We know. You’ll be surprised to learn that this writer is a Canadian law school graduate:
[Hassan Arif, May 19, 2008] For many of us, it wasn’t long ago when we would talk to our progressive minded American friends and find them feeling apologetic and embarrassed by their President, George W. Bush. In comparison, we as Canadians felt proud about our country. True Prime Ministers such as Paul Martin, Jean Chretien and Brian Mulroney were far from perfect, but internationally they maintained Canada’s proud reputation as a peacekeeper, as an international team player, and as a positive force in the world. Unlike many of our American friends we, for the most part, didn’t feel embarrassed or apologetic about our government’s actions overseas.
This doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
