Stephen Harper's personal mantra

"Do the right thing."

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is expected to raise the ire of Chinese officials next month when he meets with the Dalai Lama.

The Harper government has had a tense relationship with China during its tenure primarily due to the Conservative government's concerns about that country's human rights record.
Funny... this doesn't sound like a scary, hidden agenda.
Leaders of Tibet's independence movement in Canada say they hope that the expected meeting between Harper and the Dalai Lama will address the need for serious negotiations about Tibet's relationship with China.
That's my Prime Minister.

RELATED: Other Canadians agree...
(Montreal, Friday, 14 September 2007) – Over two thirds of Canadians believe that the federal government should raise the issue of Tibetan human rights and freedoms with the Chinese government, regardless of its potential impact on trade with China, according to a SES Research poll conducted for the Canada Tibet Committee (CTC) from July 28th to August 4th.

Yes, where's the Left Wing on this one? Harper IS "doing the right thing", and none of the people who decry China's human rights record, have spoken up on this one, too partisan to admit good work by their philosophical opposites?

China gives us a tiny glimpse of how controlling they would be if they were the world's pre
eminent power.

Good job, Stephen.

What are the Chinese going to do about it? put more poison in the food they send us?

Screw China. Prime Minister Harper is doing the right thing again. And I don't even like the Dalai Lama.
