“In 2003, Chretien said he would not send Canadian troops to Iraq without UN approval”
*what has just been revealed, is that Jean Cretien did not say Canada would not participate in the invasion of Iraq—he didn’t get a chance to say no—the U.S never asked Canada for our assistancee/participation in the Iraq war to begin with.
*if I can find the link, I will post the story .
Now I will list all the times Jean Chretien has been right about something followed by all the times he has told the truth. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
some qoutes from Jean Cretien when he was prime minister—
*”I don’t know. A proof is a proof. What kind of a proof? It’s a proof. A proof is a proof, and when you have a good proof, it’s because it’s proven.”
*”Perhaps there were a few million dollars that might have been stolen in the process. But how many millions of dollars have we saved because we have re-established the stability of Canada by keeping it a united country?”

When asked for his explanation as to why he grabbed the demonstrator’s neck.
*When you’re a mayor and you have a problem you blame the provincial government. If you are provincial government and you have a problem you blame the federal government. We don’t blame the Queen any more, so once in a while we might blame the Americans.
