Yesterday I gave you some quick reactions to Justin Trudeau’s new cabinet. Over the next few weeks, I'll take a closer look at some of the picks.
Today, let's look at Stephane Dion, the new Foreign Affairs Minister.
Dion is an old Chretien-era warhorse. I’m worried that, with him around, Canada will slide back into bad old Chretien habits, like sucking up to dictatorships like China.
Yesterday, Dion had a message for Israel: Canada isn’t your special friend anymore.
He said Canada was going back to its “honest broker” role — as in, we’d split the difference between good and evil.
That's no surprise. Remember what Dion said after Hamas took power in 2006? That we should give more money to a terrorist dictatorship?
With the appointment of Dion, it's clear the Harper doctrine of standing with democracies and against Muslim terrorists is over.
