Singh calls on Trudeau to part ways with U.S., Brazil on Venezuela crisis

'It is shameful that the government ... and Justin Trudeau, is lining up with Donald Trump': Svend Robinson



NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is calling on the Liberal government to abandon its decision to side with the U.S. and Brazil over the crisis in Venezuela — hours after two NDP candidates and one MP came out with much stronger statements condemning Ottawa's move as failing to stand up for Venezuelans.

Singh issued the short statement outlining his position Thursday after NDP MP Niki Ashton and candidate Jessa McLean joined candidate Svend Robinson in attacking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his government for making common cause with the Trump administration and the right-wing government of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil over Venezuela.

"Canada should not simply follow the U.S.'s foreign policy, particularly given its history of self-interested interference in the region," Singh said in a statement.

"The question of who is to lead Venezuela should be in the hands of Venezuelans. All countries should be free to make their own democratic decisions through free and fair elections, independent of authoritative pressure or foreign interference."

An NDP official speaking on background told CBC News that the party condemns the actions of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, calling him a thug, but would not cut ties with the leader and would continue to recognize his government.

Venezuela is a major oil producer that has been wracked by hyperinflation, food shortages and rising violent crime since Maduro came to power in 2013. Maduro's government accuses the U.S. and others of launching an "economic war" against Venezuela, blaming foreign sanctions against his country for most of its problems.

On Wednesday, Juan Guaido, the Venezuelan opposition leader and head of the National Assembly, swore himself in as interim president and was quickly recognized as such by Canada, the U.S. and other nations, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Colombia.

Bolivia, Cuba, Turkey, Mexico and Russia, among others, have not followed suit and continue to back Maduro as the rightful president, accusing the U.S. and others of interfering in Venezuela's internal affairs.

Support for the constitution

Guaido maintains that articles 233, 333 and 350 of the country's constitution allow him to assume interim power because, he said, Maduro's presidency is invalid.

Article 333, for example states that the constitution of Venezuela does not become invalid if it ceases to be observed by an act of force or is repealed.

Article 350 goes on to say that the people of Venezuela should ignore any regime, legislation or authority that contravenes democratic values, principles and guarantees, or undermines human rights.

Guaido has called on officers in the army to defend the constitution but has stopped short of advocating military-induced regime change.

"We're not asking you to stage a coup d'etat, we're not asking you to shoot. On the contrary, we're asking you not to shoot us, to defend together with us the rights of our people," Guaido said in a video message directed to the country's military.

#HandsOffVenezuela: Ashton

​Late Wednesday, Singh published a broad statement on his Twitter feed saying Canada should work with "regional partners to provide support" for the humanitarian crisis unfolding in the country but stopped short of saying Canada should abandon its support for Guaido.

Early Thursday, he issued a much stronger statement after Ashton tweeted that Bolsonaro was a "fascist" and Robinson told reporters that the Brazilian president was a "thug" despite having won the presidency in a democratic election.

Ashton and Robinson also charged that Canada's decision to recognize Guaido as interim president is tantamount to supporting a military takeover of the Venezuelan government.

"PM Trudeau sides with [U.S. President Donald] Trump's regime change agenda and Brazil's fascist President in support of someone calling for a military coup in Venezuela," Ashton said on Twitter.

"No! We cannot support an agenda of economic or military coups. #HandsOffVenezuela."

Robinson said it is hypocritical of the Trudeau government to advocate for democracy in Venezuela while failing to make the same call for countries such as Saudi Arabia.

"It is shameful that the government of Canada, and Justin Trudeau, is lining up with Donald Trump, with the authoritarian thug [Jair] Bolsonaro, the president of Brazil, and is in-fact recognizing a coup, an illegal coup," he said. "This is not respecting the people of Venezuela."

Their comments echoed remarks made by NDP candidate Jessa McLean, who suggested that the Liberals' move was undemocratic.

Robinson said that Canada should abandon its current policy and seek a solution to the crisis through the international community.

"Work with the United Nations and let's try to find a mechanism so that the voices of the people of Venezuela are heard," Robinson said. "Does that mean another election? It may be, it may be. But standing in support of an illegal coup is shameful and unacceptable."

Ben Rowswell, Canada's former ambassador to Venezuela, told CBC News Network's Power & Politics on Thursday that backing Guaido and the National Assembly is standing with the only democratically elected institution left in the country while striking its own path.

