Open Letter to Minister of Foreign Affairs
Chrystia Freeland

 

Picture

Dear Minister Freeland,


We are [I am] outraged by the position the Trudeau government has taken with regard to the escalating conflict in Venezuela. Once again the government has condemned Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, expressing serious concerns over the government’s plan for a Constituent Assembly, saying it’s “contrary to Venezuela’s Constitution”.  This is not only a flagrant interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign nation but is also factually incorrect.  Article 347 and 348 of the Bolivarian Constitution clearly outlines its legitimacy and establishes the president’s right to convoke a National Constituent Assembly.

Ottawa calls for investigation into Saudi Arabia’s apparent use of Canadian-made armoured vehicles against citizens

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland’s department says she is “deeply concerned” that Saudi Arabia’s rulers appear to be deploying Canadian-made armoured vehicles in an escalating conflict with Saudi citizens.

Ms. Freeland has asked officials to investigate the matter. Global Affairs Canada released a statement shortly after The Globe and Mail published a story Friday on the apparent use of Canadian-made combat vehicles in Saudi Arabia’s violence-plagued Eastern Province.

Scientists conducted race-based experiments on San Jose Island where they monitored how mustard gas affected the skin of blacks, Puerto Ricans, Japanese and Caucasians

The U.S. has agreed to destroy chemical bombs left over from a secret U.S.-Canadian test program that conducted mustard-gas experiments on various ethnic groups during the Second World War.

The eight bombs were discovered on San Jose Island, the site of an extensive wartime chemical weapons test program and, later, the location for several seasons of the Survivor reality TV series.

The weapons on the Panamanian island will be destroyed in September.

Canada’s Department of National Defence had warned years ago that Canadian-made mustard gas and other chemical weapons might still be found on the island, according to documents obtained by the Ottawa Citizen through the Access to Information law.

The failure by the U.S. and Canadian governments to commit to cleaning up the contaminated island has angered Panamanian officials for years. The chemical bombs were discovered in 2002 but it has taken until now to get the U.S. to agree to dispose of the weapons.

More than 30,000 chemical bombs were detonated on the island during the U.S.-led program. One report indicated that there could be up to 3,000 bombs still intact and scattered in the jungles on San Jose.

Canadian DND scientists also noted in one report that in 1974 a worker at a construction site on the island suffered burns from a mysterious substance.

Hundreds of abandoned oil and gas wells in Alberta are leaking methane at rates high enough to pose local health and even explosion risks, Andrew Nikiforuk asserts in The Tyee, citing a previously unreleased study by the Alberta Energy Regulator.

“Based on the testing of just 338 wells,” Nikiforuk writes, “the study estimated that 17,000 out of 170,000 abandoned wells in rural Alberta are leaking methane, and that leaks at 3,400 wells could pose a risk to the public.” In addition to being toxic to people and flammable in sufficient concentration, methane is a greenhouse gas many times more potent than carbon dioxide on a short time horizon.

The Alberta regulator’s study closely examined 335 wells close to houses, airports, businesses, and other surface development. It “found that 36 were leaking methane,” Nikiforuk says. “Nine of those were leaking at a level that Alberta Health says poses a risk of neurological damage to nearby residents. Six wells that exceeded the emergency evacuation threshold of 10,000 ppm were outside buildings. Three other hazardous wells had ‘methane leakage inside buildings.’”

The cartoon states that Canada could give marijuana to ISIS to cause the entire militant

insurgence to collapse because of the effects marijuana has on human behavior.

The cartoonist is saying that most other countries are using violence and that is bad because

they are killing innocent people but there is a better solution. The plane is a Hercules, one

of the biggest cargo planes ever. The plane can hold up to 45,000 pounds. The cartoon

shows how much marijuana Canada would have to give ISIS to affect the militant group.

Canada is in the process of legalizing marijuana so they could make this happen!
