‘This has not been a good hour for Canada’: John Baird slams Trudeau government on Saudi state TV

As Canada’s relationship with Saudi Arabia remains on the rocks, ex-foreign affairs minister John Baird appeared on Saudi state TV over the weekend to denounce the Trudeau government for its “gratuitous attack” on the Saudi regime.

“For Canada to treat a friend and ally this way has been incredibly unhelpful,” Baird told the English-language arm of Al Arabiya, the Saudi-owned equivalent of Al Jazeera.

LILLEY: What is Justin Trudeau’s real agenda with the Saudis?

Justin Trudeau stumbled onto a winning issue when his foreign affairs minister picked a fight with Saudi Arabia.

Seems there are plenty of Canadians who don’t like the Saudi kingdom are happy to see Trudeau kick sand in their face.

What Canada’s spat with Saudi Arabia reveals about Trudeau’s scatterbrained foreign policy

The worsening spat between the governments of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has been mostly analyzed from the Saudi angle: a case study of the kingdom’s eggshell sensitivities and bossy expectations of deference. Yet the story also reveals much about Trudeau’s own inadequacies as a statesman, and the thoroughly confused nature of his foreign-policy priorities.

‘We don’t have a single friend’: Canada’s Saudi spat reveals country is alone

Soon after Donald Trump took office, it became clear that the longstanding relationship between the United States and its northern neighbour was about to change: there were terse renegotiations of Nafta, thousands of asylum seekers walking across the shared border and attacks on against Canada’s protectionist trade policies.

But this week laid bare perhaps the most blatant shift in the relationship, as the United States said it would remain on the sidelines while Saudi officials lashed out at Canada over its call to release jailed civil rights activists.

“It’s up for the government of Saudi Arabia and the Canadians to work this out,” state department spokesperson Heather Nauert said this week. “Both sides need to diplomatically resolve this together. We can’t do it for them.”

GUNTER: Saudi oil still gets a pass on Trudeau’s enviro rules and taxes

Just a quick question for the Trudeau government about its current tiff with the Saudis: If you’re serious about standing up to Riyadh, how come you are stilling giving their oil a free pass? How come you have exempted it from your upcoming carbon tax and are not subjecting Saudi oil to the same environmental regulations you have imposed on Western Canadian oil?

It couldn’t be because most Saudi oil is destined for Quebec?

Hey Kuffar Canada! We’re happy to take your money for our oil says Saudi Official – Dhimmi Justin is happy too no doubt

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia’s diplomatic dispute with Canada over its arrest of women’s rights activists will not affect the ultraconservative kingdom’s oil sales to Canadian customers, the Saudi energy minister said Thursday.

The remarks by Khalid al-Falih show the limits of the ongoing quarrel and may calm some of the bluster surrounding the dispute that suddenly erupted Monday over Canadian diplomats’ tweets asking the kingdom to release the detained activists.

A statement carried by the state-run Saudi Press Agency quoted al-Falih as saying oil sales are not affected by politics as there is a “firm and longstanding policy that is not influenced by political circumstances.”

Boy that Justin really knows how to get tough.

‘Clear risk to jobs’: Trade dispute with Saudi Arabia worries General Dynamics workers

A high level of anxiety could be felt as hundreds of workers at the General Dynamics factory in London, Ont., waited and watched for details on the future of arms contracts with Saudi Arabia.

The U.S.-based company entered into a $15-billion Cdn deal as a supplier in 2014 to build light armoured vehicles for the Saudi Arabian government. Maintenance crews from the Ontario manufacturer were also expected to be embedded at multiple locations throughout the kingdom.


Note – during the election the wee hypocrite Justin called the LAV III “Jeeps”
