The Conservatives have introduced an opposition day motion calling for Parliament to recognize that what is happening to Christians, Yazidis and Shia Muslims across areas controlled by ISIS, is genocide.
While the Liberals often like to proclaim that “Canada is back”, and is a world leader, the opposite seems to be true on this issue.
Harper and the Conservatives stood tall on the international stage, trying several times to convince our allies to join them in declaring genocide, and many have done so since the election that brought Justin Trudeau and his Liberals to power.
Yet the Liberals continue to make excuses, claiming that they need an outside body, such as the United Nations, to tell them that the systematic targeting of people due to their ethnicity or religion, is genocide.
I’m not sure why they have so much trouble with this though I can’t help but notice that every time the topic of Christians being targeted comes up, the Liberals become squeamish.
