The Great White North
Tip to ¡No Pasarán! on this story, titled, "Caught on tape: Paul Martin's photo-op from Human Tragedy". I'll poorly summarize to wit: The Canadian PM and his wife and entourage arrive in then only very recently tsunami-ravaged Sri Lanka. They act badly. Take this quote from the story:
See for yourself how the film footage shows the padre being pushed aside and how overzealous members of the Martin entourage physically knock a Sri Lankan mourner to the ground–without apology.
The footage mentioned is courtesy of one Garth Pritchard, who as it turns out, is an award-winning Canadian documentary journalist.

When you're done with that, check this out.
