Mr. Martin became sole owner of Canada
Steamship Lines the year he entered politics,
1988. He became finance minister in 1993.

Politicians regularly have business ties but once
in cabinet, they place their assets in a blind
trust. This is meant to insulate them from
conflicts of interest.

From its website,"Canada Steamship Lines can trace
its history to 1845 when, as a river-boat company on the
mighty St. Lawrence, it began delivering the materials its
customers would need to build a nation. From those
early beginnings, Canada Steamship Lines steadily
rose to a position of prominence in the North American
marine industry. The pursuit of innovation strengthened
that position throughout the 20th century."
