An ambassador of war? The thing that we cherished has become lost; the thing that we embraced was an illusion.

An ambassador of war?

The thing that we cherished has become lost; the thing that we embraced was an illusion.

Will these be the words of Canadians within the next five years?

The sovereignty of Canada: Is it at risk?

Canada wants to exercise its sovereignty.  The new Prime minister, Steven Harper, wants to make it expeditious.

Is Canada ready to take such an aggressive stance before the world?

Is Harper like the young child who has just received his first knife — brandishing it with excitement, and wielding it before all to see — with all the negligence of one unskilled in the use of its power?

Is Harper the ambassador of war, and of defeat, who will lead Canada against the United States of America?

Are his bold words presumptuous?

Is there a ready military in place to stand up to a challenge to this boldness?

United we stand; unprepared we fall.
