This podcast presents the fourth and last panel recorded at the “Walking the Talk: Human Rights Abroad” conference held September 27th at the House of Commons. For this portion of the event, discussion focused on how to take action towards corporate accountability through new legislation – namely, NDP International Trade Critic Peter Julian’s proposed Bill C-354. Julian himself moderated the panel, which featured Nick Milanovic of Carleton University’s Department of Law, Terry Collingsworth, a labour and human rights attorney in Washington DC, and Mark Rowlinson of the United Steelworkers’ Canadian National Office legal department. After hearing from these speakers, the discussion grew to include Liberal MP John McKay and Bill C-300 on corporate accountability for mining, oil and gas corporations in developing countries (based on the original Private Member’s Bill C-565, proposed by now-retired NDP MP Alexa McDonough). This recording includes the majority of a question and answer period which followed the panel discussion.

Nick Milanovic, Adjunct Research Professor, Department of Law at Carleton University

Mark Rowlinson, Counsel, United Steelworkers’ Canadian National Office legal department
