BBC has trouble seeing across Atlantic

The BBC has accomplished some reporting on Canadian politics which gives new meaning to the term foreign correspondent. As reported in the Star, the Beeb concludes that Jack Layton has for the past several years managed to straddle two jobs as both federal NDP leader and acting deputy mayor of Toronto. And, the Star says, a certain Lawrence Cannon "must really have the Prime Minister’s ear if he can be both Canada’s foreign affairs minister and a political affairs columnist with The Globe and Mail who openly criticizes his boss, Stephen Harper, as a low-road operator.”
