"Scathing Report Shows Rampant Conservative Sole-Sourcing of Military Contracts

Bono blasts Harper, accuses him of blocking progress on Africa aid

Gotta love Bono. He doesn't pull any punches. Really like these lines:

"We know who's causing the trouble and who isn't. And we know that Canada blocked progress. We know that Harper blocked it."

He described the prime minister as out of step with Canadians who enjoy a prosperous economy and surplus public finances and would like to help others."

Bono said he doesn't believe the prime minister was too busy to meet with him at the summit - the leaders of the United States, Germany, France and Britain managed to do so.

"It's not the pop stars he doesn't want to meet. It's the movement that we represent," Bono said.

"I said some years ago that the world needs more Canadas, and I meant it. I can't believe that this Canada has become a laggard. I think he's out of sync with the people."

Well, well, well. If the cajone-less Canadian media didn't take a bold shot at Harper, at least Bono is still there...
