Canada - Joining The Failed States?

Men will of their own accord gradually work their way out of barbarism so long as artificial measures are not deliberately adopted to keep them in it.
Immanuel Kant, What Is Enlightenment?, Kant Political Writings, p. 59

The Oracle of Ottawa thought that Canada had scrapped absolute bottom when Canada, under the auspices of the 'Harper Government', announced denunciation of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification. This of course put us in the auspicious company of one in relation to the world. Even though by doing this, the 'Harper Government' again literally shit in its own nest, since there are desert areas in Western Canada that were getting a lot of good out of the Convention. You would think that it would be very hard to top that. But Dear Reader you would be wrong again. There is no political party on Earth at the time of this writing that has such a natural propensity to soil itself and the once stellar reputation of Canada as does the present Conservative Party of Canada, otherwise known as the 'Harper Government'.

 You would think that the 'Harper Government' would surely attempt to redeem itself in the face of its base and the World by getting behind the Arms Trade Treaty. But yet again the world and all of Canada was mortified that Canada under the leadership of the 'Harper Government' has decided that the popularity of agreeing with Russia, China, North Korea, India, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt was a much better decision.  

At the time of this writing, Canada has been greatly outclassed by the following states: Antigua and Barbuda, Costa Rica, Guyana, Iceland, Italy(!), Mexico, Nigeria(!!), and Trinidad and Tobago, who have not only signed on to the treaty, but have all ready ratified it! Even the United States of America, the greatest arms dealer on Earth, has signed on to the treaty! But not the 'Harper Government', The Lord of War. One can only imagine how much small arms the 'Harper Government' plans to peddle in the near future. One must always assist the Invisible Hand and facilitate open markets and free trade at every opportunity.
