2006 – He declares no way will he deal with China in view of China’s record on human rights, asserting that principle trumps the dollar. In the same year, he cancels the Kelowna Accord which has a great deal to do with human rights among Canada’s native peoples.
2011 – He travels to Colombia, which has a questionable record on human rights, to negotiate free trade. Travels on to Honduras, which has an abysmal record on human rights, to negotiate free trade. Dismissing objectors as “protectionists.”
He is our ethical, accountable, transparent, principled PM, the Right Honourable Stephen Harper. Having never set foot outside Canada before he became PM, he is now all over the map.
How’s that for leadership and statesmanship!
