Harper big on Haiti LOL

It is to laugh to see the Harperites go big on Haiti hoping like hell it would do wonders to their shrinking poll numbers because of his PROROGUE.

Marginally better than he was on Arab Canadians stuck in Lebanon a few years ago, the guy has little interest in foreign aid or any institutional generosity.Next to the USA we are the chintziest people of any major industrial nation, giving the poor a measly 0.26 of 1% of GDP. The USA is around .10%. They give one quarter of their aid to good old Israel, a developed country. The Norwegians pony up  0.87 and Denmark 0.84 .

But oh do we have money for war now that Harper is on the job
