When you read this editorial from the Toronto Star titled “After Ukraine tragedy Vladimir Putin should shackle his dogs” it should give you a glimmer of hope that the Media Party isn’t completely full of Harper Derangement sufferers:
Whoever pulled the trigger, Russian President Vladimir Putin can’t dodge responsibility for the rocket attack on a Malaysia Airlines flight that left 298 people from a dozen nations dead. And Prime Minister Stephen Harper is right to say so in the bluntest terms.
At the end of the day Russia’s “military aggression and illegal occupation of Ukraine … is at the root of the ongoing conflict in the region,” as Harper noted. Only Putin can shackle his dogs of war. (see here)
Question now is will the Harper-hating columnists at the Star swallow their pride and show an ounce of integrity by doing the same?
For example, I’ve asked Thomas Walkon if will do the right thing after previously writing “Stephen Harper attacks Putin on Ukraine to burnish legacy” (see here) and admit he was wrong and apologise.
I will update if he responds.
