The petty and punitive Harper government

Anti-whaling activist Paul Watson gets back his Canadian passport, four years after Harper revoked it

Paul Watson, an anti-whaling activist known as one of the founding members of Greenpeace, is finally getting back his Canadian passport, four years after it was mysteriously revoked by the Harper government.

Watson, who now lives in France, told National Observer he received the passport on Monday after a long ordeal that included several battles with the former Conservative government, thanks to a bit of help from Green Party Leader Elizabeth May.
"I met her at the Paris (climate change) Summit and she signed as my guarantor on the passport form," said Watson, who was born in Toronto.
