John Baird's legacy; lack of diplomatic ties hampers search for Toronto pastor missing in N. Korea

Baird be gone, but the stench of his five year war on diplomacy lingers.

Baird be gone, but the stench lingers in Russia and Iran and North Korea. In theory, diplomats are the guys charged with building bridges to regimes we don't like... that's the very definition of "diplomacy."

John Baird was by every account the anti-diplomat.

Mr. Baird was about burning bridges, not building them.

Baird is now nothing more than a pungent foot-note in the history of Canada's foreign service.

Pastor Lim is just one of many Canadians paying the price.
