For the *Financial Post*, the recent actions of the Bolivian government in
nationalising a Canadian mine confirmed the country’s status as an “outlaw
nation”, according to an August 3 article.

But for less biased observers, the reality was a little different.
Responding to pressure from local indigenous communities the Bolivian
government confirmed on August 2 that it would expropriate the operations
of a Canadian-owned mining project.
