Compared to Harper, McCain sounds like the Democratic candidate

On Omar Khadr
  • McCain says he would favour returning Omar Khadr to Canada and closing Guantanamo. 

On public discourse during campaigns
  • Although often critical of his opponent on many issues, McCain didn’t once use profanity to describe Obama’s policies.

On environmental solutions
  • McCain said a sensible cap and trade emissions system is a critical part of a strong environmental strategy.
  • Harper blasted Ontario and Quebec's new cap and trade emission pact.

On renewable energy
  • We must also work to ensure reliable energy supplies and increase sources of renewable energy.

On Canada, US relations
  • McCain wants to harmonize our energy policies, just like NAFTA.
  • Well on that one they probably agree.
The only question would be “Who would be at the negotiations to speak for Canada?

The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
