Murdering Trade Union Leaders? No Problem for Harper's Canada

Despite evidence of the world's worst record of labour rights abuses and the murdering of Trade Union leaders - Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper signed a free trade agreement with Columbian President Alvaro Uribe on Friday, November 21, 2008. This is to say nothing of the fact that Columbia (according to the CIA) is the world's largest supplier of cocaine. (How does that square with Harper's so-called "law and order government" and his government's continuous desire to shut down such services as Vancouver's Safe Injection Program - InSite.)

This from a Prime Minister who will punish Canadian provincial governments so severely if they disagree with him that he has Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall running scared.
