Canada loses bid for UN Security Council seat despite Trudeau’s relentless Israel bashing

73

Another humiliating defeat for Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. PM Trudeau desperately wants Canada to have a seat on the pro-jihad UN Security Council, so that he could elevate his own personnel prestige. To ensure that Canada received this coveted seat, Trudeau viciously threw Canada’s longtime ally Israel under the bus. Yet despite Trudeau’s shameless pandering, Canada was still rejected in favor of Ireland and Norway. Under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Canada is a disgraceful joke!

Canada loses bid for UN Security Council seat despite Trudeau’s push

By Fox News, June 17.2020

Canada on Wednesday lost out to two European countries for a seat on the United Nations Security Council, after Norway and Ireland were picked to join the U.N.’s powerful decision-making body instead.

Canada was passed over despite a strong push from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, according to The Associated Press.

The elections were reportedly held under unorthodox circumstances due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A two-thirds majority of 128 votes were required to win a seat. Norway received 130, Ireland got 128 votes and Canada was only able to pull in 108.

This marked Canada’s second consecutive defeat in a bid to win a seat, as the country will once again go home empty-handed.

Having a seat on the U.N. Security Council typically gives a nation a more powerful say in global affairs and allows it to be more involved when the organization is dealing with international threats.

The five permanent members of the Security Council are the United States, China, Russia, France and Britain. Having permanent status means a nation can exercise veto power over any substantial resolution.

Canadian Foreign Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne declined to speak with The AP, but said he’s proud of the country’s efforts over the past several years “to renew and strengthen many of our bilateral relations.”
