    1. "China's sanctions are an attack on transparency and freedom of expression - values at the heart of our democracy," Trudeau wrote in a tweet Saturday, shortly after the new sanctions were announced. "We stand with Parliamentarians against these unacceptable actions, and we will continue to defend human rights around the world with our international partners."....

    The foreign ministry's statement released Saturday said that Gayle Manchin, head of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (and Senator Joe Manchin's wife), would not be permitted to visit China's mainland, Hong Kong or Macao, nor engage in financial dealings with China. Also included in the sections are commission vice chair Tony Perkins and Chong....

    2. ...During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the belief in progress and in white superiority was taken for granted throughout the Western world. Many English-speaking Canadians believed that Anglo-Saxon peoples, and British principles of government, were the apex of biological evolution and that Canada's greatness depended on its Anglo-Saxon heritage (see Imperialism). Their assessment of a group's desirability therefore varied almost directly with the degree its members conformed to British culture and physical type. British and American immigrants were regarded as the most desirable, followed by northern and western Europeans, central and eastern Europeans and then by Jews and southern Europeans....

    Because of discriminatory legislation and social practices in BC, Chinese, Japanese and South Asians could not vote, practise law or pharmacy, be elected to public office, serve on juries, or have careers in public works, education or the civil service. Public opinion on Asian immigration was expressed on several occasions in violent anti-Chinese and anti-Asian riots. The most serious riots were in Vancouver in 1887 and 1907. Various attempts were also made by anti-Asian groups to exclude Asians from public schools, to restrict the sale of land to Asians and to severely limit the number of licences issued to Japanese fishermen. In 1892 and 1907 smaller scale anti-Chinese riots also occurred in Alberta, Québec, Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan when legislation was passed prohibiting white women from working in restaurants, laundries and any other businesses owned by Chinese or Japanese Canadians.

    Black Canadians also faced a similar widespread pattern of discrimination in housing, employment and access to public services during the late 19th century and early-to-mid-20th century. They had difficulty being served in hotels and restaurants, and in being admitted to theatres and swimming pools. On occasion they were forced into segregated schools, particularly in Nova Scotia and Ontario, where Black Canadians were most concentrated. The discrimination against Black people occasionally erupted into violence. In both world wars, armed forces units were reluctant to accept Black, Chinese, Japanese and South Asian enlistees, although some from each group did eventually serve....

    3. Canada’s role in the forced and coerced sterilization of Indigenous women has only recently begun to emerge within a more complete and historical context. As researchers continue to dig through historical records to examine the extent to which First Nations women were sterilized without their informed consent since confederation, a new Saskatchewan lawsuit has opened another chapter to this shocking legacy, garnering at least 60 additional reports in its wake—at least one verified case occurring as recent as 2017....

    After a six year investigation, The Truth and Reconciliation Commission concluded that:

    The Canadian government pursued this policy of cultural genocide because it wished to divest itself of its legal and financial obligations to Aboriginal people and gain control over their lands and resources. If every Aboriginal person had been ‘absorbed into the body politic’, there would be no reserves, no treaties and no Aboriginal rights....

    4. Washington (CNN) -- Peter Navarro, a trade adviser to President Donald Trump, escalated the White House's rebuke of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling him weak and dishonest on Sunday.

    "There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door," Navarro said on "Fox News Sunday."

    He continued, "And that's what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference. That's what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One."....

    5. Despite the fact that he had never been elected to work as the "Me First" president's top trade adviser in an "office" at the White House, Peter Navarro had the guts to reserve "a special place in hell" for Justin Trudeau. The Canadian prime minister did not curse back in response as his country traditionally plays second fiddle to its powerful neighbour.

    In addition to alienating numerous colleagues, corporate executives and prominent Republicans with his harsh manner and disregard for protocol, the crackpot trade adviser also accused Joe Biden of election fraud and proclaimed Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), “Wrong about Everything.”

    The US, UK, EU and Canada treat other countries as punching bags for not adopting their so-called values but cry foul at any retaliation. Either the Canadian leader and other hypocritical politicians have never learned history in school or are turning a blind eye to their countries' shameful history of genocide of Red Indians and discrimination of ethnic minorities.
