It’s not surprising that various Liberal party types are bummed out over their failure to score a UN Security Council seat for Canada, despite four years of trying. It is surprising that Liberal MP Omar Alghabra doesn’t know how to use Twitter’s search function. If the MP for a Toronto-area riding was a bit more skilled with social media, he’d have known not to have tweeted on Thursday afternoon that it was “quite distasteful how the Conservatives and (Andrew Scheer) are gloating that Canada didn’t win a Security Council seat. It used to be that Canadian partisanship stopped at the border. Bring back decency, please.”
