Totally agree. What's more shocking is how his supporters are adamant that he's actually good for their country.

Cheers...

General Dynamics is a U.S. company. Can you imagine what Trump would do if Trudeau cancelled the contract?

This action and not the social media posts are what I'm defining as meddling. Apparently this was an effort to influence Saudi politics (specifically women's rights). My question for the group is do you support Canada's goal of influencing (or "meddling" in) Saudi politics?

Well, that's not good. Are you suggesting the US should do something? Or should we rely on the Canadians?

The US should stand with Canada to call out human rights violations like we see in Saudi but they won't.

should the U.S. supply bombs to kill schoolchildren?

So many weighty questions, but with God and Trump calling the shots, what could go wrong?

Interested to see if Canada does anything. Also interested to see if Trudeau swallows his pride and asks the United States for help. I assume no to both.

We are. Trudeau is currently in talks with SA. Using diplomacy will solve the situation.

Solve the situation? What would that look like?

We'll have to see. It's already starting. There are a number of SA medical students that were originally told to leave Canada, they have now been given an extension. The pressing issue would be to have the activist who is scheduled to be executed released. Baby steps.

Would it look like Canada ceasing to sell military equipment to SA?

If you think Feminist wind bag Turdeau is at all concerned about white people, regardless of their location, you are sorely mistaken.

That can be forgiven, since you don't live here, but seeing as how he is a self declared feminist, the only thing that surprises me is that he hasn't somehow managed to find some sort of indigenous blood link to some tribe so he can tell everyone he is indigenous as well.

I'm sure he's tried though. Very hard. Probably compromised by getting that Indian art tattoo that was recently the subject of a little controversy.
