Canadians may not be noticing

But the World has recognized our diminishment under Harper.  Conservatives often rail against what they see as the uselessness of the Liberals "Middle Power" approach.  Harper has tried a faux muscular foreign policy.  Time to check and see where it has gotten us.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper was left off the guest list for an emergency meeting of world leaders that included U.S. President Barack Obama in the final hours of the Copenhagen climate talks.

Obama arrived in the Danish capital Friday morning in the hopes his influence could sway the 193 countries here to get a deal done. Shortly after arriving, the American president headed into a special meeting with 19 other leaders.

Among the attendees were Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister He Yafei, Brazilian President Luiz Lula da Silva and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

The list, provided by the White House, did not include Harper.

Oops.  Well at least they are handling things on the home front well (snerk).
