McKenna Criticizes Scheer For Supporting Brexit, Forgets That She Praised Syrian Dictatorship

Which one is worse?

On Twitter, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna expressed outrage over Andrew Scheer supporting Brexit.

Linking to an article that was meant to cast Scheer in a bad light, McKenna said “Wow.”

“Canadian Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says his support for Britain’s departure from the European Union is undiminished, despite the chaos Brexit has sown in British politics.” Wow.

However, of all the people out there, Catherine McKenna is probably the last one who should be expressing outrage over Scheer supporting Brexit.

After all, Brexit was a decision made by in a democratic referendum in a relatively free country.

By contrast, Catherine McKenna praised the Syrian dictatorship in 2017 when they joined the Paris Accord:

“Canada Salutes Nicaragua and Syria for joining on to the Paris Agreement! Global #ClimateAction. #COP23”

Catherine McKenna Syria Tweet

As Deputy Opposition Leader Lisa Raitt pointed out, the Syrian government was launching chemical weapons against their own people at the time McKenna praised them:

“Outrage from the Minister who praised Syria for its environmental policy as it was using chemical weapons on its citizens.”

McKenna appears to have forgotten about her praise of Syria, or hoped that everyone else forgot about it.

Which one is worse? Praising a democratic decision, or praising a brutal dictatorship?

Once again, in her zeal to score some partisan points against her opponents, Catherine McKenna has shown a tremendous lack of awareness.

For Decades now, politicians have been Surpressing advanced factual science to keep their political agenda alive such as religion, global warming, etc.

The contrast between the Liberals and the Conservatives is so very clear. The Liberals , from their leader Trudeau who openly supports and endorses communism, for its efficiency in economic matters to praising Fidel Castro as a great leader of vision and now MacKenna supporting the failed state of Syria and its leader.The Liberals really show their hypocrisy by being blinded by their own ideology , so that they now think and believe, that Andrew Scheer is making a mistake for supporting a democratic decision by the British public to leave the European Union. Which shows that neither Trudeau or… Read more »


MacKenna is another brain dead like Freeland ( sisters in trade. ) Brexit is a move to retain Nationalism and not be subservient to Berlin Germany. Study history you loon, two world wars fought against Germany should clue you in.
You , you mis- informed one world government led by the UN need your head examined. The new buzz word is Populasim which is in fact double speak for Nationalism. You are not fooling anyone kid.
a political approach that strives to appeal to ordinary people who feel that their concerns are disregarded by established elite groups.

The decision to leave the Euro dictatorship was made Democratically. By the people! MacKenna disregards democracy and arrogantly thinks she knows best and democracy should be subservient to her thoughts. WRONG. When in doubt support democracy even if it is opposite to the wisdom of arrogant Liberals,


Barbie is a Climate Joke. Send her back to Greenpeace or Tides or whatever rock she crawled out from under. There must be consequences for an elected rep that lies and demonstrates incompetence to this degree. She and her colleagues are Democratic Socialists, the likes of the airhead Ocasio-Cortez in the US.
