A great big virtual bouquet of roses to PM Harper for phoning Pres. Bush to personally thank the US for their help in freeing the surviving hostages in Iraq. I doubt our previous PM would've been willing to do the same. In fact, with our previous government, I doubt we would've had any involvement in freeing the hostages ourselves.
A great big virtual raspberry to the CPT and the hostages themselves for not having enough class to at least say thankyou to their rescuers, and instead using the tragedy to grandstand and try to pin blame on the US for them being kidnapped in the first place.
