How many more final straws does the United Nations have to pile onto Canada’s back before it packs up and pulls out?
Last week, as Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird was in Paris with the 100-nation Friends of Syria collective, all to discuss stronger sanctions against the murderous regime of Bashar al-Assad, this same murderous regime is in line to be handed seat on the United Nations’ Human Rights Council.
We wish this were a sick joke, but it’s not.
Instead, it’s a sick reality.
If our mothers were correct that we are indeed judged by the company we keep, we cannot help but wonder why Canada remains the seventh-largest contributor to this global dog’s breakfast when it is chock-a-block with despots and crackpots who have little or no regard for humanity.
So why not get out and get out now, and align ourselves more intensely with NATO and other democratic organizations.
In the past decade, the UN’s Human Rights Council — which slags Canada relentless — has elected the now-dead Col. Moammar Gaddafi as its chair, and even called an emergency session to mourn the death of Sheik Ahmed Yassin, founder of the Hamas terrorist movement.
It is time Canada got out. As in now.