"Canada is not following what the United States is doing," he said. "The United States, irresponsibly, has said that they would be willing to consider all options to address the situation in Venezuela — including military, which is outrageous and wrong."

Aside from its recognition of Guaido, Canada is taking steps to work with its allies to find a resolution to the Venezuelan crisis. In February or March Canada will host a meeting of the Lima group of countries to discuss the issue.

The group was formed in the summer of 2017 and includes Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Guyana and Saint Lucia.

Rowswell noted that the U.S. is not a part of the Lima group and has been on the sidelines while Canada as been working with Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina and Chile to resolve the Venezuela problem.

"The United States is not even at the table, but because president Trump tends to get a lot of press as soon as he opens up his mouth, all of a sudden it becomes a U.S. story," he said.

Back it up.

He's a lawyer, you're a bum. He's the leader of a federal party of Canada, you have always been the loser in the back. He has a nice smile, you have false teeth. He knows how to tie a turban, you haven't figured out shoelaces. He's got a beautiful wife, car, house and you think peanut butter is a super food.

Pssst!

I think he is retired, which I can tell you leaves a person with a certain amount of extra time. If that is the case, who would the fakenews loser be then?

This looks like the US doing the usual to a country trading oil in something other than dollars. Maduro had the "PETRO" digital currency. ALL of the stuff they have claimed about any other leader doing that sort of thing has always been total garbage unfit for even brain dead slugs to consume.

What Hope Is There For Petro Cryptocurrency As Venezuela’s Maduro Faces Opposition Due To The Country’s Failing Economy

Like all the times Assad was accused of using poison gas and it always turned out to be the US Israeli backed IsU$,or Iraq and Iran and oil for euros, or with Qaddafi and his gold backed dinars. I hear the rebels started their own oil bourse, AND foreign owned central bank, and now have nice slave trading markets all over the place to sell of the minorities and children Hitlary loved so much she "she came, she saw, he died!!! cackle cackle cackle."

Yeah, FAKENEWS just like the Covington catholic kids.

So, YUPPERs let's bring democracy down on all the peeples. They gots oil and CHILDREN!!!!

For example here is some democracy being brought down right here:

Misjudging people and what they think on their race is "racism" for those of you who don't know. Now in Canada, when it is WRITTEN, "THEY" are using it to shut down the anti trudeau press. Which this muchly conservative site will be considered as when dollars come to be donuts, and the rudder hits the road.


A non-binding motion condemning Islamophobia and all forms of religious discrimination has easily passed the House of Commons.

M-103, tabled by Liberal backbencher Iqra Khalid in December, passed by a vote of 201-91 Thursday. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was not in the House to vote.

Hmmm, did he feel that way when the NDP received foreign campaign assets from Obama? And I sure didn't hear him whining about the interference in our last election by Obama and Garbage Soros and his Red Tide Foundation.

'It is shameful that the government ... and Justin Trudeau, is lining up with Donald Trump': Svend Robinson. 'Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta check out a ring I really like and want.'


Robinson pleaded guilty to theft over $5,000 in 2004 after stealing an engagement ring valued at $64,000 from an auction, but he said he suffered from a mental health disorder and received a conditional discharge.

The election in Venezuela is highly suspicious.

The entire situation is a cluster-phuk.

But even Trump can be right (or his people convince him to be right) now and again.

When you side with a dictator and do so just because you don't like some other nation's azzhole leader, that says more about you than the nation you're against. Especially if he's right (for a change)

CONGRATULATIONS to Jagmeet Singh for PROVING that he is an even more idiot Socialist air head than his competitor the idiot Boy Justin Trudope!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!


Singh apparently thinks Our idiot Boy is being to harsh on the Socialist Bullies of Venezuela!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!



And yet-- consider the LIE-beral position on Venezuela::::::


Here is an article illustrating how carefully and completely LIE-berals excuse the failings of Socialism! And their NITWIT NDP cousins are even worse! With some comments of my own in brackets):

Freeland right to call out Venezuela.

MALKIN: The border wall — a monument for the people, not the politicians

It’s time for a game of “guess who said it?” Read the below quote and try to guess who in Canada said the following just last Friday:

“Today, Nicolás Maduro’s regime loses any remaining appearance of legitimacy. Having seized power through fraudulent and anti-democratic elections held on May 20, 2018, the Maduro regime is now fully entrenched as a dictatorship. The suffering of Venezuelans will only worsen should he continue to illegitimately cling to power.”

