Darfur update

OTTAWA - The Liberal Opposition accused the Harper Conservatives Monday of ignoring Africa as it unveiled a four-point policy plan aimed at bringing peace to war-ravaged Darfur.

Here are the four parts of the ambitious proposal from the Liberal Party of Canada.
  • The appointment of an envoy to coordinate UN missions in Africa.
  • This envoy would work with Canada's allies, including Norway and the U.S., to try and get China involved in Darfur. See, China hasn't done anything because there's oil in the Sudan.
  • Canada will strengthen its contribution to the AU peacekeeping mission. Good luck getting the U.S.'s help.
  • Canada will revitalize the stalled peace process that ended figthing between north and south Sudan.
