Now comes news that Trudeau is ending our diplomatic objection to Vladimir Putin, the authoritarian president for life of Russia.
The Globe and Mail reports:
"Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion is rejecting an all-party effort to enact an American-style Magnitsky Act, which freezes assets and bans visas of Russian human-rights violators.”
When they were in opposition, the Liberals claimed to care about human rights and democracy. You know, values that we traditionally call “liberal”. In the last election, a good number of Liberal MPs ran on an anti-Putin platform — especially Ukrainian-Canadian Liberal candidates.
Suckers! I mean, didn’t you hear? Canada is back! That’s another way of saying “Canada’s for sale,” that we’ll change our foreign policy if you buy weapons or other things from us.

NEXT: I’m joined by Candice Malcolm, the Sun Media columnist to talk about the huge contrast between Stephen Harper, who championed western values, and his Liberal successor.
THEN: You might remember our friend Robbie Picard, the oil sands advocate and Fort McMurray resident who lost his home in the fire. He gives us an update on how he and his friends are doing, then he describes all the great work the oil companies in the province have done to help evacuees.
FINALLY: Your tweets and emails to me!
