I was POSITIVE that this was going to be an apology for unleashing Justin Bieber on us.
CE Governments do what they do. Sometimes it's obviously evil, sometimes it looks evil, and sometimes they manage to convince us it's not evil
All we can do is hope that our representatives are making either the right or wrong decisions based upon some moral compass
It is very odd and quite patently obvious Israel has her claws deep into Canada.
But the question is why and how ?
We know Israel has 9/11 on America so they are safe there, but why Canada?
Maybe it time to research who's who in Canadian politics, and background check them, which will give a good indication of were allegiances lay.

We are one of the few nations who our leaders walk out on speakers at UN general assemblies if they do not agree with what the speaker is saying such as they did with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The only way to describe this behavior is "childish".
Canada boycotted a speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the UN General Assembly on Wednesday evening, protesting his denial of the Holocaust and verbal attacks on Israel.
Canada is Israel's best friend: Baird
"Israel has no greater friend in the world today than Canada," Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird declared at the Global Forum in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. "Our strong support for Israel is not about politics at home, and certainly not about winning popularity contests at the United Nations. Canada certainly has the scars to show for it. It's about values."
Baird was addressing the AJC World Leaders Plenary, attended by an audience of more than 1,500.
Canada's pro-Israel position, he said, was a matter of principle, based on the values of "freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law" that Canada shares with Israel and the U.S.
"At the UN and elsewhere, we make it clear that Israel's right to exist is non-negotiable. We vote against one-sided and unfair resolutions," Baird said in a statement.
John Baird said in a statement he is deeply disappointed by the U.N. vote, in which Canada joined Israel, the United States and a few other countries in voting “no.
” He said the only way to peace in the Middle East is through negotiations, not what he called unilateral actions. Recalling the diplomats will “inform Canada’s response” to the vote, he said.
Baird, whose Conservative government is a staunch ally of Israel, travelled to New York to personally vote against it and gave a speech where he suggested Canada will take retaliatory measures against the Palestinians.
Canada recalls diplomats from israel west bank following un vote
In September, Stephen Harper accepted the “World Statesman of the Year” award from the Appeal of Conscience Foundation. John Baird, Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister, must be positioning himself to win next year’s award. For nothing else adequately explains his over-the-top condemnation of the United Nation’s lopsided vote to give Palestine the status of a non-member observer state.
The Harper government has aligned itself so closely with Israel that there is no longer any possibility for Canada to act as a mediator in Middle East affairs. We have lost all objectivity. Negotiating peace agreements requires imagination and compromise, the very things Messrs.
Harper and Baird abhor. Next time Mr. Baird speaks at the UN, he might reprise Nikita Khrushchev’s infamous role and bang a shoes on the podium. After all if you are gunning to be “World Statesman of the Year,” you have to be noticed.
If only he had a shoe to bang
This man does NOT speak for Canadians.

Apologize for yourself, not for the entirety of the nation. While I find Mr. Harper and his Alberta Conservative ilk to be thoroughly repugnant, and disagree with him on most issues, support for the nation of Israel isn't one of them.
