Canada-US war of words escalates
« on: December 15, 2005, 09:11:55 AM »
Canada's Prime Minister, Paul Martin, has warned the US that he will "not be dictated to", saying Canadians expected him to stand up for their country.
Mr Martin was responding to comments made by US Ambassador David Wilkins.
On Tuesday, the diplomat urged Canadian politicians to watch what they said about the US while campaigning for January's general election. Mr Martin is fighting for re-election after his minority government was ousted in a no-confidence vote.
Relations between the two neighbouring countries suffered after Canada refused to support the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
Last week, Mr Martin lambasted Washington over its decision not to join the global effort to combat climate change.
 Irked
After calling on Canadian politicians to calm the rhetoric, the American ambassador said: "Canada never has to tear the US down to build itself up."  "All of us should hope it does not have a long-term impact on our relationship. And that's what you have to weigh scoring short-term political points against," he added.Although Mr Wilkins did not mention Mr Martin by name, he suggested he was irked by his criticism of the US at the climate-change conference in Montreal last week.
But the Canadian PM said he was not trying to score political points by slamming the US but had every right to speak out in favour of his country's interests.
"I am not going to be dictated to as to the subjects I should raise," he told reporters.
"I will make sure that Canada speaks with an independent voice now, tomorrow and always, and you should demand nothing less from your prime minister."
Conservative leader Stephen Harper described Wilkins's criticisms as "inappropriate" and said no foreign ambassador should be intervening in another country's election campaign.
Canadians will go to the polls to elect a new parliament on 23 January, after Mr Martin lost a no-confidence vote. The minority Liberal government had been in power only 17 months.

all i got to say is Bush is an asshole and Martin is dumb as a mule

Fuck Paul Martin. The gaps getting tighter, the debate tonight is gonna be damaging as hell to him.

Most hip-hop is now keyboard driven, because the majority of hip-hop workstations have loops and patches that enable somebody with marginal skills to put tracks together,...

Unfortunately, most hip-hop artists gravitated towards the path of least resistance by relying on these pre-set patches. As a result, electric guitar and real musicians became devalued, and a lot of hip-hop now sounds the same.

What's your beef with the Tories? Harper is good though, glad to see you're a fan. What's your riding?

Duceppe's gonna rip him a new asshole again, then Layton and Harper will kick him while he's down.

Oh and I want to say it's bullshit that they won't let Harris into the debate. I know the Greens have no seats but they have official party status, and if my tax dollars go towards them I have a right to see them in the debate.

Those terrible commercials the Tories have may hurt them more than help them. I really could care less who wins. It's going to be a very minority government and I expect another no confidence vote in a lot sooner than 4 years.

I thought the ads were pretty decent actually. Tasteful at least, I hate fearmongering and negativity. Still early though.

Yeah I'm not a big fan of the foreign policy but with a minority not much will get done in that way. Besides with Michael Ignattief pushing his way up the Liberal party quickly there will be a big shift to a pro-American policy from the Libs.

Who's the MP is that riding?

Lol, nice story. Is he just a backbencher? I've never heard of him.

Yeah exactly. If the government is funding them they should at least get to be in the debates.
