Canadian Parliament Honors Nazis Who Fought In World War II Leader Opposition Trudeau
Canada Internal Politics: Canada’s Leader of Opposition Pierre Poilievre has once again criticized Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau. He has asked PM Justin Trudeau to apologize for meeting and honoring a former ‘combatant’ of the 14th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS (a Nazi division).
Poilievre wrote on Twitter that the Liberals (Justin Trudeau’s party) recognized Nazi ‘veterans’ in the House of Commons during Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s visit to Canada this week. The Canadian opposition leader called it a big mistake on Trudeau’s part. Poilievre alleged that the Prime Minister’s Office is responsible for such incidents.
Poilievre gave this tweet in response to the human rights group Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center. The human rights group wrote on Twitter: “FSWC is shocked that the Parliament of Canada gave a standing ovation to a Ukrainian man who served in a ‘Nazi military unit’ accused of mass murder of Jews and others during World War II. Did.”
However, seeing this matter gaining momentum, Speaker of the House of Commons of Canada, Anthony Rota, has apologized. He said that this was his personal decision. He said, “I did not know much about the person, after getting information later I regretted my decision.” Along with this he also apologized to the Jews.
“Yaroslav Hunka, a 98-year-old immigrant from Ukraine, was honored by House of Commons Speaker Anthony Rota as a ‘Ukrainian Canadian War Hero of World War II.'” ‘a veteran who fought for Ukraine’s independence against the Russians’ and described him as a Ukrainian hero and a Canadian hero, ignoring the fact that the Ukrainian man Hunka served in the 14th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS, a Nazi military unit with a history of committing crimes against humanity during the Holocaust.”
Canadian opposition leader also asked for evidence from Trudeau on allegations against India
Earlier, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau was questioned by Pierre Poilievre after accusing India of killing Khalistani terrorist Nijjar. He had said that the PM should have come forward with the facts, if he could not present the facts then he would become a cause for confusion.
Pierre had said, “I think the Prime Minister (Trudeau) needs to come forward with all the facts. We need to know all the possible evidence so that the citizens of Canada can take a decision on this.” “He hasn’t presented any facts, he’s just made a statement. He hasn’t told me any more privately than he has told Canadians publicly. So we want to know more information.”
