Despite obligatory show of disapproval, Canada’s now a bystander when it comes to Saudi Arabia
Canada is still honouring the biggest arms sale in our history to Saudi Arabia, a regime whose idea of justice is death for dissidents who exercise freedom of the press like Jamal Khashoggi.
Faced with audio recordings of Jamal Khashoggi’s gruesome murder and dismemberment obtained by Turkish authorities, Riyadh next claimed that the dissident journalist died accidentally in a physical confrontation. You know, the usual fatal beating a citizen gets at his consulate when he goes to pick up his marriage papers. Photograph courtesy of Commons Wikimedia
