\ Stephen Harper, the Canadian prime minister, wraps up his trip to Latin American today with a stop in Honduras. He will meet the Honduran president, Porfirio Lobo Sosa, visit a textile manufacturing facility and hold a roundtable with businessmen.\ \ At the heart of Harper's agenda are plans to highlight bilateral trade. However, critics argue the Harper government is moving too quickly to provide credibility to the current right-wing Honduran regime at a time when the country is still suffering human-rights abuses.\ \ Original source: Montreal Gazette\ \ \ \ \
