    Canada is gravely concerned about additional arrests of civil society and women’s rights activists in #SaudiArabia, including Samar Badawi. We urge the Saudi authorities to immediately release them and all other peaceful #humanrights activists.


    Statement from Global Affairs Canada

    #Statement | KSA through its history has not and will not accept any form of interfering in the internal affairs of the Kingdom. The KSA considers the Canadian position an attack on the KSA and requires a firm stance to deter who attempts to undermine the sovereignty of the KSA.


    Response from Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

    Plus: withdrawing ambassador, freezing trade and expelling Canadian ambassador to Saudi Arabia


    ETA: And now this...

    The Saudis are learning from the Orange Dotard.

    When someone walks across your lawn, threaten to kill their children and burn down their house.

    Proportionality--not!

    And they can also be sure that Trump doesn't side with Canada because they let him touch the orb. (And because Trump is Trump)

    That wasn’t a man in the street. It was Boris Johnson, the political equivalent of an antibiotic resistant STD that just keeps coming back: Boris Johnson's burqa remarks 'fan flames of Islamophobia', says MP

    A little more clarity.
    The Crown Prince is pissed because Jared Kushner got him in trouble with his dad.

    Trudeau must immediately travel to SA and pet their orb to defuse this potential catastrophic diplomatic dispute.

    DJT and MBS are BFFs now and when “Justin from Canada” stabbed DJT in the back, MBS promised DJT that he would pull Justin’s hair and make him cry ...

    No no!!
    This should be done at Head of State level. Our head of state should go and discuss it with the dad, i.e. King Salman. There is the problem that our actual head of state is a 94 year old woman who really isn't up to travel, and the Viceregal representative for Canada is a rather feisty woman ex-astronaut who doesn't put up with a lot of shit. Like headscarves.

    The State Department made its first comments on the dispute between Saudi Arabia and Canada in a statement to HuffPost that signaled the U.S. will not take sides.

    “We are aware of Government of Saudi Arabia’s statement recalling the Saudi ambassador to Canada and expelling Canada’s ambassador,” a State Department official wrote in an email Monday afternoon. “Canada and Saudi Arabia are both close allies of the United States. I refer you to the Canadian and Saudi Ministries of Foreign Affairs for further information.”

    Saudi Arabia is not, in fact, a treaty ally of the U.S. ― though Canada, a member of NATO, is.

    Nice to know that the US regime was willing to go out on a limb for us like that.

    Actually nobody here expected any support.

    Thank you, government of Canada, for taking a principled stand.

    Something to ask the Dotard.

    "Rather than respecting the Canadian alliance, you choose to go with Saudi Arabia who actively supports Al Qaida in Yemen. Care to explain that one?"
