    Liberal MP Scott Brison leaving politics, Trudeau to shuffle cabinet


    Veteran cabinet minister Scott Brison is resigning from cabinet and will not be running in this year’s federal election, Bill Curry writes.


    In a video message alongside his husband, Maxime St. Pierre, and twin daughters, Claire and Rose, Mr. Brison said he is ready for new challenges and wants to spend more time with his young family.


    Mr. Brison is stepping down as president of the Treasury Board. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will shuffle the cabinet Monday to deal with the resignation, he said at a news conference.

    Trudeau is probably now removed from the Saudi Royal Family Christmas gift list.

    Saudi woman fleeing family flies to Canada after gaining asylum

    The Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, confirmed his country had granted her asylum. “That is something that we are pleased to do because Canada is a country that understands how important it is to stand up for human rights and to stand up for women’s rights around the world and I can confirm that we have accepted the UN’s request,” Trudeau said.

    Several other countries, including Australia, had been in talks with the UN’s refugee agency to accept Qunun, Surachate said earlier in the day. “She chose Canada. It’s her personal decision,” he said.

    The decision is likely to exacerbate Canada’s already poor relations with Saudi Arabia, which last year barred the Canadian ambassador to Riyadh after Ottawa criticised Saudi authorities for detaining women’s activists.

    You're right, Trump might send a $50 off coupon for a stay at a Trump hotel.

    Why did you link that story about the ambassador with a post about Trudeau?

    The story was about Trump's remarks, yes?

    Do your own homework.

    McCallum got himself canned

    Yeah not a good idea when your ambassador says something inconvenient. However McCallum just got the blame for saying out loud that Trump was Meng's best defence... McCallum didn't actually say or hint that the Canadian process itself wasn't based on law.

    John McCallum’s firing is drawing anger in Beijing


    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau dismissed the ambassador over the weekend − and China is capitalizing on the controversy by lamenting McCallum as someone who was “merely stating the truth.”


    His exit, after remarks that it would be “great for Canada” if the U.S. dropped its extradition request for Huawei’s Meng Wanzhou, is an issue that’s set to plague the Liberals as Parliament resumes today. A senior government official said McCallum has undermined Canada’s efforts to build an international coalition of countries to press Beijing to respect the rule of law and release two Canadian detainees.


    Campbell Clark says the situation is another example of amateur-hour bumbling: “No one – not Beijing, nor allies, nor the public – can really know what the message is. Canada’s firm position is now weak, waffling confusion. It’s a screw-up, and Trudeau gets to own it.” (for subscribers)


    And here’s the view from ex-diplomat John Higginbotham: “Our current China crisis is systemic as well as accidental. Canada’s vulnerabilities to Chinese and American pressures are deeply embedded and largely self-created.”

    In Venezuela, Canada promotes democracy. The U.S. does not


    “Under U.S. President Donald Trump, the American approach to democracy promotion has been strikingly different to Canada’s. He has consistently and recklessly boasted about his willingness to use military force to secure the outcome he seeks in Venezuela.” – Ben Rowswell, Canada’s ambassador to Venezuela from 2014 to 2017

    McCallum probably gave up the plan - let the courts deny the extradition because TRUMP proved the case was political. Trudeau is hands off and clean because we're a "rule of law" country.
