Listed among Martin’s Public Declaration of Declarable Assets submitted to the Federal Ethics Committee are his 100 percent ownership of both Canada Steamship Lines and Canada Steamship Lines Group Inc., which owns 4.6 percent of Cordex Petroleums Inc.

Martin’s mentor and senior aide to UN Secretary Kofi Annan admitted on Thursday that Tongsun Park, the Korean accused by U.S. federal authorities of illegally acting as an Iraqi agent, invested in Cordex, the company he owned with his son in 1997.

Keep an eye on this Maurice Strong, one of Kofi's buds.

Maurice Strong is a senior advisor to United Nations' Secretary General Kofi Annan. Annan has appointed Strong to lead U.N. reforms, positioning him to be the next U.N. Secretary General.

Riiiiiiiiiight...Cause Paul Martin and Jean Chretien are not quite evil enough. They're semi-evil, They're quasi-evil, They're the margarine of evil, They're the diet coke of evil, just one calorie, not "evil" enough...I've been a frickin' evil doctor for 30 frickin' years, OK? Cut me some "frickin'" slack.
