Former diplomats on joint U.K.–Canadian Embassies deal

Former Canadian diplomats Paul Heinbecker and Ferry de Kerchov discuss, on Power and Politics of CBC, Ottawa's decision to merge diplomatic missions with the U.K. A very informative discussion on this issue and what it means for Canada.

I believe this is one of the most stupid actions the Harper government has taken. I am amazed that generally media is silent on this issue. Fellow liberal bloggers have said very little on this.

Harper has denigrated our country in the international community. On the environment Canada has become a pariah in the world. We are nobody when it comes to the United Nations. His Highness Harper is in N.Y to receive some shoddy award from a little-known group but is not even visiting the United Nations where the annual meeting of the General Assembly is occurring, just a few blocks away. 100 world leaders will be there. It is a very sad state of affairs for Canada.
