Canada sells arms to human rights criminal Saudi Arabia

Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion explaining to the Canadian Senate that cancelling the deal will cost Canada money.

Isn't it interesting that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Canada's newly elected leader, a man who prides himself and his government as being 'better' and 'more ethical' than the previous government of Stephen Harper, doesn't have the moral or ethical courage to cancel this arms deal with Saudi Arabia, a country, that in the words of Human Rights Watch....

"Saudi Arabia continued to try, convict, and imprison political dissidents and human rights activists solely on account of their peaceful activities. Systematic discrimination against women and religious minorities continued. Authorities failed to enact systematic measures to protect the rights of 9 million foreign workers. 

As in past years, authorities subjected hundreds of people to unfair trials and arbitrary detention. New anti-terrorism regulations that took effect in 2014 can be used to criminalize almost any form of peaceful criticism of the authorities as terrorism." says Human Rights Watch
