“Blackouts, gas bombs and gunplay: How the Canadian embassy is holding on in Venezuela” 

 

Canada’s behavior around Venezuela has been shameful.

We’ve supported an ugly gang in Washington working to destroy a twice-elected government.

A gang that demands, from thousands of miles away, that a man, who did not even run in the election and just swore himself in, be recognized as president of the country. If it weren’t so deadly serious, it would resemble a Monty Python skit.

A gang that resorts to things like wrecking the country’s national power grid, an out-and-out terrorist act which undoubtedly killed a number of isolated people and destroyed the food in the fridges of millions of ordinary people.

Some concern for humanitarianism that represents.

The gang has been at it for quite a while, even before this latest round of anti-democratic activity. The country has suffered many sanctions and economic abuses from the sick men running what they like to call American foreign policy.

Trudeau and Freeland have done a lot of repellant things in Canada’s foreign affairs – Russo-phobic prejudice, support for murdering leaders in Saudi Arabia, stupid acts against China, supporting unwarranted antagonism against Iran – but for some reason I find this work in Venezuela the most disturbing. It goes against everything our Western tradition has given us concerning democracy, human rights, and tyranny – all gained through centuries of strife and suffering,

And we have the dark irony of our legacy in Cuban relations from Trudeau’s father. I supported that, but Castro, despite great popularity, really wasn’t elected. Maduro was elected, twice, and his predecessor, Chavez, was elected.

But here’s Canada supporting sheer thuggery against them.

Let the Venezuelans settle their own affairs for God’s sake.
