Peter Kent recently returned from a three day trip (February 17-20) to Honduras, proudly declaring the mission a success. As Canada's Minister of State for the Americas, Kent is the Tory government's point person for Canada's growing political and economic interests in the region.

Ignoring the ongoing abuses of human rights in the country under the new coupist presidency of Porfirio "Pepe" Lobo, Kent has been following through with his promise to promote the normalization of the country's relations with the rest of the hemisphere.
