Unreal exchange in House of Commons over Canada’s involvement in Iraq -Global

Standard

I am not sure how long Global keeps its video links, but this really is a must see. Regardless of where one stands on the issue of Canada’s involvement in the current Iraq crisis, or on Canada’s relationship with Israel, this not the way to have an intelligent debate on an important policy issue.

Update: “Conservative MP Paul Calandra choked back tears while apologizing Friday for responding to NDP Leader Tom Mulcair’s questions on Canada’s mission in Iraq this week with an attack on the NDP position on Israel.”

Despite the tears, its not much of an apology. He did not promise not to do it again.
