deafening silence

I got turned on to this video clip today. The content itself isn’t particularly entertaining. It is mostly just clapping or silence. What it suggests is far more interesting.

It is a series of excerpts from the live stream of the UN General Assembly on November 29. It features the introduction of five consecutive speakers, the third of which is Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, MP John Baird. Baird is received in silence – the only speaker to receive this snub from the Assembly.

Apparently people outside Canada are growing weary of our government’s behaviour.

and an interesting article just published today:

Canada ranked as worst performer in the developed world on climate change. At least we outperformed Kazakhstan.
