All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
is that good men do nothing.
- Edmund Burke
Alison at Creekside has an excellent post that every Liberal and New Dem needs to mull over.
She has digested 15-votes in the United Nations General Assembly since the Trudeau government came to power in which Canada has sided with Israel against the Palestinians. 15 consecutive votes in which Canada, joined by the US, Israel, sometimes Australia, and America's satellites - the Marshall Islands, Nuru, Palau - have voted against the rest of the world.
It's a great bit of work. Follow the link. See what Canada stands for and what it stands against. As Alison notes, all three parties - yours included - are on the same page on this one.
Alison's fine summary made me recall how I cringed to watch Dion attempt to explain away Canada's $15-billion sale of armoured war wagons to Saudi Arabia on CBC. I winced when he said 'oh well, every country is selling arms to the Saudis (untrue)' adding that if Canada didn't supply these fighting vehicles to this state sponsor of terrorism then some other country would. Before he was done, Dion added that Canada had received Saudi assurances they wouldn't use these weapons against their own people. I suppose the Saudis give the same assurances to the Americans when the US ships fresh supplies of cluster bombs knowing the Saudis will drop them on Yemeni civilians.
Stomach churning, disgusting. Their Canada isn't my Canada. Never will be.