Could it be Conservative leader Andrew Scheer? Or some centre-right political pundit? Maybe one of your favourite Sun columnists?

After all, this is a pretty firm condemnation of the socialist leader of Venezuela, a country that’s been sliding into economic hell thanks first to Hugo Chavez and then his successor, Maduro.

Here’s the answer: Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland. That’s right, a leading cabinet minister in the Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The same Trudeau who previously said he admires China’s “basic dictatorship” and who with “deep sorrow” eulogized Fidel Castro for his “tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people”.

The same government that seems to have little problem with socialist and Communist regimes that make life difficult for their own people. That’s why it was a pleasant surprise to read Freeland was the author of those powerful words.

(Well yes- Our idiot Boy and his loser LIE-berals follow STANDARD SOVIET TEACHING in this matter! In their view Socialism is NEVER WRONG! Any failing is always blamed on an individual or SMALL GROUP that has betrayed the Socialist Ideals! Blaming Maduro without condemning his socialist system is only deflecting blame since ALL Socialist govts eventually fall into economic disaster! And then they try to resolve their troubles with REPRESSION!)

(Always deceptive socialists and LIE-berals will grudgingly admit SMALL failings of Socialism - putting blame on a few individuals in order to halt and to deflect the larger condemnation that ALL Socialist policy deserves!!!)

It’s true she did not offer a wholesale denouncement of socialism but her assessment of Maduro was fair and honest.

(As I have said- types like Freeland BELIEVE in Socialism and will not condemn it! Maduro may be sacrificed and made into the scape goat for socialist FAILURES!!!!)

In fact, Freeland reiterated that Canada has sanctions against dozens of Venezuelan officials and has called for the situation to be referred to the International Criminal Court.

(So Cdn LIE-berals KNOW that Venezuela is a Socialist Inspired Train Wreck- but would rather NOT admit it!)

The government is right to take a stand on these issues, not just in word but in action. And the sanctions are a good way to go about that.

But while Freeland’s words matter, Trudeau’s matter even more. To date, he’s denounced the crisis only as “the failure of leadership in Venezuela.”

(Oh that pesky individual leader undermining grand INFALLIBLE Socialism!)

In comparison, to give but one example, President Trump has said, “virtually everywhere socialism or communism has been tried, it has produced suffering, corruption and decay.”

It would be great if Trudeau came out swinging not just against Maduro, but the dreadful and failed ideology of socialism as well.

(That will NEVER HAPPEN! Our idiot Boy comes from a family DEDICATED to Socialist Ideals!!! Papa Pierre Trudeau heaped fawning praise on Chinese Soviet leader Mao for what Pierre called Mao`s genius in rushing 30 million Chinese to the gallows”!)

(And idiot brother Sacha Trudeau has written a new introduction to Pierre`s book- “Two Innocents in Red China” in which the murderous “genius of Mao” is praised! And Sacha then proceeded to write that notorious “love letter to Castro” that was printed with a straight face by Toronto Red Star and later wildly lampooned by National Post- Sacha told us that bloody handed Cuban Soviet dictator Castro was “the greatest and bravest South American leader of the 20th century and far superior to any merely elected leader”!)

(And the capper to this Soviet propaganda crapper is Our idiot Boy praising “the way the Chinese get things done”- while totally IGNORING the long history of savage repression that occurs in China - including ignoring the 30 million murdered peasants that his father made mention of in his book!!!!! Repression is a just way of life in every Soviet governed country!!!!!)

(Though Our idiot Boy will NEVER admit this ugly truth about socialism for fear of derailing his efforts to achieve the dream spoken of by Pierre Trudeau - to take Canada from the past into the future via the route of radical Socialism!)

(Pierre Trudeau WARNED US! But the civil service union Hogs and other specially ENTITLED groups jumped on the Socialist bus in exchange for GRAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(WE are being lied to about LIE-beral values and goals! And the recent LIE-beral announcements regarding a $600 million dollar fund to be handed out to Cdn media “that LIE-berals trust” is being bolstered by new announcements regarding a committee of civil service union Hogs dedicated go out censoring Fake News!!!!!!! But of course LIE-berals CANNOT DEFINE Fake News- except to vaguely tell us is it is news that is unfair- TO LIE-berals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(This is how FAILED Soviet govts defend their record- by re-writing the history books as the Chinese Soviets do to make their record LOOK BETTER! And this is the form of govt Our idiot Boy publicly ADMIRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(GOD HELP US ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
