Rona Ambrose was a Member of the Trilateral Commission as reported in Vancouver's Georgia Straight, August 24, 2006.
Well shucks who knew. The Trilateral Commission is the public face of the those other secret societies of the corporatist ruling class like the Bilderbergers and the Davos Forum.
It is the original source for George Bush Senior's announcement of the New World Order.
Holly Sklar's book remains one of the best on the Trilateral Commission and its importance in setting the agenda for Globalization, without falling into the tinfoil hat conspiracy theories that abound around ruling class institutions like these--as I wrote in my article, Conspiracy Theory or Ruling Class Studies
For Canadians our concern has to be that the Trilateralists promote deep integration, starting with the original Mulroney Reagan FTA, followed by NAFTA, evolving into a continental alliance, or North American Union, including shared monetary standards.
