The idea that a journo’s national pride depends on what an utterly corrupt organization like the UN thinks of Canada is more than slightly nauseating and extremely telling.
The Star’s David Olive writes:
I feel ashamed to be a Canadian today.
One of our best friends, the U.N., exhorted us Wednesday to make our “land of plenty” a prosperous place for the unacceptably large number of us who are poor. (see here)
I don’t expect much from the Star although can you imagine taking advice from this guy as the Star’s “business writer”? My issue is the silence from the saner columnists who allow this kind of “I am conditionally Canadian” crap to go by unchallenged.
Is it because of the journo ‘code’ or is the answer scarier than that?
Also: Olive has called PM Stephen Harper “cowardly and a liar” in a previous column (see here)
