    Yep. I wouldn't be surprised all this that this government jumped at this chance for a fuck you to the Sauds. Good for them and glad this woman has a new life.

    If this entire thing turns out to be completely staged Canadian political propaganda, I wouldn't be surprised.

    Greeted at the airport by a government minister is certainly cheaper than Canada canceling the arms deal, but I just hope this entire matter doesn't bite either Canada in the ass (Canadians being arrested in SA), or the young woman if SA chops the heads off her family members.

    Are you suggesting that the Canadian government arranged for a fake social media campaign for someone who isn't really a victim so they can score political points?

    She's got 24 hour round the clock security, because of the many many online death threats ( coming from Canadians )

    I think he means that the Canadian government could be just taking this high profile case and exploiting the girl so they could stick it to the saudis without having to cancel the arms deal(still good for the economy) to win them political points under the guise of human rights, because I agree. I mean she was heading to Australia. But When low profile cases like this one might even have a higher risk are not even touched. Let’s stick it to the saudis... and the people of Yemen.

    This kind of veneer foreign policy never works, or rather, never used to work. Dishonesty has always been baked into politics, but politics these days is an 'anything goes' sport, and traditional decorum and diplomatic frameworks that were used and respected for a century are out the window.
    Basing everything on veneer doesn't seem like a lasting solution to anything.

    I'm shocked that you would think that the Trudeau government uses this kind of veneer, superficial politics to score points. I mean, who really buys it?

    Report alleges torture of imprisoned Saudi women's rights activists escalating | CBC News
    I brought this up 2 months ago. Speaking out, rather harshly, about " The Saudi's " got me a 30 day ban from Facebook.
    I think it's TIME for the Canadian Government to start treating The Saudi Government exactly how they treat their own people, let alone international women who go there to raise awareness about their atrocities.
    ANYTHING LESS, is hypocritical and WEAK.
