Standing up for Canada

I wonder how long it will take for the Liberal Party of Canada or its leader, Michael Ignatieff, to stand up for Canada and respond to the slanderous allegations by Venezuela’s ambassador to the Organization of American States, Roy Chaderton Matos, that Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan are guilty of torture and assassinations.

I doubt we’ll hear any defence of Canada from Jack Layton or the New Democrats as Hugo Chavez and his government are darlings of the Canadian left. And socialists tend to owe their loyalties more to international movements than to their own nation. We saw this clearly demonstrated a few weeks ago at Copenhagen. Hugo Chavez is one of the more vocal leaders of international socialism so he’ll get no more that a tepid rebuke—if that—from the Dippers.

The Canadian left are so enthralled by leaders like the Castro brothers and Hugo Chavez. Whatever these men say or do is excused. No matter how repressive their regimes are, we are told how much better off their people are than they were before.

Chavez and the Castros are socialists after all and must, by definition, rule over countries that but for the wicked Americans would be paradises. No great stampede from international socialists to immigrate to these enlightened nations though.

  1. One can not criticize Uncle Fidel or little flake Trudeau might cry.

  2. It's not going to happen because they are joined at the hip by the internationalist socialist cabal they belong to. (real conservative)

  3. Net migration rate -0.84 migrant(s)/1,000 populati [116th of 225]

    Looks as if there are not a lot of folks migrating to Chavez Land.

    = 20 Canada: 5.62 migrant(s)/1,000 populati 2008

    And we welcome the world!

  4. The Liberals won't say a word in defence of our boys. After all they accused the Generals of war crimes.

    Dosanj, Rae and Iggy will eat their words.

  5. I keep remembering what a good friendship Trudeau and Castro maintained over the years.

    Liberals defending Canada?...I wouldn't hold my breath.

  6. keep remembering what a good friendship Trudeau and Castro maintained over the years.

    Liberals defending Canada?...I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Leeky Sweek, Trudeau admired the way Castro ran his country and wished to do the same to canada.

    liberals defending Canada-you are correct, don't hold your breath because they never will.

  7. If you have a good birth rate you don't need immigration or a minimal amount. Liberalism has destroyed the birth rate in Canada. Immigration brings its own problems along with any benefits it may have. (real conservative)

  8. real conservative,

    Canada is underpopulated by most measures. Immigration would remain an important element in our growth strategy even with a more robust growth rate.

    Though, I'd agree, your situation in the U.S. is quite different: higher birth rate and already large population.
