COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY AARON WHERRY IN CBC NEWS

 

“Chrystia Freeland [with many newly assigned responsibilities] is now the minister for almost everything

“New mandate letters suggest a government focused on being seen to get things done”

 

As Canada’s Foreign Minister, Freeland supported a terrible government in Ukraine, Poroshenko’s, one put in place by a coup against an elected one. A government supported by extreme Right-wing factions like Azov Battalion and the Right Sector.

She supported America’s attempt to overthrow a twice-elected government in Venezuela. Effectively, she supported terrorist acts like shutting down all the country’s electricity a couple of times, destroying refrigerated food for millions of ordinary people.

She’s not said a word against new American pressures threatening Nicaragua and Cuba. Not a word against the obvious coup in Bolivia, overthrowing another elected government.

She never said a word about the extreme bloodshed of Saudi Arabia, both in its foreign and domestic affairs, never complaining about a single important matter in that terrible government.

She supported America’s destructive trade war on China, and, indeed, destroyed Canada’s good relations with China as part of her support.

She echoed Washington’s empty, hostile rhetoric against Russia.

Ditto for Iran and America’s reckless destruction of a well-working nuclear treaty.

She is liked by Trump’s State Department, in a kind of recommendation from hell.

What does it take to fail in a Justin Trudeau Liberal government?

Oh God, for the Canada of Pierre Trudeau or Lester Pearson or Paul Martin, a Canada with some honor and principles in international affairs.
