Canadians who think Ottawa is corrupt should “take a look at Afghanistan,” the parliamentary secretary for foreign affairs said yesterday. Liberal MP Pam Damoff (Oakville-North Burlington, Ont.) told the Commons ethics committee her government is also better than Russia’s.

“I have been called a traitor,” said MP Damoff. “I have been told the government is corrupt. I often say to people, take a look at Afghanistan. Take a look at what is going on in the Middle East right now if you actually want to see countries where there are terrorists running a country as in Gaza.”

“You’ve got Afghanistan where women and girls have no rights at all,” said Damoff. “It really troubles me when people are making comparisons to other countries around the world like Russia, comparing Canada to that.”
