So apparently Saudi Arabia has cut ties with Canada over the Canadian embassy condemning Saudi Arabia's arrest of women's rights activists and urging their release

Saudi Arabia Suspends Ties With Canada Over Activist Row

But woohoo they let women drive! Progress and all that crap!


Canada’s remarks are “an affront to the kingdom that requires a sharp response to prevent any party from attempting to meddle with Saudi sovereignty,” the ministry said.

    Saudi Arabia suspended diplomatic ties and new trade dealings with Canada in response to Canada’s call for the release of women’s rights activists -- a dramatic escalation that highlights the kingdom’s increasingly assertive foreign policy under Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

    Saudi Arabia recalled its ambassador to Ottawa and ordered the Canadian envoy to Riyadh to leave within 24 hours, according to a Foreign Ministry statement. Canada is “seeking greater clarity” about the matter, a spokeswoman for Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said.

    The Saudi Foreign Ministry cited remarks last week by Freeland and the Canadian embassy in Riyadh, criticizing the arrests of women’s rights activists including Samar Badawi. She is a Canadian citizen whose brother Raif Badawi, a blogger who was critical of the government, was already in jail in the kingdom.

    Canada’s remarks are “an affront to the kingdom that requires a sharp response to prevent any party from attempting to meddle with Saudi sovereignty,” the ministry said.

    “The rupture in Saudi diplomatic relations with Canada underscores how the ‘new’ Saudi Arabia that Mohammed bin Salman is putting together is in absolutely no mood to tolerate any form of criticism of its handling of its domestic affairs,”

    The World's Greatest Maple Syrup Heist

    Most canadian read! The maply syrup heist that took place in the Global Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve owned by the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers!

    "To make the plot thicker, this wasn’t any old maple syrup warehouse. It was the Global Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve, a cache managed by the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers. The Federation is the syrup world’s equivalent of OPEC. As a legal cartel, it oversees about 75 percent of the world’s maple syrup supply, maintaining large reserves to control global syrup prices."

    watched a documentary about this ...funniest thing i've seen (disclaimer was not fully "sober")

    On the other countries should start standing up for this shit as they have gotten away with it for too long and as they supply the world with oil everyone shuts up!

    KSA kicked out a nato member .. they haven't learnt anything from the Turkish conundrum. As a middle eastern, you are allowed to think big but your size should always be below cockroach level. Let's wait to see what happens.

    Canada shouldn't restore ties with Saudi Arabia, unless the latter agrees to hold a gay pride in Mecca.
