Bob Geldof's auto-biography was "Is that it?" Right now, I think many Canadians are wishing that it was.
I respect what he did in the past for famine relief. I respect that he's doing it again - by now everyone has forgotten just how 'drop in the bucket' Live Aid really was - so it's time for another drop, just to raise awareness.
The point he was making about Prime Minster Martin was absolutely correct. Canada is offering a fairly paltry relief package. But... what is he accomplishing by calling out the PM? Good job Bob, alienate Canadians and have us less interested as a group to support relief efforts.
The call to boycott Live 8 is out. Will we listen? Part of me hopes we do, but at what cost?
Well done Bob.
