World Bank and SNC Lavalin

This weekend, some anonymous activists posed as representatives of Canadian engineering megafirm SNC Lavalin and the World Bank, passing out pamphlets like these, and promoting internships and employment opportunities. Most of their target audience were students from McGill (arguably among Canada's most prestigious and empire-oriented universities), specifically MBA students who were attending a conference featuring speakers from the World Bank, SNC Lavalin, and Alcan, among others. The theatrical intervention, which contrasted/complemented the more traditional protest denouncing the World Bank, was a success, or so I hear.
