Canadian travellers have been told they’re not welcome in Libya, in an apparent reprisal for Canada’s near tongue-lashing of Moammar Gadhafi.

Gadhafi cancelled a planned stopover in Newfoundland last month after the Harper government made public its intention to scold the Libyan leader over the hero’s welcome Libya gave a man convicted in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing.

This is one more piece of evidence that Mr. Harper and his govt suffer from zero sense of diplomacy. They must be awful poker players since they obviously don’t know how to play without tipping their hand too early in the game!
