Canadians: we will remember

U.S. ambassador to Canada David Wilkins said in a televised speech that Canadian politicians should resist the temptation to "bash" America in the upcoming Parliamentary election campaign, because of the long-term friendship between the two nations and the fact that the U.S. is Canada's #1 trading partner.

I have this to say to Canadian politicians: if you take a strong, principled stand against U.S. policies — from Iraq to soft-wood lumber — we will remember your bravery when democracy returns to the United States. As a true friend of the United States, Canada has an obligation to stand up to American bullshit.
