Hi Australian Prime Minister. Welcome to Canada.. What do you think of Canada and Australian relationship ?
Howard sings U.S. praises in Ottawa
Mr. Howard, who arrived in Ottawa directly from a triumphal Washington visit, told a joint session of Parliament that he’s an unapologetic friend and ally of the U.S., which he described as a “remarkable and powerful force for good in the world.”
Moreover, Canada, Australia and other nations should deeply appreciate “the decency and hope that the power and purpose of the United States represents to the world.”
Those who would like to see Washington playing a lesser role in world affairs should be careful what they wish for, Mr. Howard said, because “a retreating America will leave a more vulnerable world. It would leave a world more exposed to terrorism and would leave a more fragile and, indeed, dangerous world.”
The Australian leader’s laudatory remarks about Washington won warm applause from Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Conservative MPs and senators. The applause from Liberal benches was not quite as enthusiastic. NDP and Bloc Québécois MPs sat silently.
For the love of god you are addressing the Canadian parliament which is deeply divivded on the role of US in world politics. Pay a little attention to local politics and show a little class.
