Canada standing up for human rights, says Freeland

"We urge the Saudi authorities to immediately release them and all other peaceful human rights activists".
The Saudi foreign ministry ordered Canada's ambassador, Dennis Horak, to leave the country and called the use of "immediately release" in Canada's tweet "unfortunate, reprehensible, and unacceptable in relations between states".
"In response, foreign ministry spokesman Marie-Pier Baril saidCanada would "always stand up for the protection of human rights, very much including women's rights, and freedom of expression around the world"".
"As of Tuesday August 7, 2018, Saudi Grains Organization (SAGO) can no longer accept milling wheat or feed barley cargoes of Canadian origin to be supplied", a copy of the notice seen by Reuters said.
Canada has asked its worldwide friends to help end a rift between it and Saudi Arabia.
Yes. In 2015, Riyadh recalled its ambassador to Sweden and stopped issuing work visas for Swedes after the European Union member country's foreign minister described a court decision related to Raif Badawi as "medieval" and the kingdom's ruling Al Saud family as presiding over a "dictatorship".
Freeland's comments come a day after Saudi Arabia made the decision in retaliation to a Global Affairs Canada tweet that expressed concerns about the arrests of activists in the kingdom.
Tanks, armored vehicles and parts and motor vehicles accounted for about 45% of Canada's 2016 exports to the kingdom, while crude oil and copper ores comprised about 98% of imports, according to a government report.
How did Saudi Arabia react?
On Monday, Freeland doubled down on the position by saying Canadians expect their government's foreign policy to be guided by their values.
Ms Badawi is known for challenging Saudi Arabia's male guardianship system. "They are the best interlocutor for Canada in the region", he said.
"I think they are concerned because they are uncertain".
She noted it's unclear how numerous students are impacted by the Saudi government's decision to axe their scholarships, but there are options available to help them stay.
The source said Canada had no regrets about speaking out on human rights in Saudi Arabia.
All of which is to say that maybe the United States, 17 years after 9/11 and the missing 28 pages, should really, finally, reconsider its relationship to the repressive, Al Qaeda-dealing Saudi regime.
The issue that led to this diplomatic impasse involves Saudi police arresting human-rights activist Samar Badawi and others last week.
Riyadh has also stopped all medical treatment programmes in Canada and is co-ordinating for the transfer of all Saudi patients from Canadian hospitals to other hospitals outside Canada, the Saudi press agency reported early on Wednesday.
"There are geopolitics at play, particularly the strategic and theocratic rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran".
"It is a significant portion of our barley exports", Dahl said, noting the market had been considered a stable market, noting the industry saw growth potential there given ongoing food sustainability concerns within Saudi Arabia.
