How it fits:
A Special issue of this magnitude could simply focus on the people calling the shots in Canada into one big issue. Some of these people are regional players (Irving for example is an Atlantic Canada Family). Because of the diversity of people (bankers, mining giants, politcal backers, public relations firms, lobbyists, media giants, oil execs) the artciles would focus on the people pushing Canadian policy agendas.
