RIYADH/OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada on Monday refused to back down in its defense of human rights after Saudi Arabia froze new trade and investment and expelled the Canadian ambassador in retaliation for Ottawas call to free arrested Saudi civil society activists...........

Welcome to the new era of overly presumptuous colonial feminism.The smugness of Canadian self righteousness and touchy feely false superiority will now cost Canada billions of dollars in Saudi Trade and will end the monetary flow to many Canadian Universities as Saudi students are ordered home from ALL Canadian Universities, which are the seed beds of Canada's militant feminism movement.
Now the pu$$y whipped nation of Canada will pay , and the vacant stares of Canada's Liberal party now tell the tale. CANADA DOES NOT WANT THESE LIBERALS ANY LONGER! Out damn spots!
Leave the Saudis alone. They are not going to change their ways just because some Canadian jumped up feminist prig decides to run riot with Canada's diplomacy based on so called superior values.
Talk about sophomoric.
Chrystia Freeland needs to resign in ignominy.
Has Canada suggested new personal pronouns to add to the Arabic Language and use in a revised Koran?
Regardless, it tells us who’s pulling the strings in the Western world where too many leaders have said Islam is “a religion of peace” as George W. Bush put it after 9/11.
15 of the 19 terrorists came from Saudi Arabia, yes indeed.
Boris Johnson talks the way he does about burkhas for attention but would he do what Canada did. The economic dependence of the UK on Saudi business is that great.
Saudi money and power is important and principles get thrown to the ground for it.
This is not about curbing Arab influence in Western economies. Its about the Hillary Clintonesque presumption that Freedland can tell the Saudis what color of underwear they need to put on, just like a colonialist whose values are “superior” to the kaffirs who are unannointed into liberal fascism.Welcome to Canada’s new era of in your face liberal fascist neo colonialism.
Saudi Arabia can be GRADUALLY changed simply by continuing to addict them to Western products, media, food and booze.But doing what Freeland has done will really hurt Canada’s already struggling economy....thousands of jobs will be lost and there is a very real human consequence to Canadians.
Shame on this feckless biatch and her neo colonialist feminism. She simply needs to ensure the export of Canadian products to the Saudis, not go major PMS on them!Talk about low class.
Hillary Clinton has been a Saudi butt kisser like all the Uniparty in the USA.
Barack Obama was chastised in this country as POTUS when he didn’t show up quick enough when the Saudi king died several years ago.
Saudi Arabia is a theocratic authoritarian state just as surely as Iran is.
Its just that its brand of Islam has more financial power and influence than Iran’s Shia brand.
I guess Quebec and BC are going to have to settle for Alberta oil.
Yes, I agree with you on the larger scale of things BUT, really, to watch the complete lack of skill in Canada’s feminist cabinet is appalling.
One half of Justin Trudeau’s cabinet was selected because they were females. When asked by the press why, Justin Trudeau replied, “After all it IS the 21st century.”
This collective of neo-colonial sophomoric feminist cabinet women will cost the Liberal Party the next election in Canada. At least there is something to celebrate.
When will Canadians like Justin Trudeau realize that its not whats between the legs that matters, its the wisdom of experience and aplomb.With Canadian women politicians that comes only with age, and even them in certain cases, never.They have gotten more women killed abroad, such as Zahra “Ziba” Kazemi-Ahmadabadi, than they have helped with their caterwauling.
The only thing the Saudis recognize is military might, and Cnada has a standing military of about 100,000 men and women who must learn to die bilingually in French and English, this mind you in a nation with a population of 35 millon with the longest contiguous coastline in the world to defend. That’s another liberal degraded Canadian institution.
No wonder the Saudis are now kicking Canada down the road like an old tin can of colonial leeches.Canada just lost its diplomatic leverage completely.
I guess Quebec and BC are going to have to settle for Alberta oil.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Maybe that’s the only upside, but the new Trudeau liberal sponsored pipeline environmental regulations have put a stop to most of the new pipeline development leading East, that and the defacto nationalization of the Alberta . BC pipeline initiative.
Canada’s mouth is writing checks its but can’t cash.
Canadas mouth is writing checks its but cant cash.>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Agreed in spades. Imagine someone marching into your front room and telling you your wife needs to be allowed to go out and party on her own without you at least once a week for an over-nighter?.
That’s the equivalent of what Freeland has done to the Saudis.No class at all.
I’m all for Canada dictating some western values to Saudi Arabia. National sovereignty does not mean a right to evade international censure on even the most egregious human rights abuses. It’s high time someone brought KSA down a peg. And the US has plenty of oil in Alaska for Canada, and the pipeline to deliver it, too.
Oh, goody! I have a bridge to sell not far from the site. It's the one that goes to Brooklyn. Cheap!
Sometimes Canada forgets how tiny and insignificant it is.
To compare, Canada has ~36M people. It ranks up there with Morroco and Afghanistan.
The city of Sanghai has ~24M people. California has ~37M.
Saudi is a bit smaller at 33M but it has oil (exporting 10M bbd vs. Canada’s 3).
Sorry Canada, no one really cares what you say or how much you want to influence others.
Maybe for human rights sake we should remove Trudeau
The funny part of the story is that if any of us here in Canada criticized islam, we’d be thrown in the gulag.
It’s one thing to complain about western feminazis and Canadian int’l screw ups, but SA is a vast wasteland of hate, bigotry, state-sanctioned violence and misogyny. What it does to foreign domestic workers should alone make the country a pariah.
And don’t forget the war crime called 9/11.
I must have missed the outrage that occurred after Justin Baby Trudeau stood up for Tommy Robinson.
All true, but Canada has ensured that it can’t do jack about that. So Canada would be wise to stop flapping its gums.
I know! Steel doesn’t melt, either.
Im all for Canada dictating some western values to Saudi Arabia.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
So am I.
But his is not even the mouse that roared. Its the mouse that squeaked.
And now there is no more cheese to boot!
Way to go Canada, give up diplomatic leverage for reductio ad absurdum. We are women, hear us roar!
