Fairweather Canadians

Garth Turner irritates me sometimes. Politicans can follow their own hearts (or polling-based values of convenience) down south, but here in Canada party cohesion is what matters right now.

Nonetheless, when you're right, you're right. And today, Garth Turner is right about the 7,000 or so Lebanese who hitched a free ride out of a war zone on our tab, only to go right back to their real homes when the shooting stopped. Some of these people were the very ones criticizing Canada for its supposedly "slow response" in removing them from their home country.

Check also for a little nugget of comedy regarding Garth's ego:

"PMSH has said the Lebanon experience has underscored the need to review dual citizenship, and I appreciate his support."

I for one am glad that the Prime Minister has finally come out in support for Garth's five priorities for Canada. It's about damn time he got onboard the Garth Train.
