Do As We Say! (not as we do)

The world's finance ministers are wiping out 40 billion dollars worth of debt by the world's poorest countries, according to a deal reached by the G-8 Finance Ministers during their annual meeting in London, England.

The deal will affect 18 countries right away, with up to 20 others eligible if they meet targets for good governance and tackling corruption.

I believe the wording of the deal was - "any country caught behaving like the Canadian Liberal government will immediately be disqualified from receiving any aid or debt relief."

So Canada doesn't qualify for debt-relief because of a lack of good givernance and failure to tackle corruption - too bad.

Too true.

Now, Frank McKenna, the Cannuckistan ambassador to the US of A, says Canada opposes the debt relief. Says it's too much money for those poor Africans to handle.
How bleeping arrogant is that?????
