|While this agenda is not “secret,” my guess is few Canadians know about it. That’s because Harper, realizing it would be unpopular, unveiled it when Canadians weren’t paying attention - in fact, we were sleeping.

I thought Canada prided itself on being a 'peacekeeping' country? It's no wonder that the people of Canada are very upset with both of their major parties (I think the upcoming election is going to reveal just how upset they are). It appears the US and Canada have a serious leadership deficit. They all need a serious reevaluation of their 21st Century ideas!
