Chretien Claims Harper Has “Shamed” Canada

Shut your caviar-hole, Mr. Ad-Scam/Ahmed Khadr/let Zahra Kazemi’s Murderers Get Away With It:

In an open letter published Saturday morning in several newspapers, former prime minister Jean Chrétien says he is ashamed of Stephen Harper.

Chretien wrote in the Globe and Mail, La Presse and Le Devoir that Harper’s reaction to the refugee crises in Syria and Iraq have helped to cast Canada as a “cold-hearted” nation in the international community, and that he has “shamed Canada.”

“In my travels around the globe, I am regularly asked: What has happened to Canada? What has happened to the advanced, peace-seeking, progressive country Canada once was? What has happened to the country that was a model for peace and stability in a tumultuous world? These questions evoke great sadness in me,” Chrétien wrote.

If this piece of crap thinks that drivel will sink Harper and save the Fils, he once again under-estimates the electorate that doesn’t vote on hair alone.

    But 51% of the electorate does vote on hair alone.

    “His travels around the globe” as an errand boy for oligarchs.

    • Exactly.

      Who took a lucrative job with a petroleum company after leaving the Kazemi family high and dry?

      Chretien is such a miserable b@$#@rd.

      • Jean Chretien and Paul Martin abandoned the so-called “child soldier” Omar Khadr to rot in Guantanamo Bay for almost 5 years. Neither of their Liberal Governments made the slightest effort to get the “child soldier” released.

        Stephen Harper at least got Omar repatriated to Canada to serve out his sentence here — which was just a slap on the wrist compared to the jail time he would have continued to serve in the U.S.

        Yet if you talk to Canadians on the street, they believe it was Stephen Harper who was Prime Minister when Khadr was abandoned to his fate in Guantanamo, and when he was so-called “tortured”, et cetera.

        Stephen Harper wasn’t even a politician in 2002 when Khadr was jailed in Guantanamo, much less Prime Minister! Oh the power of Canada’s Left-Liberal propaganda.

          Why did Harper even want him back?
          I never could figure that one out.

          • Doo Da Daze

            That was a deal with President zero who wanted to clear Gitmo!

          • Harper should have told Obama to go and f— himself.

          • Harper was ordered by the Supreme Court to advocate for Khadr’s repatriation to Canada, since Khadr is a Canadian citizen, based on “Charter” reasons — they claimed he was being “tortured”. This occurred after there was a massive push from the Left-wing press to bring back the “little child soldier Omar” (who already was a fully grown man with a Jihadi beard by that time).

            Funny how the press and the Supreme Court didn’t demand Khadr’s return when the Liberals were in power, when Khadr was actually still a teenager, and when he was in fact subjected to a bit of stress for interrogation purposes, after he was first captured.

        • Child-soldier, my @$$.

          This is Harper’s albatross and he deserves to have it hanging about his neck. As much of a bugger as Chretien is, this is something Harper can own.

          • I dunno, Harper was ordered by the Supreme Court, and he put if off for as long as he could. Khadr’s Scottish lawyer has also launched appeals concerning his conviction — Harper has consistently fought these appeals. That’s why Khadr’s lawyer has come out publicly ranting and calling the Prime Minister all kinds of nasty things such as “bigot”, et cetera:


          • Harper didn’t do enough. He could have refused Khadr re-entry into Canada.

    Does Jean Chrétien have a son with awe inspiring hair?

    I hope not.
    On a serious note, I (and I am safe in speaking for all Americans here – across time and space) have always hated that f*cking toad.

    I swear to God, in the aftermath of 9/11, I was thinking “why not just do ‘thunder runs’ through the streets of Ottawa and pull down some of their statues”.

    • Chris

      There are many Canadians who are embarrassed by this pylon. Unfortunately are voices are drowned out by the harping seal leftist MSM

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Honestly, I just assumed it was all of you guys, as did a lot of Americans.
        When Chrétien was on his full tilt rants, they were WIDELY reported down here to the point where Canada was regarded as France ‘light’.

        It was very damaging to most Americans perceptions of Canadians and Canada, that until that time was mostly unblemished even for the Trudeau years, because much of what Trudeau was saying was never reported down here, but it really was with Chrétien.

        • Chris

          Just wait until this election is over. If Trudeau or Mulcair win the damage to the relationship could, might, will be terminal. These clowns are dangerous. What was Trudeau Sr. Up to during WW2? It speaks volumes

            He supported the Nazis, at least intellectually. At the time he had been educated by far-right Catholics.

          That was probably because of the FTA and later NAFTA — much closer economic ties. Plus, our Toronto Jays won the World Championship 2 years in a row.

      • David Murrell

        Indeed, the raving, pro-Liberal CTV National news show did a oiece on Chretien’s rant, depicting the pece in a positive light. Btw, the noxious Globe published two op-eds, by Bob Rae and Jean Chretien, two days in a row, attacking Stephen Harper. Geeesh.

    • Concerned Canadian

      Why exactly would you “”he really made me think less of most Canadians for many years” Chretien was a politician; not every Canadian. I do not think less of Americans because Obama is a bozo and treats Canada with total disrespect.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        If Obama was on the CBC news once a week slagging Canada, backed up with almost unanimous agreement from Americans in print, and TV, what would you think?

        • Concerned Canadian

          Actually Obama treats Canada as some sort of backwater not worthy of his concern. Example, he will not approve the Keystone XL pipeline but continues to buy oil from his socialist buddies in Venezuela. I do not see too many Americans jumping up and down calling for Obama to change this policy, so, can I assume that all, or most, Americans think like him?

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Do you hear even Obama chastising Canada for her imperialism?
            No, you don’t.
            The two examples aren’t even close.

    Yeah, I’m sure he’s asked that. Bullshit. I want names and dates.

    I respect Mr Chretien he did a good job to save Canada from a break up in the referendum , something that I will never want see in my entire life , this country to dissappear .

    • Minicapt

      Chretien’s stupidity and pusillanimity was the direct cause that almost lost the referendum.

        Even if Quebec vote to leave they would ‘ave realize they could not afford to.

  • Dave

    “former prime minister Jean Chrétien says he is ashamed of Stephen Harper.”
    Hell, that’s reason enough to vote for Harper!
