I still think that the real story about Libya is yet to be written. We don't know who the power brokers are yet, nor do we know what kind of power they really seek.
However, I'm going to point out that Harper, and just about all of his caucus voted consistently against bill C-389 in the last parliament. He wants to talk about freedom and human rights, then let's talk about the discrimination that trans people in Canada face. Although transgender people are "read in" to the interpretation of Canada's human rights act, the fact is that there are no clear protections in law.
The fact is that trans people face obstacles in all fronts of life, and Harper is doing nothing about it. In fact, he is standing explicitly against protecting trans people in Canada.
