    I'm no particular fan of Justin Trudeau, either as a personality or a political leader, but I commend the Canadian government for offering this young woman a new home.
    I hope she will be happy in Canada, and build a new life for herself there. The contrast between Canadian society, and that of Saudi Arabia, could not be more stark.

    There are millions of women being oppressed all over the world. Politicians prevent these women from being liberated. They waver at pressures from those who put them in power. Unfortunately, those who claim to stand for women’s rights are also competing for political imminence instead of women’s power. They destroy other women who stand in their way. Wishing the best for this woman.

    It’s sad that the world has to look to Canada for moral and ethical leadership in the world.
