What are the chances Peter Mackay can lay off hound dogging after Condoleeza Rice long enough to behave like a Canadian Foreign Minister?
Slim to none I'd wager.
Which is too bad for the Iranian immigrant family from Toronto whose Zoom Airlines flight from Guyana was diverted into Puerto Rico because of a medical emergency.
Verbena-19 is all over this one and is asking for people to email Mackay's office asking for some kind of action to get this innocent family some help.
I'm going to do that but I also admit that I don't hold out much hope that Mackay will step up for this poor family and their 9 year old son.
The Foreign Minister of Canada is a gormless, gutless, nutless errand boy for the Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada.
The Right Honourable Stephen Harper is yearning to wield the same arbitrary of powers of detention here that his US counterparts have.
The Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada is not likely to do anything to draw any attention to instances of those powers being arbitrarily and grossly abused.
That might make too many people wonder why he wants those powers so badly.
