Canada joins free-speech bastion China in failing to condemn Egypt journalists' verdict

The Hindustan Times takes China to task for failing to condemn the verdict in the show trial of the three Al Jazeera journalists.

They forgot to mention that Nation of Virtue extraordinaire, Canada, has also been remiss in critiquing this grave violation of journalistic freedom.

But according to Canada's Foreign Minister John Baird, it's not because we don't care about freedom of speech, it's because we're working "behind the scenes" to mend the error of al-Sisi's ways.

So really, Canada is doing more than anyone to sort things out, and this "quiet" approach has a proven track record.

After all, that's how Baird and Harper got their best bud Netanyahu to shut down his illegal settlement-building enterprise.
