Thought For The Day

How unfair is it that when Liberal and NDP members of parliament come out in open support of Hezbollah, the right wing instantly labels them supporters of Hezbollah?? Surely they should be allowed to both have their cake and eat it? They're special people, after all.

Update : An Liberal does indeed have his cake and eat it too:

Statement from Liberal MP Borys Wrzesnewskyj


"What I did say, however, is that the legislation surrounding our banned list of terrorist organizations must be evaluated to ensure our role as mediator is not compromised. Currently, the legislation forbids Canada from having any discussions with those on the list, and I believe this is not the way to achieve peace."

“Canada must be a partner in any efforts by the international community to bring peace and stability to the region, and we can not play that role if we are shackled by this legislation which forbids us from even speaking to those groups on our list. Discussion, negotiation and diplomacy are paramount to a lasting peace.”

[No matter who's on the other side of the table, or what they believe]
