Letter: Gutsy PM stands up to Putin

Our Prime Minster Harper displayed his true gut…when he told Putin: “I guess I’ll shake your hand but…You need to get out of Ukraine.“

To the editor:

Our Prime Minster Harper displayed his true gut and determination to the whole world at the G20 Summit in Australia when he told Russia’s Putin: “I guess I’ll shake your hand but I have only one thing to say to you: You need to get out of Ukraine.“

He spoke the words that other world leaders only thought of saying to the Russian boor who is denying democracy and its principles to the poor Russian citizens of White Russia in Belarus ,Ukraine.

I am sure Canadians will also remember and appreciated Harpers tender side when he spoke eloquently and tearfully on Remembrance Day in memory of the loss of our two brave soldiers who were brutally killed by home grown terrorists.

As true Canadians we can give him thanks for displaying his special qualities of leadership during these troubled times.
