Why is the government handing over $1 Million to the Sea Hitler organizers?

“Alternatives International is a Montreal-based non-governmental agency that has been accorded charity status by Revenue Canada. It seems to be devoted to advancing radical socialist causes, but its actual charitable work is a little more difficult to determine.

One of Alternatives’ activities last year was to serve as the financial conduit for the Canadian boat that attempted to break the sea blockade imposed around the Gaza strip by Israel in order to prevent arms smuggling by Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon. That boat, derisively known as The Sea Hitler, was intercepted by Israel’s navy after repeated warnings by the Canadian and Israeli governments against sailing to Gaza.

Update: The sad fact is that Jason Kenney announced that Alternatives was defunded in January of 2010! See the jpeg.

They don’t look very defunded to me.
