Haitian Tragedy Political
If Canada during Harper's watch hadn't helped the Bush League orchestrate a coup against a populist President and then replaced him with a puppet, the people of Haiti might have fared better after three hurricanes if only because they would have had a president who actually gave a damn about them. After the Franco-American coup that ousted him President in exile Aristide said "In overthrowing me, they cut down the tree of peace, but it will grow again, because its roots are well planted." I suspect hurricane Ike left them whole and ready to rise again.
