Oh, Canada! We stand on guard for dictators.
So before we all get up on our high horses (Ignatieff) and proclaim to be on higher ground than the other , read a fucking book or look up facts on the interweb. You may just find that the politician you stand behind stands behind some pretty awful people.
And while we are on the topic, the reason that Canada supports Gaddafi in the first place is because our (former national, taxpayer supported) Petro-Canada has been doing business with that lizard for a long time. That (now private) corporation belongs to Sun Corp, Canada's largest oil producer, based in Calgary, Alberta. Stephen Harper's riding is in Calgary.
Am I making sense here?
