Walking out on the talk
As numerous news stories relate, "delegates" walked out of the Durban II anti-racism conference over Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's predictable racist rant. (And as CFRA radio's "Madely's Morning Minute" and the National Post editorial board observe this morning, a number of western nations were already boycotting the conference, following Canada's example. An actual example of our moral leadership in the world - think our progressives will celebrate it?) What the news stories don't mention is who didn't walk out. Surely significant.
