Oh Shit, I can't go to Libya now....

What on earth has our government done...I just had to cancel my 3-week vacation in Libya...
Canadian travellers have been told they're not welcome in Libya, in an apparent reprisal for Canada's near tongue-lashing of Moammar Gadhafi.

Mr. Gadhafi cancelled a planned stopover in Newfoundland last month after the Harper government made public its intention to scold the Libyan Leader over the hero's welcome Libya gave a man convicted in the Lockerbie bombing.

Since then, Mr. Gadhafi has made clear to officials within Libya's travel documentation offices that no visas are to be granted to Canadians wanting to enter the country.

LOL, fricking funny.

I have worked off Libya for over a year onboard the offshore supply vessels, every 6 weeks we crew change in Malta. Wonder why?

I am eagerly awaiting another gem from the Liberal Party how our international reputation is shrinking as a result.

Funny post btw

If this is not praise for Harper's foreign policy I don't know what is.

I'm sorry for those, who were supposed to spend their holidays in this destination. But anyway there are much better places to choose for a vacation, so I think, it's no big deal. But for sure it doesn't make the international relations any better and it's a result of despotic overreacting. Jay

I hear North Korea's nice this time of year. If you prefer a warmer climate, you could try Burma or Somalia.
