MP Larry Miller, who once used Hitler and the Nazis as references to oppose the gun registry, also recently made a dumb comment about how prospective Canadians should "stay the hell where you came from" if they prefer to wear a niqab during a Canadian citizenship ceremony. He is one of a long line of Conservative MPs to make racist remarks. I hope racism, ignorance and stupidity are not becoming mainstream Canadian values, let alone values endorsed by the Conservative Party of Canada. I hope the Prime Minister understands in his awkward silence, he is giving the impression that he is actually endorsing all the ills we have seen from members of his caucus in recent months. He should not.

It's good for you, inoffensive and there's nothing here that seems to be very controversial."
Today is World Environment Day, an appropriate moment to reflect on the state of our nation's journey towards sustainability. In a nutshell, we're not doing so hot. Measured against other OECD nations, Canada continues to rank near the bottom of the barrel for environmental protection.
The decision to import former Republican congressman/presidential candidate/shiny thing enthusiast Ron Paul to this year's Manning Conference follows the long, distinguished tradition of Canadian political parties asking clever Americans to tell them what they think. It's only fair to ask what the Paul pick reveals about the state of Canada's right. much of what Paul has to offer is "miles away from Canadian relevance." There is no Tea Party position on Quebec separatism, after all. Or bilingualism. Or aboriginal land claims. Or the Senate. Or the monarchy. Or the countless other existential and nationalistic dramas that dominate this esoteric sovereign nation.
