Five were arrested, Mr. Speaker. The rest were not and none of them were pepper sprayed.
Surely it is the responsibility of the Prime Minister to stand up for human rights, at least at home, and not to fluff the pillow for some foreign dictator.
What Canadians do not understand is why the Prime Minister went to such extraordinary lengths for a foreign dictator who is reviled in his own country, even suppressing the rights of Canadians in order to protect him simply from embarrassment.
The next time the government invites a brutal dictator to Canada, does the Prime Minister intend to conduct himself in the same way?
