Canada's leading man of action, Stephen the Grandiose of Ottawa, is scheduled to stand up on his hind legs in the capital this afternoon to unveil sanctions against the Gaddafi regime in Libya. The Vancouver Sun boasts that Harper's decisive and punitive measures will "step up the pressure" against Libya.
Having completely botched an attempt earlier today to airlift Canadians out of Tripoli (apparently nobody told them to get to the airport and the plane had to leave empty) may be why he's waiting until Muammar is in his jammies to lower the lumber on Libya.
Seriously, we're going to "step up the pressure" on Libya? Maybe Gaddafi can't live without maple syrup, maybe not. It's hard to imagine how Schoolmarm Steve intends to ramp up the pressure on a guy who is plainly batshit crazy.
