We didn't get a seat on the Security Council. Canada withdrew its bid, conceding the seat to Portugal. I'm actually happy about that. There is no reason to pander to international socialists, progressives and Islamofascists.
Lawrence Cannon unfortunately struck out when speaking about the withdrawal at a press conference. He blamed Micheal Ignatieff for losing the seat because he publicly declared that Canada did not deserve representation on the Security Council. This doesn't help our case at all. Liberals who pride themselves on being un-canadian, on leaving the country for three decades, on kissing both cheeks with the elites at the UN, certainly did not help their country at the same UN.
This gives Iggy far too much credit. He couldn't even win his own party's leadership in an election among liberals. There is no way that Iggy could have cajoled that many countries into voting against Canada. They had their own reasons.
One of those reasons is the state of Israel. Our support for Israel is like a finger in the eye of many evil regimes at the UN. This is something to be proud of. We should organise a state visit to Israel. Support for that one country displeases all of their enemies. The enemies of Israel are Canada's enemies too and should expect further displeasure. Odds are we could find ourselves bombing some of those countries in the next ten years.
There are probably a bunch of other little reasons to vote against Canada. No bribes and gifts. Ezra Levant. The environment lobby.
The more interesting question is about what to do now?
Apparently Canada is the 7th largest donor to the UN. Lets reduce that amount to Portugal size.
Our $400 million contribution to the Copenhagen debacle bought us absolutely nothing. The environmentalists will take our money but they won't be bought. Perhaps we should stop paying them. It does absolutely nothing to give them money. I suspect the progressives are wise to our lip service anyway. Lets just come out and tell the bastards where to go.
The lie of Global Warming has already begun to crack. All the UN's horses and all the UN's men can't put Global Warming back together again. Its a wealth redistribution scheme and everybody knows it. The plan is to take power from sovereign countries and give it to basket case countries who won't know how to keep their charity anyway. The UN will be the benefactor and distributor of Canada's wealth and will therefore retain the power we gave them. None of it will help the world or the environment. It only helps the UN.
The Cancun summit should be fought by Canada. We all need to do our part to save us from the eco-fascists and if we have to fight through Tory ministers that is what we have to do. Please put an end to this UN IPCC charade. We can see its a fraud. We cooperate and still we get hammered by the hypocrites. Its gone on for far to long. Get us out of this ridiculous sham called the UN, or at least slap these socialist elites until they smarten up.
