It's not either/or.
BOTH of those statements have merit, and each on their own, is insufficient as a policy statement or reaction.
That Harper would so quickly jump on Trudeau and politicize Trudeau's statement, which is much more complex and nuanced, and compassionate, shows more
about Harper's character than Trudeau's, imho as a Canadian, eh?
Edit to add: Harper just lost my support with his cold, black and white, politically slick attack on someone expressing a human desire to understand
and to prevent such things from happening, not as a matter of beefed up security or military affairs, but in human affairs.
Trudeau is speaking from the heart here, and Harper is speaking from nothing but vain and self-serving political opportunism (to score points).
We Canadians are astute and sensitive to this kind of thing, and this doesn't help me to like Harper more, this type of political attack, at this
time, let me just say that much.
That Trudeau appears to be correct, in hindsight, ought also be taken into consideration here as well, leaving Harper to look like Bush Jr. waving in
the wind like an NWO-styled flag of solidarity in the good vs. evil absolutist camp of fight or flight, reaction-response mentality designed to drive
the intended "wedge" home into the hearts and minds of the people..
