As the Toronto Sun’s late, great founding editor Peter Worthington wrote in 2012 in a column as relevant today as it was then, the UN is “useless … kissing the butts of every dictator who violates human rights, making speeches that are mere rhetoric and sanctioning any nonsense that is critical of the state of Israel.” “Maybe it’s time we stopped trying to please everyone and stood up for what we believe. If the UN is miffed … perhaps it’s also time for the UN to change — to develop a little backbone when confronting tyrants.” Contrary to today’s political rhetoric that Canada is a racist state, Worthington noted that in the real world: “One thing Canada does not need to prove to the world is its good intentions.”
