Media Advisory - Author of Why Mexicans Don't Drink Molson to discuss poor performance of Canadian businesses in international markets at Fraser Institute luncheon

    VANCOUVER, April 25 /CNW/ - Andrea Mandel-Campbell, journalist and
author, will discuss how Canadian regulations, state-sponsored cartels, and
foreign investment restrictions are hindering the performance of Canadian
businesses in international markets during a Fraser Institute luncheon in
Vancouver on Friday, April 27.
    In her recently released book, "Why Mexicans Don't Drink Molson,"
Mandel-Campbell links the absence of internationally competitive Canadian
companies to fundamentally flawed industrial policies that treat industry as
social utilities rather than wealth generators.
    Mandel-Campbell was the Mexico bureau chief for London's Financial Times
as well as the correspondent for Business Week magazine in Argentina. After 10
years of working as a journalist in Latin America, she returned to Canada in
2002 and was a feature writer at the National Post specializing in global
competitiveness issues. She has more recently published featured articles in
Maclean's magazine and The Walrus. In 2006, she was awarded a Media Fellowship
from the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada to travel to China and write a
series of articles for Maclean's on Canada-China business ties.
