Harper's straight talk: PM's New York speeches put Canada back on world stage
September 22, 2006
In two stand-tall speeches this week, Prime Minister Stephen Harper served notice on the world through the United Nations, and New York's Economic Club, that Canada will make its influence widely felt in defence and promotion of liberal-democratic values.
And how's that going these days? Whoops ... not so well:
Obama arrived in the Danish capital Friday morning in the hopes his influence could sway the 193 countries present to get a deal done. He quickly convened a special meeting with 19 other leaders, but Harper was not on the guest list.
Yeah, we're back. Absolutely.
