Once again, as Jeffrey Simpson recently pointed out, foreign policy seems to be a non-issue in the election.
It is somewhat understandable. With our soldiers in Afghanistan, the polar ice caps at a record low, our non-compliance of kyoto, the environmental implications of the tar sands, Obama and McCain’s reliance on Canadian oil in their energy security plans and the continued erosion of human rights, its not like foreign policy should be relevant to Canadians.
Well our friends over at Canada’s World are trying to change all that. Better still they have a list of questions they are encouraging people to ask candidates in their riding. Ask a few questions here and few questions there, and suddenly the main stream media might start paying attention.
