The Harper cabinet minister who removed “equality” from the mandate of Status of Women Canada, arguing that that would improve women’s equality, today went further down the rabbit hole:
One of the cabinet ministers visiting Afghanistan to meet with that country’s leadership and Canadian troops says that roadside and suicide bombings in Kabul indicate that the situation is improving in the country.
According to the Canadian Press, International Co-operation Minister Bev Oda went before skeptical Afghan journalists and said roadside and suicide bombings indicate that the insurgents have made a shift in tactics. She said that shows the success of the NATO mission.
I wonder, if the insurgents get their hands on a dirty bomb or worse, will Oda continue to take that as a positive indicator of progress?
