Parliament to Meet Aung San Suu Kyi

God, I can only imagine that talking wig will ingratiate himself in the most false and bloviated way:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is set to meet next week with the Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, considered by many to be the de facto leader of the country also known as Burma.

This appears to be the first visit to Canada of the leader of Myanmar’s democracy movement since she was released from house arrest in 2010. Ms. Suu Kyi was in detention for more than 15 years because of her political activism against the military government at the time.

She is one of six people to receive Canadian honorary citizenship. In 2012, John Baird, the Conservative foreign minister at the time, presented it to her during a visit to Myanmar.

Ms. Suu Kyi, who is also her country’s foreign minister, is scheduled to visit Canada June 5 to 9, according to a news release from the prime minister’s office.

    This could be uncomfortable for Trudoh.

    Aung San Suu Kyi like the vast majority in Myanmar do not like having Muslims in their country.

    • Oh, no.

      She is a woman and one knows how uncomfortable Trudeau is around women who see through his callowness and chauvinism.

      He’ll elbow her right in the girl bits.

        He might try to; she’s one tough woman. It takes a special person to go home to “internal exile”, knowing you may well never see your loved ones again. For this woman, it was her husband, Dr, Michael Aris, who was denied entry visas to Myanmar after Christmas, 1995, even though he had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. He died in March, 1999; she had refused to leave the country, fearing (and with reason) she would never be allowed to return. Her relations with her sons are also somewhat equivocal, given she had chosen to return to Myanmar and stay there under house arrest rather than return to her family and face exile.

        I cannot think of the resolution to do what she did.

        He can try to elbow her int the “girl bits”; she’s older that his Mum and one heck of a lot tougher.

        • As I said before, strong women intimidate him.

          Show me an instance when he has looked at a tough woman as an equal.

          • Frances

            Does he look at anyone else as an equal? He is, after all, the “anointed one”.

          • It’s time that he was brought down several pegs.

      What? Are you saying that people don’t appreciate the diversity and tolerance that comes when you have Muslims in your country?
