Canadian PM in Political Flap Over Cuban Crisis
Posted: July 31, 2007
Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper is a man in a very difficult position over the incredible tragedy in Cuba. Between trying to keep scheduled public appearances and navigating the political waters of the Cuban refugee crisis, Harper has seemingly run aground.

When an unnamed representative of the PMO (The Prime Minister's Office) approached a political blogger mistaking him for a science consultant for the PM he apparently released a very candid rant. His succession of complaints was online before the PM's office had time to realize their mistake.
Canada has had a 67 year trade relationship with Cuba and even during the current American Embargo, is the most common point of entry for tourism to Cuba. Canada has twinned multiple of their cities with Cuba. Over 1/5 of all of Cuba's exports were with Canada, and 85 Canadian Companies were actively doing business in Cuba.
Unfortunately for Harper, that would go against his backers who want much stronger relations with the Bush Administration and therefore a cooler relationship with Cuba. They don't want to do anything to drive another wedge between the current administrations.
Additionally, The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and The United Nations is pushing for Canada to come to the Caribbean and help co-ordinate operations to protect and prevent the crisis from repeating itself again. CARICOM is also inviting members of the European Union and The African Union to help.
Canada already has a military presence in over 20 countries, most notably is the war in the Middle East. Harper now has to choose Canada's commitments to keep and which to put off until they can better address them.
Also since Harper's Progressive Conservative Party only has 124 seats in Parliament out of 308, his minority government is left vulnerable to the 3 opposition parties. Since the release of the blog many of the members of these parties are crying out for immediate action and extreme measures to both stop the crisis before it spreads and save the suffering people of Cuba from this tragedy.
Unfortunately for Stephen Harper anything within or without of his control relating to the Cuban Crisis will now be linked to him and his re election election. This may be the first election internationally that will be decided on the Necro-Mortosis Issue.
Prime Minister Harper's office has released a statement saying that the views expressed were of a Cabinet staff member and not shared by the Prime Minister.
