Harper Talks Tough In Ukraine

Prime Minister Harper was in Ukraine today for his first trip abroad since the infamous UN vote. Seeing the Prime Minister stand up for Ukraine on the world stage is not only good foreign policy it is great domestic politics.

In contrast the Liberal leader Michael ignatieff has occasionally shown contempt for Ukraine and its people he has gone as far as saying “Ukrainian independence conjures up images of embroidered peasant shirts, the nasal whine of ethnic instruments, phony Cossacks in cloaks and boots, nasty anti-Semites “. What do you think as the greater impact on the Ukrainian community in Canada, Harper’s actions or ignatieff’s words.
