What Is It With Barrick Gold?
When Bryan Mulroney left politics he took a spot on the board of Barrick Gold. So, too, did George H.W. Bush after he failed to win a second term as president. Now it's John Baird who has a date with Barrick destiny, apparently as an "adviser." Baird will be joined by Newt Gingrich, also appointed to Barrick's international advisory board.
It's not exactly a demanding job. Barrick says the international advisory board meets "about once a year."
The job probably won't put Baird on Easy Street but he might try picking up a few of Pam Wallin's former directorships to help make ends meet.
