Embassy Magazine: Lee Berthiaume: "Foreign affairs issues to watch
this season"
(15/9/2010)


"There is a general feeling within many circles that the Harper
government is wary or skeptical of the UN and the way it works. This
distrust and frustration has been exacerbated by numerous
resolutions targeting Israel for condemnation, which Canada has
criticized as being one-sided; by Canada’s strong stance vis-à-vis
climate change, which puts it in opposition to the much of the world
body’s membership; and the bloc voting patterns that have stalled
strong actions and responses to some major world problems. There are
also concerns the world body gives legitimacy and a platform to
regimes and despotic leaders like Iranian President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad."



Embassy Magazine: Minister of International Co-operation, Bev Oda,
"Grade = C-"

(15/9/2010)

"Ms.
Oda has also lost serious points in the NGO community after reports
started surfacing in the winter that groups like Kairos and
Alternative had been denied a renewal of their CIDA funding,
purportedly for their support of Palestinians’ rights. Although Ms.
Oda said the organizations’ mandate does not match the new CIDA
priorities, NGOs have started to speak out against what they call a
chill on advocacy and, ultimately, the agency’s disregard for
democratic practices that allow these groups to criticize the
government. Worst move: Creating the sense of advocacy chill among
the NGO community and flip-flopping on the abortion debate."




Toronto Star: Linda Barnard: "Helen Mirren: The Queen gets physical"

two time periods, following a trio of young Mossad agents in 1965 in
East Berlin who are dedicated to tracking down and capturing a Nazi
war criminal known as the “Surgeon of Birkenau” in order to send him
to Israel to stand trial for his atrocities. But something forces
them to make a decision that will alter their lives and 30 years
later, they must deal with the consequences of that choice."
