Terrorism and war in Africa: Canada's hands are not clean in this cycle of violence

There are no shades of grey, no nuance or even cause and effect in the simplistic world view proclaimed by the current Canadian government.

The Conservatives response to the horrific attack in Nairobi's Westgate Mall has been to thump their chests and proclaim their anti-terror bona fides.

"The fight against international terrorism is the great struggle of our generation, and we need to continue with the resolve to fight this," bellowed Foreign Minister John Baird. For his part, Stephen Harper boasted that "our government is the government that listed al-Shabab as a terrorist entity."

Justin Trudeau must leave behind old Liberal party to stop Harper

Photo: ycanada_news/Flickr

Justin Trudeau is all the rage as potential saviour for the troubled Liberal party. Other leadership candidates are vacating, Twitterdom is a-flutter and all that. But alas, Justin is not his father Pierre's primary political heir. Jean Chrétien is, and he has already declared that the Liberal party should merge with the NDP to stop the Harper rampage.
