Get Moving Before It's Too Late
Same Old Road to Hell
by JOAN ROELOFS

The genesis for Nikolas Barry-Shaw and Dru Oja Jay’s book, Paved with 
Good Intentions: Canada’s Development NGOs from Idealism to Imperialism 
(Fernwood Publishing, 2012), was the discovery that Canadian development 
non-governmental organizations (NGOs), even those considered 
progressive, aided in the 2004 coup to overthrow Aristide in Haiti. They 
gave resources to his opponents, and continued to demonize Aristide and 
his grassroots movement, Lavalas. The authors, members of Haiti Action 
Montreal (linked with Canada Haiti action network), were especially 
shocked at the stance of Alternatives, a Montreal based group, and began 
to question the role of NGOs in general.
