The U.N. Human Rights Council has seen fit to examine and pronounce on Canada’s human-rights record. Iran expressed its grave concern about Canada. So did China: “widespread racial discrimination.” So did Cuba: “racism and xenophobia.” So did North Korea — to wit,I have a hunch that every single one of those countries is looking forward to the day when Justin Trudeau (who, as a babe, was dandled on Commie dictator Castro's knee) will replace Zion-loving Stephen Harper as prime minister.
“We have serious concerns about continued violation of the right to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression, torture and other ill-treatment, racism and xenophobia.”

If the American Left, and the Euros, and others want us to take the U.N. seriously, they’ve got to cut this stuff out. Really.
Canada may be a little shaky on freedom of speech, as Mark Steyn and Ezra Levant can tell you. Canada is politically correct to a fault — emphasis on fault. But the country does not deserve to be lectured to, or even talked to, by monster regimes such as Iran’s, China’s, Cuba’s, and North Korea’s.
