Ax Attacks!

Though I haven’t commented yet, I was very happy with our Prime Minister‘s recent decision that Canada not participate in the American Ballistic Missile Defense (Defence) plan. And don’t think we haven’t been getting a lot of flak about that up here. W won’t return Paul Martin’s calls, our beef can’t cross the border, Condi has been criticizing us.

But leave it to Lloyd Axworthy, one of my favourite “Red” Liberals and a former Minister of Foreign Affairs to lob one back at the Yanks. Lloyd also happens to serve on the international board of directors for Human Rights Watch. I’m baffled as to why he never made a run for the PM‘s job himself. We could have done a lot worse (and often have).
