Conservative boycott shuts down Afghan detainee hearing - The Globe and Mail
This is really pissing me off.
“It's not the time to be having meetings that are implying, intentioned or not, that Canadians are somehow guilty of war crimes,” Laurie Hawn, the parliamentary secretary for the Defence Minister, said on CTV's Power Play after the aborted meeting.
It's not the time? If Canadians are "somehow" guilty of war crimes, then it bloody well is the time!
"The olypmics are coming" is not an excuse.
I'd also really love to see the Olympics disbanded, if for no other reason than host nations seeming to use it as justification for authoritarian crackdowns and all sorts of crazy shit. Like detaining journalists at the border to make sure they're not planning to write anything negative about the olympics, or forcing the removal of public art critical of the games.
I really need some positive political news. All I'm seeing lately is a boot stomping on a human face, forever.
