The Martin regime's long-awaited policy paper on foreign affairs is out. Since I never have too much trouble getting to sleep, I'm not likely to print this out and read it. Martin's introductory remarks were reported by the Globe:
The Globe and Mail: Martin addresses foreign policy needs
You cannot engage in the kind of robust foreign policy (I'm hoping for) if all you are going to do is empty moralizing.
It seems to me that this may not be the best thing. There is widely-held view that a business is best to 'stick to the knitting', in other words, to keep doing what it is good at. Since Canada is a world leader in empty moralizing, should we be so hasty to disavow the practice?
