Unfortunately Canada is suffering rightful condemnation for the very foolish foreign policy of the former minister in charge, Chrystia Freeland. That woman is a wrecking machine. She destroyed our relations with China, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Russia.among others. When she told Russia to get lost, Putin laughed and intimated that Canada was just a mouthpiece for the US. He was absolutely correct of course. The US does not need another American loving a** kisser! No wonder Canada doesn’t have a hope!

The entire UN Security Council apparatus needs to be re-examined. Canada certainly does not deserve to be on it, but the 5 Permanent members on this council are 5 of the Countries most responsible for spreading war and conflict.

Campaigns, largely by Canadians, urging UN ambassadors to vote for Norway and Ireland
instead of Canada have apparently touched a nerve in Ottawa:

As a Canadian I can say that I am thoroughly ashamed at this country’s behaviour around the world over the last 4 decades. Canadian foreign policy is largely penned in Washington whose Middle Eastern policies are largely penned in Israel and conveyed through a Las Vegas mogul and ardent Zionist in the person of one Sheldon Adelson.

Someone should tell Prince Justin that it’s 2020, and that Canada’s foreign policy ought to catch up with the modern world.
