He was to attend the NATO meeting on Thursday, then travel to The Hague on Friday for a conference on Internet freedom, before returning home.But the government announced Wednesday morning that MacKay, who has been under fire for his use of a military helicopter last year, would be going to Brussels instead while Canadian Ambassador to the Netherlands James Lambert will attend the Internet meeting.
