Canadians are still very liberal oriented despite the election of the Conservative Government

Reader comment on item: Does the [New York] Police Department Profile? Should It?
in response to reader comment: Has Canada gone nuts?

A reading of almost any Canadian newspaper - except the National Post - will reveal how steadfast Canadians ( at least those who write and edit these rags) stil are:

- compassionate imagery for Muslim Youth fill the editorial pages - in one case, in the Montreal Gazette, a letter by a so-called leader in the Muslim Community, 1/3 of the page, justifying their isolation and anger re: "Palestine", Iraq, Afganistan, racism, etc... ALWAYS THE INNOCENT DOWNTRODDEN VICTIM

- Guantanamo - tragic, tragic, despite what the editorial cartoons do not say - that they are very well treated, much betterthan prisoners in muslim countries, of which there is silence

- The Conservatives only received 36% of the votes; the other parties: Liberals, BlocQuebecois ( illegitimate) and the NDP - wau out leftists, received the balance - so this may only be temporary

- Almost Complete Media blackout re: the Khadr family

- many articles printed from the New York Times - byThomas Friedman - how liberalism and the democrats can win, etc etc etc & others from the Economist - with plenty of code words " insurgency", " the events of 9/11", extremists, etc, etc, - No vision, no solutions

- very litle re: the daily bombardment of rockets from Gaza

Liberalism is a virus that has infected the country since the 60's, ( Pierre Trudeau, Pearson, Neil Young, Buffy Saint Marie, etc etc )
