As Canada flirts with fascists swastika cartoon creates big stink

No serious person can doubt that Canada has moved well to the right under the leadership of the Harper gang.

How far?

Free trade deals with neo-fascist regimes have been the order of the day.

Just last week Foreign Minister John Baird sat down with the leader of a far right party in Ukraine that has indisputable ties to neo-fascist elements in that country.

All of which has gone more or less unnoticed in Canada and uncommented on in Canadian media.

But let an obscure small-town newspaper with a miniscule circulation publish a cartoon featuring the swastika flying over the parliament buildings, and all hell breaks loose.

Methinks we doth protest too much.
