Welcome International Visitors

Welcome to all who visit this blog from outside Canada. Many of you have undoubtedly come here in your quest for information about Oil For Food.

While you are here, I thought I would take the opportunity to let you know that many of us in the Canadian blogosphere are joining with the Indian Ocean tsunami victims in asking where the $425 million in aid money pledged by the Canadian government has gone. The Sri-Lankans are asking when it's going to show up. And we are getting no answer from our government on its status, or its whereabouts.

To the outside world, Canada looks democratic. Appearances can be deceiving. In a true democracy, I would not need to be posting such a question on a blog.

Comments you post below can help me apply pressure to our government to get this promised money flowing.
