Now this is interesting

The Paul Martin-Power Corp-Oil-for-food connection just got a bit more interesting:

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 Saddam’s million by Prime Minister Paul Martin’s mentor Maurice Strong’s son Fred Strong, is listed among Martin’s assets to the Federal Ethics committee on November 4, 2003.

Among Martin’s 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."

UK Times Online has a corroborates here:
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,3-1579932,00.html

"Mr Volcker has served as a paid adviser to Power Corporation of Canada, a holding company whose Belgian partner, Groupe Bruxelles Lambert, is said to be the largest single shareholder in Total SA, the oil giant that traded in Iraqi crude under the Oil-for-Food programme.

The UN had dismissed the connection as irrelevant but new information emerged yesterday linking Power Corporation to the inquiry. Maurice Strong, the Canadian tycoon who used to be its president, admitted this week that a company with which he was associated had received an investment from a North Korean-born businessman who has been charged in America for acting as an unregistered foreign agent for Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.

Mr Strong, who stepped aside on Wednesday as the UN envoy to North Korea, identified the company as Cordex Petroleums, an oil firm whose owners include Paul Martin, the Canadian Prime Minister and Mr Strong’s close friend.

When Mr Strong, one of Cordex’s major shareholders, was the president of Power Corporation, he hired Mr Martin, the future Prime Minister, as his personal assistant.

Mr Martin holds his Cordex stake through a company called CSL Group"
