While Harper has denied and continued Canadian colonialism, he is joining imperial intervention in Mali.
Stephen Harper has moved Canada’s foreign policy sharply to the right, embracing a more militaristic role for Canada’s armed services, putting trade before human rights.
France's Le Monde newspaper argues for a long-term, Haiti-style tutelage of Mali. The Harper government in Ottawa can be expected to fall seamlessly into line.

The documentary film Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield exposes the Obama administration's threatre of war and hears from people who live at the target end of U.S. foreign policy.
The U.S. spends more on its military than the next 10 countries combined. More than China, Russia, UK, France, Japan, Indian, Saudi Arabia, German and Brazil together.
Canada has joined another military intervention. We need far more debate and discussion about foreign policy in this country.
