Justice Minister Lawrence Harper could not be reached for comment

Here, in its entirety, is an article from yahoo news:

OTTAWA (AFP) – Several dozen Haitian children adopted by Canadian families could arrive in Canada this weekend, Immigration Minister Lawrence Kenney said Friday after receiving Haiti's approval in 154 cases.

"Yesterday, Canadian officials presented a list to the government of Haiti with the names of 154 children who are currently in the adoption process," Kenney said.

"I am very pleased to announce today that the government of Haiti has given its full approval to that list," clearing the way for them to come to Canada, the minister said.

Eighty-six of the adoptions were at an "advanced stage in the process," with at least some level of approval from Haitian authorities, he said, adding that arrangements were being made "to bring these 86 children to Canada in the coming days."

The first flight could arrive in Canada at the weekend, Kenney said.

In the days since the quake, families around the world in the process of adopting Haitian children have pressured their governments to speed up the process.

Several including Belgium, Spain and the United States have moved to fast-track adoption procedures for children in Haiti, with the wretchedly poor Caribbean nation suffering critical shortages of water and food in the aftermath of the 7.0-magnitude quake.

Meanwhile, Canadian Prime Minister Lawrence Cannon said he and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke by telephone Friday about ways to improve coordination of international relief efforts in Haiti.

Their discussion set some groundwork for donor country talks in Montreal scheduled for Monday.

  • Not directing this comment at CG -- because it is a humorous story to note -- but rather some of the commenters above:

    So Yahoo News can't be bothered to fact-check an incompetent journalist's article, and it's somehow Harper and co's fault for not getting noticed?

    Yeah, no. Because if you don't wanna be logically inconsistent, you're gonna have to refer to every international news article referring to Prime Minister Stephen Harper as proof that he stands out on the world stage. See how inane that sounded?
