Earlier this week Canada kicked out a Rwandan man accused of helping instigate the genocide in his homeland almost 20 years ago, but if were up to the mandarins at the United Nations, Leon Mugesera would still be on Canadian soil.Interestingly enough, all those who cry foul about Harper allegedly "selling out Canada to the US", tend to turn a blind eye at all the "progressive" politicians who want to cede Canadian sovereignty to the UN and the UN-run international bodies, such as the IPCC.
Despite being found inadmissible to Canada in 1995 by a Liberal cabinet minister, deemed inadmissible by the Supreme Court in 2005 and having lost all of his appeals, the UN stepped in to protect the accused war criminal.
The international body wanted its decisions to supersede Canadian law and courts, and have their people determine when and if we could boot him back to Kigali.
I think most Canadians would find it ridiculous that the UN, the body that told its peacekeepers to stand by and let the Rwandan genocide happen, would intervene to protect a man accused of instigating the mass slaughter.
This isn't the first time the UN has tried to take control of Canadian decision-making.
