I've been way too busy packing up my house to bother blogging this past week or so. Sure there have been a few issues worth commenting on, like the new entrants to the PC Alberta Leadership Race or Garth Turner's nomination race in Halton, Ontario, but I haven't really been motivated enough to sit down and type something out.
I read something last night, though, that absolutely infuriated me.
When I read, in this CBC article, that Etobicoke Centre (read: Toronto) Liberal MP Borys Wrzesnewskyj is "ashamed to be Canadian", I was absolutely beside myself.
This man, along with the other MPs on the trip, BQ MP Maria Mourani and NDP MP Peggy Nash, have repeatedly talked about "Israel's crimes against humanity" and that PM Harper is "condoning human massacres".
ARE THESE PEOPLE FOR REAL?
They've been in the Middle East for a few days and suddenly they're experts on what has gone on in the last month or so?
Honestly, its as though they believe that only one side of the story deserves to be heard and, since the tories are with Israel, they have to be against them.
What kind of weak-minded individuals make up their mind with only half (if even that much) of the facts???
William does a much more succinct and thorough job of pointing out the absurdity of the statements being made by the opposition on this trip.
I, for one, am simply agog.
I am NOT, however, embarassed to be a Canadian. If anything, I am proud that Canada has finally removed the fence post that was lodged firmly in our asses and chosen to stand with the only historically democratic nation in the Middle East.
I'm embarassed that people like Borys Wrzesnewskyj get elected to Parliament.
