Biography :

Cordo is the Black Orchestra’s first director. Before that, he was a civil servant working at the Canadian Department of National Defence. As early as the 1960s he became aware of the Consortium’s illicit operations and of the danger they posed to Western democracies. He decided to develop an organization to counter the Consortium’s plans. Patiently, he developed a network of people and got the necessary funding to carry out his dream.
