    The ONLY reason we are discussing this ‘openly’ and ‘freely’ is that Pinochet lost favor with the people who back Fascists like Steven Harper…. business and profit before EVERYTHING!

    Yes, our Canadian governments ‘played ball’ with Pinochet because he made Canadian companies …and subsequently the Conservative Party of Canada, and the Liberal Party of Canada

    People that ‘play ball with Fascists ARE FASCISTS!
