“We’re very concerned by this sentence. Canada stands firmly opposed to the use of the death penalty everywhere around the world. We think that this is a cruel and inhumane punishment which should not be used in any country.”
So says Minister Of Foreign Affairs, Chrystia Freeland. Where is the prime minister on this issue? The place he has always been–nowhere at all. With a foreign relations issue of this magnitude, does it not make sense for Justin Trudeau to publicly condemn the action, and call for a repeal of the death sentence?
Trudeau had the ability to intervene in multiple cases of so-called Islamophobia. When a young girl supposedly had her hijab torn off in public, Justin was on the condemnation case straight away. Turns out she lied–but this beside the point. The point is Justin Trudeau is a passive wimp when it comes to the nation of China. Perhaps a statement will be forthcoming, however if a death sentence is not enough to motivate Trudeau to puck up the phone and call China’s supreme leader, what is?
Justin Trudeau is the most curious decision-maker of any prime minister in history. Many of his choices are downright baffling. Consistently supporting human rights initiatives for non-Canadians with billions of tax payer dollars, Justin may well leave a Canadian convicted of drug dealing to be executed by the communist regime of China.
Yet, he claims to be taking action regarding China’s boycott of Canadian canola oil. Considering his track record of standing up to the nations he admires–China, Cuba, as well as various Middle Eastern autocracies, chances are he will be entirely ineffective. Justin Trudeau as the right choice for prime minister from 2019-2022? Cultural Action Party wouldn’t bet on that for all the canola oil in China.
