The Canadian government has pulled a number of military export licenses to Turkey over concerns that Canadian technology was used not in accordance with foreign policy.

In response, the Turkish government criticized Canada for having a “double standard” as the Canadian government continues to sell military equipment to Saudi Arabia.

Sam Eskenasi discusses the potential fallout and why the Canadian government needs to work on a more coherent foreign policy agenda.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
