Justin Trudeau Backs UN Peacekeeping Mission in Ukraine...

Given Canada's clear bias in favour of the installed Nazi oligarchy in Kiev, one assumes CF participation in any 'peacekeeping' operation would necessarily be a non-starter.

"“Now when it comes to weapons systems and lethality, it can’t be looked at in that manner. We have to look at it in terms of any type of system that you provide, you have to look at what type of capacity is needed to be able to use it as well. So, we’re looking at a much more thorough plan of helping the Ukrainian armed forces to be able to modernize with their command and control structure, their sustainment system as well. So, our discussion is not just strictly about a shopping list of systems. It’s about building the capacity.”

More Drumbeat For Western Military Intervention Into Ukraine Under The Guise of 'Peacekeeping'  - By Roger Annis

On Target: Canada Drawn Into The Puzzling Politics of Ukraine  - by Scott Taylor

http://thechronicleherald.ca/opinion/1527923-on-target-canada-drawn-into...

"...While Freeland purports to support the people of Ukraine, it must be noted that Poroshenko presently has just a two-per-cent approval rating; allowing for a margin of error, this equals to zero. Then there is Saakashvili, who is presenting himself as his adopted country's anti-corruption saviour, while unable to return to his own country where he is himself wanted for corruption. And somehow this is all Russian President Putin's fault?"

 

Kiev Hails US and Canada For Greenlighting Lethal Arms Supplies That Could Kill Ukraine Peace Process

https://on.rt.com/8upd

"By including Ukraine on the list of countries approved for lethal weapons sales, Canada has become a side in a bloody civil war, undermining a shaky peace process, a senior Russian senator said, as Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko applauded the move. 'As it was agreed, the United States authorized sending assistance for our country and Canada included Ukraine into the Automatic Firearms Country Control List. The door to enhanced defense assistance for Ukraine has been opened.'

This makes Canada a party to the conflict, says Frank Klintsevich. 'A very dangerous precedent has been created. Effectively Canada has become a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict with all ensuing consequences. And this, above all, means that it assumes responsibility for the actions of the Ukrainian forces trained by Canadian instructors and equipped with Canadian weapons..."

Canadian Arms Makers Get OK To Sell To Ukraine

http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/canada-ukraine-weapons-1.4446891

"The Liberal cabinet has given the green light for Canadian defence contractors to sell weapons to Ukraine in a watershed decision which a senior official of that country hopes will influence the Trump administration to follow suit. The decision was made on Nov 23, according to a cabinet order posted online. It was released publicly on Wednesday, as the House of Commons prepared to rise for Christmas break.  The move puts Canada out ahead of the United States which has been considering its own weapons sales.

In a statement, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said the decision reflects closer ties between Canada and Ukraine. Both Project Ploughshares and Amnesty International Canada opposed the plan..."

How's this for an email to the embassy.

To whom it may concern.

The pro-Palistine Twitter account Electronic Intifada says that Israel is arming neo-nazis in Ukraine. I'm sure you'll understand my confusion as why you're giving them weapons. Hasn't anyone considered the neo NAZIs might use these weapons against Israel?!  Please explain immediately.

 

As for the meeting, I'd sooner ask the MND why we gave Ukraine (30'000) uniforms and hundreds of sleeping bags when our own soldiers are going without, even though it was under the conservatives and not him.

 I think that to be accurate I would say ultra-nationalist fascists. I'm not found of comparing everything to the Nazi's because it is not descriptive enough of the actual ideology for the random ill informed reader. It is the combination of ethnic based nationalism and oligarchic control inherent in the Ukrainian system that is evil and that is without any gas chambers.
