At the risk of being boring, here is another sad story of a Canadian with an arab name being abanonded by her country; and the shameful, callous behavoir of Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon along with the embassies and high-commissions under his watch.
The Hon. Lawrence Cannon should do the honourable thing and resign. Failing that, he should be fired. This would happen in Britain. The press would be screaming for his head.
Suaad Hagi Mohamud, Aboufsian Abdelrazik. Maher Arar, Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad Elmaati, Muayyed Nureddin. Does anyone see a pattern here?
Cannon has called the shots. It's called Crown perogative in this country. Lately, Canada's justice system has corrected what seems to be systemic racism behavior by our government. Crown Perogative is in serious need of some new checks and balances.
Lawrence Cannon should resign.
