Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird brushed off protesters in the West Bank city of Ramallah who pelted his convoy with eggs and shoes on Sunday, noting that he’s seen “a lot worse.”
Dozens of Palestinian protesters hurled eggs and shoes at the convoy and carried signs protesting Baird’s visit to the West Bank, where he was set to meet with the Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Maliki.
After the meeting, Baird told reporters that, as a member of cabinet in former Ontario premier Mike Harris’ government, he was used to protesters.
The fact that a man representing Canada at the highest level was in Mike Harris’s cabinet speaks volumes about the Conservative government. Baird challenges Condi Rice as the worst cabinet Minister in recent history.
Baird’s remarks show his political styupidity even mentioning a pariah in Canadian politics, Mike Harris.
Speaking the truth about Baird who crowed about having his own rabbi the last time he visited israel, was Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat who said that Canada was standing “on the wrong side of history by blindly supporting the Israeli occupation and its apartheid policies. and hey,let’s throw the regressive stance on climate change.
