Common Frontiers program director Raul Burbano.
Our ally Common Frontiers is calling on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to rethink his policy towards Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's government.
The Latin American news service Telesur reports, "Canada is one of the main countries spearheading the antagonist campaign against the Chavista government in Venezuela. Amid the ongoing right-wing induced crisis in Venezuela, a coalition of labor groups and activists in Canada have urged the federal government to rethink its policy towards the socialist South American country. ...Slamming Ottawa's policy on Venezuela, [Common Frontiers program director Raul] Burbano said Canada needs to be fair and play an even-handed role in resolving the political impasse in Venezuela."
Burbano says, "I think the government of Canada should make clear its support for the constitutional government, electoral democracy and rule of law in Venezuela, and support mediation by organizations that are neutral."
