"Let me just say this: living as we do, in a time when some in the political arena do not hesitate before throwing the most serious of allegations at our men and women in uniform, based on the most flimsy of evidence, remember that Canadians from coast to coast to coast are proud of you and stand behind you, and I am proud of you, and I stand beside you."-PM Stephen Harper
Red Cross rebukes diplomat over Afghan torture allegations
The opposition MP's, MSM, pushed hysteria over H1N1 and have repeated their smears trying to score cheap shots against the government and have smeared three retired generals, an ambassador. Now the Red Cross backs up the Canadian Government narrative.
“This has not happened in Afghanistan because we have a constructive dialogue with all the relevant parties, including Canada. This constructive relationship is not one-sided. It is as good with ISAF-Eloi Fillion, deputy director of the International Committee of the Red Crossin Afghanistan, where it has a staff of 120 foreigners and 1,500 locals.
Canada’s top soldier in Afghanistan says he’s confident the current Canadian process for holding and transferring detainees has enough checks and balances to ensure they are treated properly by Afghan authorities.
Is the Golden Temple all real gold, asked Canadian PM
Alhuwalia, who moved to Canada more than 25 years ago, said, "There were thousands and thousands of people to see the Canadian prime minister. Seeing this welcome in my hometown, I told his executive assistant (Jeremy Hunt) that the PM is more popular here than the fifth Beatle. There was so much response and energy.''And this overwhelming welcome for the Canadian prime minister in Amritsar was reported back as "chaos' by the Canadian journalists accompanying Harper.
"From the viewpoint of the Canadian media, it was chaos, but it was excitement and energy generated by the prime minister's visit,'' added another entourage member and biggest Indo-Canadian landlord Bob Dhillon.
"When the PM came to the Golden Temple, he was treated like a rock star. There were 100,000 people and the energy was overwhelming. The amount of respect the prime minister got there surpassed anything I have seen in my whole life,'' the self-made multi-millionaire said.
