    Stephen Harper joins legal firm that hired Newt Gingrich, Jean Chretien

    Stephen Harper ready to cash in with controversial legal firm that hired Newt Gingrich, Jean Chretien

    Former Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper apparently isn’t satisfied with having destroyed a lot of wonderful and important things in Canada. Now he has signed on with Dentons, the world’s largest elite law firm, to spread his viewpoints around the globe.

    Dentons proudly announced Monday that Harper — who does not have a legal degree — and his new consulting company will work from its Calgary office.

    ..snip..The firm surprised the legal and business worlds by forming a partnership with a huge Chinese firm closely tied to the Communist Party. It isn’t fussy about which companies it represents in litigation either. It works for Wal-Mart, Monsanto, Citigroup, Duke Energy, Bank of America, Barclay’s Bank, Wells Fargo and others.

    The firm also has a penchant for buying former politicians. Former Liberal PM Jean Chretien and former Manitoba Premier Gary Doer are also on the Dentons payroll, as is former Harper Cabinet Minister James Moore. Last year, Dentons snapped up controversial U.S. former politicians Newt Gingrich.
