Thank you to every Canadian MP

Here.

The pro-Russia group denies any connection to the Kremlin, but lawmakers say the push fits a pattern of Moscow-backed interference in the West. And they say that the lobbying campaign, which began in 2014 and grew with attacks last spring on Canada’s foreign affairs minister, Chrystia Freeland, highlights the dangers of Russian meddling in Canada.

Nonetheless, the bill passed unanimously in Parliament on Wednesday evening. It allows Canada to sanction, freeze assets or deny entry to foreigners from any country that has violated human rights or engaged in corruption.

    I guess that means that NAFTA will be dead then, too? What about our own human rights violations against generations of First Nations people?

    This is a dumb way to criticize Putin . . . it just makes it easier to call us hypocrites when we continue to sell weapons to the Saudis or encourage trade with China, the Philippines, Thailand, Myanmar. I could go on and on and on and on and on and on…

      Have you read Bill Browder’s book on Magnitsky’s murder, Red Notice? I’m guessing you haven’t.

      I’d love to see you read your post directly to Magnitsky’s widow’s face.

      I’m very happy that the scum who were responsible for killing him will not have access to Canadian banks, etc. Because they’re scum who operate with impunity. I have no idea why you think that’s ok, unless you’re posting from the Kremlin Troll Factory.

    Warren,

    Nothing concentrates the mind more effectively than sanctioning personal and corporate cash. However, when it comes to circumventing, if there’s a will, there’s a way.
