Between Jack Layton and Gerard Kennedy wanting us out of Afghanistan, the Greens wanting us out of NAFTA altogether, and the Liberals wanting us out of the softwood agreement, are there any international agreements that the opposition parties would like to see Canada honour?
Perhaps next one of the Liberal leadership candidates will declare that Canada should withdraw from the WTO. Why not really go for that brass ring and suggest that we shouldn't support the UN.* Maybe get one of those folks who are always going on about Canada's "honest broker" reputation to declare neutrality so that we can be the voice of moderation in EVERY SINGLE INTERNATIONAL DISPUTE. Who knows? Anything can happen!
Harper's gotta be loving this directionless opposition that is just throwing everything at the wall to see if something can stick. It probably reminds him of when his party had that particular shoe on its foot. What a difference two or three years can make in the political landscape eh?
*Somehow I can't see this one happening. We've made such a fetish out of "UN peacekeeping" that this is the ghost we'll cling to after abjuring all our other responsibilities.
