Canada’s late start in campaigning for the United Nations Security Council led to its defeat to Norway and Ireland, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday. Bloc Quebecois Leader Yves-Francois Blanchet said Thursday the defeat was part of a larger trend in a foreign policy that has failed to get results. That includes not yet securing the release of the flight recorders from January’s shooting down by Iran of an airliner with dozens of Canadians aboard, the deterioration in relations with China and continued arms sales to Saudi Arabia. “The failure of the Trudeau government is very revealing,” said Blanchet.“It has stained Canada’s international prestige.”
