The GPG hosted a panel discussion on the ongoing situation in the DRC. Panelists included Luc Coté, Coauthor of the UN Project Mapping Report, Denis Tougas, Coordinator of the NGO Entreaide Missionaire, and Serge Blais, Program Officer for the NGO Développement et Paix. The presenters discussed the recent elections in the DRC and suggested that Canada should not recognize the new government due to electoral irregularities, and that Canada should consider passing legislation that would regulate the conduct of Canadian mining corporations acting in the DRC.
