There is no area of reputation or esteem that Canada has suffered more from the Harper junta than Foreign Affairs. Canada used to be on the UN Security Council. Canada used to be in the UN Human Rights Commission. Canada used to be known as a peacekeeper nation, a fair broker, an honorable player. Like so many things to Canadians, those days are gone. Emperor being in New York the very day of a major summit at the UN, and he chooses to lunch with corporate elite and drop more information about Canada than he does when in Canada. Minister of Bellowing and Foreign Affairs John Baird addressing the General Assembly's empty chairs. Minister of Unemployment and Multidivision Jason Goering being himself, tweeting manufactured facts. The plain truth is, the world doesn't care what these hacks have to say.
Now we have a chance for Emperor to play the "at war" PM, since he was so disappointed we missed out on Iraq in 2003. Polls having nothing to do with it, of course. The dichotomy of the Harper position on Ukraine, Sri Lanka, China, West Africa, the list goes on. Without even mentioning the "Likud can do no wrong" position from this gang. Where do these decisions lead Canada? And where are the other parties on this?

Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! when host Scott McCausey brings on the wife of the late Keith Green to discuss the continuing ministry she and her husband started, Last Days Ministry.
Melody is probably most loved for the songs she’s written. “There Is a Redeemer” is found in church hymn books around the world, and reports of it being sung in villages in Africa and Asia are plentiful. She has also composed many other standards including, “Make My Life a Prayer To You”, “You Are The One,” “Rushing Wind,” and “The Lord Is My Shepherd.”
Melody’s life is an adventure that just keeps unfolding. Besides writing songs, she is also known internationally as an author and a minister. She is fearless when it comes to tackling difficult issues and bold in her travels. She has been to over thirty nations to speak at retreats, conferences, and church services, as well as ministering to men and women in prisons, refugee camps, remote villages, leper colonies, underground churches, and those living in war zones.
Her best-selling book, No Compromise: The Life Story of Keith Green, has become a must-read classic, translated into numerous languages. To learn more about Melody, her book and ministry, visit www.lastdaysministries.org.
The guys are off to two separate events in a couple of days so the focus this week is on how you can get the most out of attending a live event. Are you there to learn, to network, to sell, or something else?

A.A. Conference Approved Myths
A Good Start on and Old Subject
By Dick B.
We begin with the following much-needed article from Pete’s Stuff. It incorporates the long-ignored Box 459 article that GSO has told at least one seeker that it couldn’t find the material. If you want to see an excellent and much longer discussion of this subject, go to the Hindsfoot Foundation site where Professor Glenn Chesnut lays this entire Conference Approved problem in terms of its real importance.
I receive questions about this all the time; and people at conferences, Central Offices, and meetings are confronted with the “conference approved” nonsense with great frequency. Any AA can read anything any time anywhere for any purpose inside or outside of A.A. And that includes comic books and computer manuals. There is no Tradition that says otherwise. There is no Tradition that can or should or will censor or “censure” what is presented at a meeting, whether in discussion or by reading or by literature on a table. And if someone thinks he’s found the mythical tradition, tell him the fact and then tell him the Traditions are not laws.
