On Friday, International Human Rights Day, Minister of International Cooperation Bev Oda stood in the House and delivered the following remarkably frank assessment of the Harper government's approach to foreign aid :

"In fact this government wants to always ensure that our international assistance is directed to helping people live in poverty effectively, efficiently, and transparently and that's what we will continue to do."

So there ya go. 

Although Hansard has unfortunately seen fit to launder Min Oda's statement, her unintentional candor can still clearly be heard on ParlVu at 11:33am.
