Prime Minister Harper voices concerns over Ukraine unrest while in Pretoria, South Africa and says "Canada stands with the Ukrainian people during this difficult time and will continue to forcefully oppose all efforts to repress their rights and freedoms".

It would seem, the Prime Minister is not aware of the growing unrest that continues to seethe and escalate right here in Canada ? Or would he rather put up a front of not recognizing the many controversial issues and demonstrations that take place.Ukraine is presently in a turmoil; speakers are denouncing government. Canada is not immune.
