Stunt driving, tax evasion, child abuse among allegations against foreign diplomats living in Canada

Foreign diplomats in Canada are racking up more unpaid debts, breaking more traffic laws, and violating passport rules more frequently, internal reports from Global Affairs Canada indicate.

    Perhaps our little prince can apologize during the Canada Day celebrations to diplomats, for not being more tolerant towards diplomatic criminals. He is going to apologize for every thing else.

    I briefly worked in Ottawa in a job that had me running around all the different embassies in Ottawa (for a guy who had a really cool business arranging travel documents for people). I got to visit the embassy of every little tin pot third world dump on the planet. From that experience, this does not surprise me at all.

      You also undoubtedly got to visit the embassies of every little tin pot FOURTH world dump on the planet as well. It is unfair to lump the third-world dumps from Central and South America in the same cesspool as the fourth-world dumps from Africa and the Religion of Peace. Don’t see the difference, you say? Just look at the island of Hispanola. The east side of that island belongs to the third world, as the Dominican Republic. The west side is clearly fourth world.

        The embassy of Burkina Faso was a nice Victorian house in the Sandy Hill neighbourhood. It needed a total renovation from top to bottom, and furniture. I’d go to pick up a visa and the office staff would be sitting around on the living room floor, half of them stoned.

    Looks as if the word ‘redacted’ is a few steps above the reading comprehension level of the readership.

    Diplomats in western capitals have accumulated millions of dollars worth of unpaid parking fines. It beats me why they don’t clandestinely tow the vehicles, crush them, and apologize profusely for not being able to do anything about the terrible rate of car theft.

    Well connected but not well raised.

  • Seeing as Canada is partially owned by China and whoever else backs the Liberal Party, who can say what is illegal?
