Harper to Putin: “Get out of Ukraine”

Posted November 15, 2014 by JR

At the G20 summit:

Reluctantly accepting Putin’s hand, Harper was said to have told him: “I’ll shake your hand, but I only have one thing to say to you: Get out of Ukraine.”

It Sounds Good, Sort of, On Paper

Posted November 12, 2014 by The Mound of Sound

Canadian carbon bubble

Posted October 15, 2014 by Boris
