From the Annals of Diplomacy: Stephen Harper fires a Cannon at the Parisians

excerpt:

Canadians will remember Cannon as the prime minister's sometime Quebec lieutenant and the man who hilariously lectured the now-departed government of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak for letting his thugs beat protesters in the streets of Cairo six months after law-ignoring Canadian police beat protesters in the streets of Toronto.

The difference, presumably, was that Cannon reckoned the Canadian protesters deserved it.

excerpt:

Cannon, also the former MP for the Quebec riding of Pontiac, is apparently being rewarded by the PM for managing to get his butt kicked out of office by a hitherto-unknown karate black belt from the NDP's Quebec wing.
