Or diplomacy...

Diplomacy 101: Three Things Justin Trudeau Needs to Learn

Quote:
Politics and social media have at least one thing in common: A single action has the potential to cause an overreaction.

On August 2, 2018, Christia Freeland, Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister, sent out a tweet that called for Saudi Arabia to release Samar Badawi, a Saudi female rights activist, and Raif Badawi, a blogger. This was followed up with a similar tweet by the Foreign Affairs Department.

In response, Saudi Arabia, led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salma, imposed retaliatory measures against Canada. These include suspending diplomatic relations, cancelling funding for 16,000 students, and banning imports of Canadian wheat.

The Liberal government’s diplomatic breakdown with Saudi Arabia shows that no lessons were learned from Justin Trudeau’s falling out with Donald Trump.
Yeah, bold mine.

Ah, yes. Our little Purple Perogy...

This would be a truly interesting development in Canadian politics if true. We shall see.

Scheer & the current crop of so-called Conservatives are milksop & nothing more than Liberal-Lite.

If Bernier is set out to start a real conservative party, he will have my attention.

~Becauth ith's 2015!

Puts a whole new meaning to Turdeau...

No apology or regrets for not putting polish to a perceived turd

Quote:
Unlike most Canadians, stereotyped to the point of mockery for immediately apologizing for just about anything, Melissa Robichaud has no regrets over calling our prime minister a “piece of s—.”

Few should blame her.
I certainly don't.

So, about that whole integration thing...

Canada: Govt encourages hotels to impose “Sharia” swim times for refugee girls

Quote:
Watch as I tell you about how Sharia law came to the hotels, under the advice of the refugee wranglers in the federal government.

Special Sharia swim times were set up, before and after regular pool hours, because refugee parents were not permitting their little girls to use the hotel pools as freely as the little boys.
Links' bold.

Ah knows. You can't expect Muslims to be merely thrown into that whole integration pool. Better they get their feet wet for 70 or 80 years first.

Pun intended...

Bernier's outta there.

Coulda Had Max

Update: Bernier is leaving the Conservative Party.
Bernier says CPC has been siding with Liberals on supply management and supports retaliatory tariffs on U.S. Says Canada has "no chance" of winning trade war with the U.S. #cdnpoli
