“We think we must widen, for the Haiti crisis, the definition of family. So that Haitian families can bring in brothers, sisters, nephews. We must soften the rules for humanitarian reasons,” Mr. Ignatieff told reporters after a caucus meeting Wednesday.Every day, somewhere in the world... there is a disaster... natural or otherwise.
Think of the misery in Darfur... or most parts of Africa for that matter. There are the rural parts of India. South America abounds with homeless street kids.
There have been... and will continue to be frequent humanitarian disasters worldwide.
Funny how Michael Ignatieff just happens to really, really need one... right now.
