It's time for Canada to lead on the world stage...

My latest article on
The Conservative Party Platform — or, should I say, Stephen Harper's Low-Tax Plan for Jobs and Economic Growth — has very little to say about foreign policy. Sure, Harper wants a free-trade deal with India and a free-trade deal with the European Union. Both good ideas, But they've been in the works for some time now.

But search for the word “foreign” in the platform and all you will find are foreign credentials, foreign offenders, foreign workers, foreign criminals, and foreign markets.
Please go and read the whole article...why shouldn't we play a leading role in the world?

Let me get this: you are gay -- this we know since thirty years -- and ... conservative? Am I missing something. You are a socialist de souche as many of us are ready to testify.

We all remember those ferocious debates in the office when you defied the Reaganites -- with a certain nobility, I must say. Your staunch leftism was an example to us all in a country that was abandoning itself to borrow and spend Tory mania.

Glenn P, your great right wing GOP interlocutor, has abandoned the US, left his beloved GOP, moved to Victoria, married a Canadian, taken Canadian citizenship, learned French, and become ... a Bolshevik!

Do we understand that you have changed places? Is this some strange morphing in the 11th dimension?

What do I tell my children?

If you asked someone who has never heard of Harper or the Conservative Party to watch the debate, they would definitely think that Harper is a one-issue-candidate. "Economy, Economy, Economy" is all I ever hear him say. Absolutely nil in terms of any substantial social policy. Conservatives used to be big thinkers once upon a time back in the 1860s, when they used to garner far above 50% of the popular vote. Conservatives were institution-builders and bold policy-makers. Today they're just a brand name only interested in gaining power for the sake of being in power.

Gee, it's hard to believe that Glenn is now on the left...

Canada under the Cons have always supported Israel - how do you think they lost the seat at UN. The USA is abandoning Israel under Obama, yet Canada has supported Israel - even though the world does not agree.

I am quite sure the LIEberals would not be as favorable - they support China and human rights violations openly.
