Democracy à la Maude

Patricia Kearns
1998 | 1 h 1 min
Maude Barlow is a crusading warrior for social justice and the leader of Canada’s largest citizens’ rights group, the Council of Canadians. This feature film portrays Barlow’s progress from young Ottawa housewife, quietly reading Germaine Greer alone at home, to outspoken activist, locking horns with such formidable opponents as media magnate Conrad Black and Thomas D’Aquino of the Business Council on National Issues. On the front lines in the battle against the Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the Multilateral Agreement on Investment (MAI), Barlow cautions against “the rise of corporate rule”, arguing that such agreements enhance the international mobility of corporations at the expense of Canadian social programs and jobs.
