At a ceremony in New York today the Appeal of Conscience Foundation will present Stephen Harper with its World Statesman of the Year award. Former U.S. secretary of state Henry Kissinger will deliver the prize.
Canada's Prime Minister is really racking up the hardware. This morning a coalition of international and community groups announced that Harper has won the first ever Richard Nixon Prize. The award is given to a leader for pursuing "principled, forthright and steadfast international policies in the interests of the rich and powerful, regardless of the consequences" to everyone else.
The decision to grant Harper the Richard Nixon Prize was made after a thorough review of his foreign policy.
