Now I don't know specifically who is on the take, but I have to consider Canadas history and what I know, and assume we have some U.S politicians on the payroll. If so, is it collusion? And, should there be consequences for the guy on the take or Canada for bribing them? I found this for reference: Foreign Corrupt Practices Act or FCPA. It seems to fall under your Justice Department Foreign Corrupt Practices Act | CRIMINAL-FRAUD | Department of Justice The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended, 15 U.S.C. §§ 78dd-1, et seq. ("FCPA"), was enacted for the purpose of making it unlawful for certain classes of persons and entities to make payments to foreign government officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business. Specifically, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA prohibit the willful use of the mails or any means of instrumentality of interstate commerce corruptly in furtherance of any offer, payment, promise to pay, or authorization of the payment of money or anything of value to any person, while knowing that all or a portion of such money or thing of value will be offered, given or promised, directly or indirectly, to a foreign official to influence the foreign official in his or her official capacity, induce the foreign official to do or omit to do an act in violation of his or her lawful duty, or to secure any improper advantage in order to assist in obtaining or retaining business for or with, or directing business to, any person.
