BNP is identified as a "French bank" but it is actually controlled by Paul Desmarais, the Canadian plutocrat who also controls Total, the "French" oil company that was given development rights to 25% of Iraq's oil reserves, provided Saddam remained in power.

Total's CEO is Desmarais' son, who is married to the daughter of Jean-Paul Chretien, the Canadian Prime Minster before the war, who strongly supported Saddam in that conflict.

The New Canadian Prime Minister, Paul Martin, is a long time associate of Desmarais. Desmarais gave Martin his first important job in the 1970s and has promoted his career ever since, to such an extent that Martin can be considered a Desmarais lackey.

Also employed by Desmarais, Maurice Strong, who founded a business in the 1990s called Cordex, in which Paul Martin was a partner. This company recieved $1 million in funding from Tongsun Park, who, while under investigation, admitted the money came from Saddam.

After this admission, Strong stepped down from his position as advisor to Kofi Annan.

So let's add Canadaian Prime Minister Paul Martin to the list of people who must go (perhaps to jail).
