Letter to Minister Ng: remedy harm caused by EDC-financed dam in Colombia

Communities devastated by the Hidroituango dam in Colombia continue to seek accountability from the Canadian government, which financed the project through its export bank. In this letter to the trade minister, we call on Ottawa to ensure that the bank makes reparations and no longer supports such damaging projects.
