This issue of the Monitor features a number of articles and new research coming out of the Corporate Mapping Project, an exciting joint initiative of the University of Victoria, the CCPA’s B.C. and Saskatchewan offices, and the Parkland Institute in Alberta that is making the links between the oil sector and political power in Canada. “People yearn for alternatives to business as usual,” write project co-directors Shannon Daub and Bill Carroll in their introductory article. “The great challenge lies in persuading citizens we need to reclaim our democracy from the corporate interests behind neoliberalism, including those who profit from polluting the atmosphere.”
