Political leadership from Canada

Canada will show President Obama the honorable thing to do when Mahmoud Ahmedinejad  speaks today at the UN. Steven Edwards of Canwest news reports:

Canada will boycott Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech at the United Nations on Wednesday, saying his outbursts about the Holocaust and Israel are "shameful."

Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon will be at the world body to attend the opening of the UN General Assembly's annual debate, but officials signal he and other members of the Canadian delegation will vacate the Canadian seats when the Islamic republic's President approaches the podium.
