The first. Usually a good thing.
It takes a Tory to screw a good thing up.
Ken Gray from bulldogcanadian.com takes it from here "When a good cause in the world needed to be addressed, Canada was once first in line to deal with it. Now this country is first in line to abandon it. Canada has pulled out of a United Nations convention that battles droughts in Africa. This country is the only nation in the world to have pulled out of the group. Foreign Minister John Baird ordered the withdrawal because he said the convention was expensive and showed few results. We are the only country in the world to have taken such action. Canada signed the convention in 1994."
