Corbella: Trudeau’s actions have helped fuel and fund Saudi aggression

Last week, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and Global Affairs Canada each sent out tweets publicly demanding that Saudi Arabia release recently arrested activists, including Samar Badawi, the sister of Raif, a blogger who has been in jail since 2O12 for criticizing the morally bankrupt kingdom.

Raif’s wife and three children live in Quebec and became Canadian citizens on July 1.

Freeland’s tweets — which have undoubtedly worsened the likelihood of these brave activists being released — were noticed by the Saudi royal family, which has retaliated in a big way.
