"By selling LAVs to Saudi Arabia, Canada is in effect acting as an agent of U.S. foreign policy." "Traditionally, Canadian arms sales to the Sunni-led kingdom were arranged under the U.S. Foreign Military Sales program. This is the first time Saudi Arabia has done business directly with Canada. And make no mistake, this is a deal between the government of Canada and a serial human-rights abuser, and not, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has sought to characterize it, as one involving “a manufacturing company here in Canada” and the Sunni-led kingdom. So, enough with the hypocrisy." "In selling weapons to Saudi Arabia, Canada is taking sides and making a good buck in the process."
