In a recent post on his blog entitled The Parallel Parliament, MP Glen Pearson puts the recent loss of the UN Security Council seat by our current Conservative government in some perspective.
For example, Mr. Pearson states:
“Despite what many think of Mulroney today, Canada rarely stood higher internationally than during his years as PM. Some in the Conservative caucus today recall those times, quietly aching for their return, and frustrated that their leader has overseen the decline of the Canadian influence.”
I would encourage readers to take a look at the entire post (The Life of Brian).
