Harper Government removes report on killing of Canadian soldier by Israel

How far is Harper's blind obedience to Netanyahu going to go? He's willing to disregard the life of a Canadian soldier for fear of making Netanyahu mad? Do Canada's interests matter or is our country just a subsidiary of the Israeli rightwing?

Regarding the removal of the report on the killing of a Canadian Maj. Paeta Hess-von Kruedener by Israeli forces, the soldier's widow stated that:
"They don’t want people reading about it. It's embarrassing to the Israelis and, as we know, Prime Minister (Stephen) Harper has given his unconditional support to the Israelis."

What happened to democracy, accountability, and transparency? What happened to honouring and supporting our troops? Harper's subservience has gone too far yet again.
