It seems brutal regimes get a pass when they spout McKenna’s politically correct talking points.
The total absurdity of Catherine McKenna and the Trudeau government talking points on the climate have been exposed.
After Syria joined the Paris Climate Accord, she tweeted the following:
The tweet has since been deleted, but it’s generated a massive backlash across Canada:

Tuesday evening Wall of Shame!! The worst of the worst!
Catherine McKenna, Environment Minister praises Assad for joining Paris Agreement! We can see what she really thinks about human rights! pic.twitter.com/QzwQ1vnHxv

This is reprehensible. Liberal environment minister @cathmckenna is happy to endorse a child murdering monster like Bashar al-Assad, as long as he signs onto virtue signalling about climate change. https://t.co/Zg6GAAV6S6

Trudeau Govt in one tweet.
Butcher Assad: never mind that unpleasantness about gassing kids. You've joined us in empty virtue signalling! pic.twitter.com/bMjC0psYRE

Shame on her. That would be the Syria of Bashar al-Assad, infamous for using sarin gas on his people [a not-so-environmentally-friendly war crime] pic.twitter.com/sP4PHS4ohU

Clearly you were so focused on spewing your propaganda that you forgot about the genocide in Syria. You think that dictator cares about CO2?

What if they kill their people in an environmentally responsible manner? 🤔
… … … Well at least it's a start.

McKenna blames tweet on “staff”
Unsurprisingly, McKenna didn’t take responsibility for the tweet.
Instead, she said “clearly a mistake was made from my Dept Twitter.”
Of course, we have no way of knowing, and McKenna seems to take credit for her other tweets. So, she is expecting the Canadian people to believe that all the “good” tweets from her account are hers, while the ones that backfire are blamed on an unnamed “staffer.”
I don’t think so.
McKenna has made numerous climate blunders in her time in office, and this is just the latest.
It reveals how desperate McKenna and the elites are to have someone – anyone – back up their rhetoric. Despite the growing awareness that the Paris Accord benefits countries like China at the expense of the Western World, and despite the fact that the agreement is already being called “not enough” by those who pushed it in the first place, and it’s only a matter of time before people start asking tougher questions.
So, McKenna and the Trudeau government couldn’t pass up an opportunity to create some “good news,” even if it involved praising the brutal Syrian regime.
