I am personally ashamed of my country as I travel internationally. In a world calling out for new models of justice, conflict resolution and environmental stewardship, Canada could be playing such a powerful role as it has done in the past. Stephen Harper with a majority frightens me.Yes, isn't it a shame that Canada has manifested some stones and doesn't automatically go with the Israel-loathing flow such that it was the first to stand up tall and tell the Durban II racists to take a hike? Things were ever so much better back in the days of Jean Chretien's "honest brokerage," eh Maude?
Funny thing, that pride. I, for one, have never been prouder to be a Canuck.
