WEAK: Trudeau Government Gives In, Asks Saudis For UN Meeting

By being the first side to seek talks even after the Saudis incendiary rhetoric, the Trudeau government shows weakness and a submissive attitude towards a country that is an economic enemy of Canada.

In a clear example of weakness, the Trudeau government has made the first move to try and ‘repair’ Canada-Saudi ties, asking the Saudis for a meeting at the United Nations.

The problem is that the Saudis used extremely incendiary rhetoric in reference to Canada, and took unilateral steps to ‘punish’ us economically after a tweet they didn’t like.

While Freeland’s tweet was not the most strategic move, once the Saudis overreacted and tried to make an example out of Canada, the Trudeau government needed to show strength.

Instead, they’re acting in a submissive manner, by refusing to retaliate against the Saudis and now by asking for a meeting.

According to Bloomberg, “The Canadians are suggesting talks between the countries’ foreign ministers during meetings of the United Nations General Assembly, according to a Canadian government official who spoke on condition of anonymity. At stake is a Saudi order to freeze any new deals for Canadian firms operating in Saudi Arabia, such as SNC-Lavalin Group Inc., and to end an arrangement under which the kingdom provides thousands of doctors a year, and funding, that’s become a key part of Canada’s medical system.”

By asking for the meeting, the Trudeau government has sent a clear message that other countries can say whatever they want about Canada, and we will still back down.

Instead, the Trudeau government should have cut off all economic ties to Saudi Arabia, and banned Saudi oil from entering Canada. We don’t need Saudi Arabia, and we should rely on our own strength rather than being dependent on a country that is our economic enemy.

If the Liberals were really standing up for Canadian Values & human rights we wouldn’t be buying Saudi oil. We need to invest in developing our Canadian natural resources and build the Energy East pipeline to become energy self-sufficient.

Just a Turdo is exactly like its demon father. It won’t allow Western Canada to be economically successful; we might get uppity. That’s at least part of what this is about.


Oh Spencer, these are the Truliar LIEberals, they mostly cannot even dress themselves without help. After the veterans sorry mess up, after the pipelines horrible mess, after insulting Alberta repeatedly, after the mess with NAFTA, while insulting our USA friends and neighbors and their honestly elected President, after “Mr. pretend dress up” insulting another friend India, after their gender ? (they still don’t understand) mix up, after their fake feminism stupidity, after the huge debt not needed in good times but Canadians told it will solve itself , after their invited illegal border crossers and refugee expensive mess up, hurting… Read more »

They’re Liberals. They don’t know any way to be other than stupid. They’re the same or worse in the USA.

This was undoubtedly done due to the various Eastern Canada multinational companies that currently make a lot of money from their SA connections. There’s SNC/Lavalin a big player from Quebec, and Irving Oil who purchases 20 million barrels per day from SA for their NB refinery,then Power Corporation is a big player in ME oil,probably some of it with SA associates, and somewhere you can bet other big players in the Canadian Elite are involved in the ME. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/canada-saudi-arms-deal-1.4579772 And of course,a big Ontario branch plant is involved in the $15 billion LAV deal. No,Trudeau is just doing as he’s… Read more »


Don Morris agree with you totally and I am from Ontario and have always disliked Lieberals since the original P.Truelies communist was in power, I also cannot believe these Lieberal/ndp voters and have you noticed most of them you cannot trust either and they are greedy, without thought for others.

Valerie Clark

Well said, Don Morris! You understand Canada perfectly. You’re obviously a real Canadian.

Valerie Clark

I disagree with this viewpoint. There are Canadian companies that do work for Saudi Aramco. They employ thousands of Canadians and make billions of dollars a year doing it. Canadians are very talented when it comes to the oil industry and since the Liberal government seems intent on destroying ours, it’s good that we have another oil industry for which to work. Human rights in other countries are none of our business.
