travails of canada's neoconzix stephen harper

Prime Minister Stephen Harper was invited to speak next Thursday but he has declined. Instead, he will be elsewhere in New York City accepting an award from the Appeal of Conscience Foundation, an international organization created in 1965 by a New York rabbi.

The prime minister — who has been criticized for losing Canada’s bid for the UN Security Council, for tilting its Middle East policy overwhelmingly toward Israel, for favouring military over diplomatic initiatives, for killing the International Centre for Human Rights and Democratic Development, and for cutting funds to Canadian organizations promoting the expansion of international human rights — will be receiving the foundation’s “Statesman of the Year Award.”
