While I've probably been one of the more vocal anti-American voices, I realize that not all Americans are the same, and that democracy has been a real problem for the better part of a decade. Despite Ignatieff's citizenship, he shows that he is a competent leader, and he does stand for the cancellation of the F-35 contract. Ethics and accountability should be big issues for Canadians. If we continue to allow democracy to erode, then we are no better than those we condemn as terrorists.
