Moral Compass: Liberal Party is too arrogant

Canada to boycott Iran at UN

Canada is boycotting a United Nations speech by Iran's incendiary president, with Prime Minister Stephen Harper saying the move is a rebuke of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's anti-Semitism and abysmal human rights record.

"There are times when things are being said in this world that it is important that countries that have a moral compass stand up, make their views known," Harper

 While Canada pledged to boycott Ahmadinejad's speech last night, a number of other countries walked out in the middle of the speech, leaving the majority of seats empty in the UN General Assembly.

Should U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice join Cannon and walk out when Ahmadinejad speaks?

Total Votes: 43,468

  Why are the Liberals polling 29% Nationally and Michael Ignatieff has a leadership score of 54?

  • Michael Ignatieff: 20%
  • Jack Layton: 15%
I question, however, why Stephen Harper has refused to take action in Canada to hold the Iranian regime to account.

Mr. Ignatieff said Canada cannot tolerate Holocaust deniers and anti-Semitism, but argued that Mr. Harper should be at the UN to register the government’s unhappiness in person.

“We have a very, very serious problem with this relationship and I don’t think I’m going to be able to fix it until I become the prime minister.”-Michael Ignatieff
