Well, that’ll piss off the generals

Prime Minister Moves to Grant Honourary Canadian Citizenship to Leader of Democracy Movement in Burma, Aung San Suu Kyi

Interesting move. I approve (since I’m sure Stephen Harper’s decision-making hinges on my approval…).

Note the language, too: in news articles and press releases including this one, I’ve noticed an almost total switch from “Myanmar (also known as Burma)” to plain-jane “Burma” over the past six months or so. Nobody seems to care about humoring the generals anymore.
