Outspoken Canadian Legislator Calls U.S. 'Idiots'
By Randall Palmer

OTTAWA (Reuters) - It was damned bastards last year, "idiots" this year.

Canadian Member of Parliament Carolyn Parrish had said she hated "damned Americans" and called them bastards in the run-up to the Iraq war. She found a new moniker, idiots, on Wednesday in discussing the planned U.S. missile defense system.

"We are not joining the coalition of the idiots. We are joining the coalition of the wise," the Liberal legislator told a small group of demonstrators.

Parrish, who had to apologize for her "bastards" remarks last year, at first denied using the word idiots, and when reporters pointed out they had her remarks on tape, she said: "I don't mean Americans are idiots."

Parrish then begged reporters not to use the remarks: "Please guys don't put that on tape," she said. "I already got into trouble once.... Really, please, I've had enough trouble."

Four hours later, however, she hardened her line.

"The last one was a really stupid thing to say," she told Reuters. "Bastards is an inappropriate word. Idiots is a term people use in everyday conversation," she told Reuters.

"They tortured people in Iraq, they (the Iraqis) have no weapons of mass destruction. Could somebody explain to me whether you think they're idiots or geniuses?"

The top spokeswoman for former Prime Minister Jean Chretien, Francoise Ducros, had to resign in 2002 for calling President Bush a moron.

Chretien's successor, Prime Minister Paul Martin, has pledged to put relations with Canada's largest trading partner on a warmer footing.

Martin said after Parrish's latest remarks that the debate about missile defense, intended to guard against attacks from what the United States calls rogue states, was "very, very important."

"There is no room in this debate for that kind of language," he told reporters, waving his hand dismissively. "You're going to get very strongly held views but let me tell you those strongly held views have got to be expressed in language that is acceptable."

But Parrish refused to back down.

"That's Mr. Martin's opinion," she told Reuters. "No, I'm not going to apologize.

oh yeah...well...F*ck Canada :twofinger

and they can quote ME on that. :lol

last time i was in Canada, anytime one of them found out i was American (usually the second i uttered a word, or used my American dollars) they were immediately rude and indifferent to me. i felt as if i was not wanted there. i've never been prejustice to anyone, foreign or otherwise, and that's the way i felt in Canada--pre-judged.

That woman sounds like kind of a bitch, but it's a sad world we live in where people occasionally have to resign over a single inappropriate remark.

The problem is Canda knows they aren't relevant to American policy so they feel anger and resentment towards the US. The funny part is that America could care less. For a country with as much wealth as Canada has, they sure don't help out much on the world stage either militarily or monitarily. They feel better just critizing everything America decides to do.

Ahh. The "they're jealous" argument.

They're not. In fact, I don't believe they are envious of us in any way.

Incorrect. It will still be served, but it shall henceforth be called "Freedom Bacon".
