The Trudeau government says it is trying to find a way to end shipments of armoured vehicles to Saudi Arabia as Riyadh comes under mounting condemnation for the costly war it’s waging in neighbouring Yemen and the murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has previously talked about studying arms sales between Canada and Saudi Arabia and even suspending the export permits that underpin the armoured-vehicle deal as a means of pressing Saudi officials to fully explain Mr. Khashoggi’s slaying.
The article goes on to state the following:
But now the Canadian leader is talking about stopping the shipments for good.
“We are engaged with the export permits to try and see if there is a way of no longer exporting these vehicles to Saudi Arabia,” Mr. Trudeau told CTV’s Question Period Sunday. The Prime Minister’s Office did not offer any further comment but noted that Mr. Trudeau also said Mr. Khashoggi’s murder was “unacceptable,” Canada has been demanding answers from Riyadh and that the contract was first signed by the Harper government.
