The attached article by Steve Rennie in The Canadian Press and reproduced in Spanish by Rebelion is worth being looked at critically.
While the current Canadian Conservative government, -ultra - rightist in all its expressions- participates in attacks and bombings against Arab people supporting profit , control of oil and anti-ecological mining ventures for the wealthiest economies, it has been showing more and more regressive human rights for its own indigenous peoples and modest sectors. The purchase and sale of arms is huge and domestic debt - (which in Canada is more than 700 billion dollars and counting !) has hit the middle incomes and the poor. Attempting to "resolve " his crisis by providing support to banks and financial sectors has squeezed the poor and its own 4th World: the Canadian First Nations. Higher Education is now a private matter; health and social security in Canada are getting worse every day while the banking system continues to profit. Banks and their huge profits are priorities in the world. This is also seen in all speculative Third World economies.
An example of collusion that support these shameful situations by the "rich countries” is the attacks on Venezuela. There, the American empire, as he did it in the fifties, when Venezuela introduced the 50-50 partnership for his oil, (50% for Venezuela and 50% for the US companies) or more recently, with Chile when it nationalized its copper in 1973, is today doing his best to make a Coup d’Etat in that country. This model of Coup d’Etat is following very close the "Chilean model” of Nixon and Kissinger in 1973: boycott of the economy, activity of extremists paid by the extreme right and disregarding the democratic elections that have supported the current government of Maduro and for previous governments of Hugo Chavez. (President Carter denounce the US attack on what he called "the most democratic electoral process he had ever witnessed”) Corruption has been a key tool for the US when attacking anyone that has oil or wealth he pretends to control. Venezuela changed the US imposed “partnerhip” by putting an end to the US control of its oil: doing this has generated a huge force to improve the economy and welfare for its people. It is not surprising that most of the US followers in Latin America support the Coup attempts, (similar to what the US launched in 1973 against Chile’s Salvador Allende democratic government). Lackeys as Piñera of Chile and the Mexican Calderon were in Caracas a few weeks ago. Piñera, whose huge fortune was obtained under the protection of Pinochet himself, and of Calderón, former Mexican President who led the country into the worst killings of Mexicans by the police, army and narco organized and tolerated brutal repression. Major slaughter occurred in Mexico during his presidential term. This has been followed in Mexico by an even worse situation, with mass killings and disappearances. All these have occurred as a result of the drug -narco highly profitable business. The crisis in Europe, which is reported more strongly in Greece and Spain is another expression of the same brutal exploitation process of financial and speculative economies. Canada’s association with the worst examples is a sad evidence that facilitates the over- exploitation of its own peoples and of those where Canada forcefully implants immoral mining ventures partnering with lackeys and repressive governments.
