Trudeau appoints Bob Rae as special envoy to Myanmar
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is appointing Bob Rae a special envoy to Myanmar, two months into a growing crisis that has left 600,000 Rohingya Muslim people displaced.
The move comes in response to growing public pressure to act in the face of what Canada and the United Nations have labeled ethnic cleansing of a long persecuted minority in Myanmar. As of Sunday, it’s estimated 603,000 Rohingya, mostly from the troubled Rakhine state, have fled to shelter in neighbouring Bangladesh (Because that’s where they’re from).
Myanmar is dealing with a Muslim insurgency, they are deporting the Rohingya who provide the terrorists their support. India is following suit. We do not need to add to our own problems, let Muslim nations suck it up and actually do something for once.
