Ottawa, ON – Today, Michelle Rempel Garner, Conservative Candidate for Calgary Nose Hill, released the following statement on Justin Trudeau opening the door on recognizing the Taliban as the government of Afghanistan:
“Following the G7 meeting on the situation in Afghanistan, Justin Trudeau opened the door on recognizing the Taliban as the government of Afghanistan, when he said the international community has a list of expectations and demands of the Taliban if they want to be engaged with.
“This is a major change of position for Justin Trudeau who said a week ago that he had “no plans” to recognize the Taliban as the government in Afghanistan.
“An Erin O’Toole Conservative government will never recognize the Taliban as the government of Afghanistan. We call upon Justin Trudeau to address the humanitarian crisis unfolding in the middle of his needless election.
“Canada can’t afford more weak leadership from Justin Trudeau. If you don’t care about standing up for Canadian values on the world stage – you have three parties to choose from. If you do, you only have one – Canada’s Conservatives.”
Secure the future, help elect Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives and get Canada’s economy back on track.
