(Al Jazeera)   In this opinion column, we learn how one nation's conservative government is eroding the rule of law to suppress the Palestinian cause through slavish devotion to Zionism, and that nation is . . . Canada?   (aljazeera.com) divider line

lol, believing that disregard for international law, "disdain and contempt for its neighbors," or a flawed record on human rights have anything whatsoever to do with success at the UN.

This farking guy.

Wait...Canada's liberal party run Government is too conservative?

As a Canadian, imma gonna call BS, eh?
 
2020-06-17 10:10:28 PM  
Honestly, I would support Norway over Canada for the seat.

I say this as a Canadian.

We need to spend some time getting our shiat in order, and get away from the Trump style conservatives currently trying to gut and sell the country.

Anything more pro Israel than publicly chanting "death to Israel" is going to be problematic for some groups. News at 11.

If you RTFA it says Harper started it and Trudeau hasn't done anything to stop it. Subby didn't get that far.

Of course they're going to push for people who 'take their side' mode than Canada, based on their criteria.

The representative from Fark hereby rescinds the right of veto in the security council.

And the world is now a peaceful, egalitarian democracies.

Funny thing. I agree with them. We need to mature as a country more. Whatever happened to our peace keeping role. I also think Trudeau screwed up by basing our application on how we kiss Israel's ass. I voted for him, and lost a bit of respect for him for this. Millions wasted.

Trudeau can be summed up as "he ain't pretty he just looks that way. "

He is polite, pandering, patronizing and he is only prime minister because his father was Pierre Elliott Trudeau. It's not because of merit. It's lineage.  This is a fact.

Justin is undoubtably a pleasant guy.  Better than Trump.  But that's not exceptional.  Most people are.

He has shown that "Canadian ideals" are more of a slogan than a line in the sand.  Ask indigenous people in Canada.  Look at his words on the international stage. When has he spoken truth to power?  Alluding and suggesting are not a taking a stand.

I don't know what he stands for besides trying to stay in power.

I'm disappoint if what this guy says is true, Canada needs to be better than that. Bibi and his boys buoyed by Trump support are farking over the Palestinians and the rest of the world needs to step up to help stop it.

Palestine was supposed to be unlivable by 2020. Yet they endeavor to persevere. Checkmate libs!

Pretty shiatty headline.
 
2020-06-17 11:34:44 PM  
Dublin and Oslo have been overwhelmingly supportive of Palestine at the UN. They voted "Yes" 251 and 249 times respectively on resolutions related to Palestinian rights since 2000.
...
For this reason alone, it is important that Canada is not allowed to take the coveted seat at the UNSC.


Call me cynical, but does it really matter what the next 250 votes are? What did the first 250 do?

Primarily, he's a culture warrior. He's for multiculturalism, and for legalization of weed, and pro-immigration. Everything else is just Liberal Party wonkery that any Liberal PM would probably be doing. Don't look at him. Look at his advisors and backbenchers.

Well, lookee here. The kook lefties and kook righties of Canada are also in total agreement that the strong center left politician who has delivered massively for his country is "bad". Quelle surprise how much things are exactly the same for Canadian FARK nutters as they are for US ones.

A few things Justin Trudeau's government has accomplished so far:

* Lowered taxes on the middle class to 20.5%.

* Put a stop to all Canadian airstrikes on ISIS targets (aka Operation IMPACT).

* Creation of a new tax bracket for those who earn over $200,000, at a rate of 33%

* Added leave time to those who need to access Canada's Compassion Care Benefit to care for sick family members.

* Created a national public inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada.

* Continued to support NATO Operations UNIFIER (supporting Ukrainian military forces) and REASSURANCE (military assistance in Central and Eastern Europe)

* Removed all regulations that prevented government scientists to speak openly of their work to the media

* Installed of the Independent Advisory Board for Senate Appointments (or just "Advisory Board) that will advise the PM on Senate nominations.

* Made long-form census mandatory in Canada once again to provide "high quality data" for the nation

More can be found here. His major "breaking" of promises is a balanced budget, which is hard during a global pandemic.

"Put a stop to all Canadian airstrikes on ISIS targets (aka Operation IMPACT)."

That's a good thing?

Due to budget cuts, they were only airdropping Tim Horton's and maple syrup on ISIS, so it made sense.

I'm no kook but I think you forgot how quickly he abandoned electoral reform. I'd vote for him tomorrow, as I prefer him to any of the current alternatives, and I really like my MP, who's a Liberal, but that still pisses me off as it was a major reason I found him an appealing candidate in 2015.

I didn't say he was bad. Or good. I pointed out what Trudeau, the singular person, stands for. What his pet causes are. And then I observed that for most of the other things, you have to look at his government, not the individual. After all, the statement I was responding to was questioning what Trudeau stood for and criticized why he ascended to lead the Liberal party.

I'm not sure why you rushed to paint me in a certain light and then immediately conflate his party with the man.
