Canada Will Sell Weapons to Saudi Arabia, but Says It Might Cancel the Deal After They’re Sold

The Canadian government's rapidly-shifting talking points on their decision to export militarized Light Armored Vehicles (LAVs) to Saudi Arabia has entered a new phase.

Now, Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion is insisting that he would have canceled the deal if he had proof of human rights abuses in the theocratic dictatorship, but he'll be open to retroactively killing the deal at some point in the future if he sees evidence of Riyadh using the Canadian-made weaponized on its own citizens.

been a rough couple of weeks for ya', champ!! :)

Any Canadian attempt to speak out on international efforts to protect human rights will soon be met with skepticism and disdain. One can almost hear it: “Ha! … Says the country that is arming one of the most repressive regimes on Earth.”

Canada takes public pride in valuing the protection of human rights and in maintaining stringent military export controls. But its voice in the arena of human rights will be utterly diminished, if not silenced, as Ottawa ploughs ahead with the implementation of this deal. And it could take decades to repair the damage.
