For Immediate Release
Regina, Saskatchewan – The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) is enraged after learning Canpotex has made a Potash sale to Burma (Myanmar). GPS Leader Victor Lau can’t believe this is happening. “Why has Canpotex done this?” asks Lau. “Yes there have been some democratic reforms in Burma in recent months, and Canada has dropped economic sanctions against the military regime. But it is far too soon to be doing business with a government whose rule is soaked in blood. We have no guarantees that the democratic reforms will continue in Burma – they could end tomorrow.” Lau thinks Canpotex should have at least waited until there was a democratic transfer of power in Burma, when the military regime is no longer in power.
