Hand-wringing and soul-searching as Canadian media discover we sucked up to one of the worst human rights violators to sell them armoured cars


Yup, apparently Canada made a deal a year and a half ago to sell 5,000 armoured personnel carriers to the Saudis.

That was described by our Foreign Minister of the time, one John Baird, as our biggest export "win" ever!

This blog and plenty of other sources flagged that deal at the time as highly dodgy, to put it mildly.

Nice to see that the Globe and Mail and the CBC are catching up!
