Canadians may think of themselves as peace-loving, but we speak to a woman who thinks we're avid consumers of war. She says you can see it in our pension plans and even our jewelry. Her new book, Damned Nations: Greed, Guns, Armies and Aid
looks at what happens when greed and guns get in the way of providing aid.
