CANADIAN FORCED-CONCENSUS on UKRAINE

Proposed amendment to Canadian Constitution, which would need approval from the only 44.4% Kike Supreme Court:

THE STATE AND THE MEDIA ARE ONE!

NO COST IS TOO HIGH FOR UKRAINE!

CANADA WILL INTERVENE TO PREVENT FOREIGN INTERVENTION IN UKRAINE!
QUEBEC SEPARATISM MUST BE RESPECTED, CRIMEAN SEPERATIST DOGS MUST BE CRUSHED!
CANADA WILL FIGHT WITH NATO TO PRESERVE UKRAINIAN TERRITORIAL INTEGRITY!

SO SAY WE ALL!
SO SAY WE ALL!


GLOBE DEBATE: History, not politics, drives Canada’s support of Ukraine

By BARBARA MCDOUGALL

Special to The Globe and Mail, Feb. 27 2014, 2:31 PM EST

Barbara McDougall was [Canadian] Secretary of State for External Affairs from 1991 to 1993.

[...]

Europe would welcome Ukraine into membership, or into the conditionality leading to membership, but there are no precedents for it to get into a tug of war in order to do so. It now finds itself trying to play peacemaker, but while it has the trust of the Ukrainian “rebels” it has yet to be seen what influence it will have over the Russians.

Ukraine must fight to maintain its independence, but it has no money to do so, and its well-wishers are unlikely to write large cheques. In 1991, Canada could provide only minimal financial support (remember those deficits?) but was actively engaged helping to shape the constitution of the newly independent state, and to set up national institutions. The Canadian Bar Association worked on the structure of the court system; Canadian business worked with Ukrainian business on securities regulation and corporate structure.

Today it is hard to see what role Canada is playing, or can play, besides being visibly supportive. The needs now in Ukraine are different. The institutions are there, but the Ukrainian leadership, as in so many emerging democracies, has let the people down. The public is cynical about politics and its own leadership. It is divided about whether to turn toward Europe or tuck itself in again under the comfort of Mother Russia, depending upon regional and ethnic loyalties. The country is on the verge of running out of money, and it is yet to be seen whether the interim government in the process of being appointed will be able to stabilize the financial situation or even command the loyalty of the public.

For Ukraine to return to stability and independence, Western nations including Canada will have to work quickly to ensure appropriate action by the IMF, at whatever cost, and will have to work seamlessly together on a confidence-building strategy to ensure the shaky interim government can hold on until presidential elections in the spring. Transparency will be key; Ukrainians rightly have run out of tolerance for the obscene corruption that has come to dominate public life. Most important, and most difficult, will the West stand firm in staring down Mr. Putin? The coming weeks will not be easy. Nor is the outcome predictable.

COMMENTS

anoutsideview: To resolve this mess is going to take lots of good will, which is in short supply in the area, particularly after the events this month. I suggest that Mr. Baird reads 'Bloodlands: Europe between Hitler and Stalin' by [Kike] Timothy Snyder, which gives some background to the unbelievable, horrific violence that stalked the Ukraine in the 20th century. That might help him avoid repeating some of the mistakes of history.

Rick Taves: That book, as well as Postwar by [Kike] Tony Judt, should be essential reading for Baird and Harper. But Harper is too busy writing something about hockey to have time for fluff such as this.

HillVan: Many of the so called opposition, are very right wing, neo-nazi thugs. Mr Baird be careful to whom you talk!

Kotter49: Mr. Baird IS a right wing neo-nazi thug. He will be right at home.

SteveieGee: Canada is there to show support.. Support + votes from the Ukrainian community just for going to keep Consevative's in power..or try to. Great oppurtunity for a photo op. Only Stephen Harper and his supporter's would enter a region with a Russian military pressence and photo op shutter bug time. How truely sad. How truely desperate.
