In a shocking series of eight United Nations votes in a row, Canada broke with our diplomatic tradition, broke with our allies, and most importantly, broke with our Canadian values and our national interests, by actively defending dictatorships at the UN.
It was a series of votes earlier this month. The subject was human rights violations in Cuba.
And is it not true, as the U.S. says, that Cuba has no freedom of speech, freedom of the press, no independent court? Of course it’s true. Take it from the left-wing group called Reporters Without Borders, which agrees with them.
Just four countries voted for this — the US, Israel, Ukraine, and Swaziland.
It's pitiful that countries like Switzerland or the UK or Italy voted to abstain. Fine. 64 abstentions. Most of them democracies, by the way; others were U.S. allies.
But Canada outright voted against it.
This wasn’t staying neutral in the face of evil — which is execrable, which surely we have learned from in history. No; this was positively siding with evil.
Why? Well, this article a few weeks back gives us a hint:
Canada’s brain-injured Cuba diplomats speak out about Ottawa’s silence
Starting in the spring of 2017, a dozen embassy staff and their family members, including eight adults and four children, almost simultaneously began experiencing symptoms including gushing nosebleeds, ringing in the ears, fits of nausea, dizziness, incapacitating headaches and mental impairment, often striking most intensely in their homes late at night. Those affected represented about a third of the embassy staff.
Cuba attacks our diplomats — and yet, Trudeau loves them, and won’t lift a finger against them.
And according to diplomats who spoke with the Globe and Mail, it’s because Trudeau wants Cuba’s vote, and other dictatorships, so that Canada can sit on the Security Council of the UN for a couple of years.
That’s a meaningless, pointless symbol — perfect for Trudeau, I understand — but worthless.
But now it all makes sense, doesn’t it?
