The word "hawk" and the name Bob Rae are seldom found in the same sentence — except when it comes to Ukraine. Canada's ambassador to the United Nations said recently that the federal government should give Ukraine every weapon it asks for. Ever since the onset of major hostilities last winter, Rae — the former interim Liberal leader and former NDP premier of Ontario — has been one of the leading Canadian critics of the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Online and in major speeches, he'
