....Foreign Minister John Baird on Monday defended his decision to meet with Ukrainian protesters last week during a visit to the fractured country.
Speaking in question period, he responded to allegations by NDP foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar that he acted inappropriately by taking sides in the country’s political crisis.

He added that Baird should be trying to “bridge” Ukraine’s “great divide” — the country is split between pro-Russia and nationalist supporters — instead of picking sides.
Baird told MPs he was “shocked” by Dewar’s comments.
“I’ll tell you whose side this government stands on,” Baird began. “We stand on the side of the Ukrainian people in their fight for democracy.”............

When did Canada become such an interfering busy body?
