ran with fact box "The following is the declaration of assets made by Paul Martin to the federal ethics counsellor.", which has been appended to the story.
You gotta love the question mark (?) following "Barbados."
"We think Marbulk Shipping is in Barbados but we're not positive! Don't hold us to it!"
No. Paul Desmarais is Canada Inc.
Looney-Tunes Maurice Strong is 'small potatos' in comparison.
Gee .. that sounds like an Oil Company name.
So, you won't believe Martin if he says it a Pet Store/Flooring business?
I'm going to learn more about these Canuck politix.
