Although Harper was in New York during opening of the United Nations but he will not be speaking to UN General Assembly. His highness has no time for the UN.
He was on his potty break as usual. All previous Prime Ministers - Mulroney, Chretien and Martin spoke at UN General Assembly. Shame.
“In fact, questioning Harper's views of the UN is becoming as much a regular event as the prime minister's streak of missing its annual opening session, even though he's been in New York at the same time for the last two years.
Academics, retired diplomats and the opposition parties insist he's making a huge mistake by, at best, ignoring the UN, or at worst, denigrating its role and importance in a world increasingly fractured by civil war, terrorism and inequality.” CBC
