On Jan. 18, Embassy published an article from the Office of the Extractive Sector CSR Counsellor (RE: "Lessons learned from CSR counsellor") to update Canadians on the first two years of counsellor Marketa Evans' office's activities.

This activist was prominent in community opposition to the operations of Vancouver-based Fortuna Silver Mines Inc.
