Saudi students' year at UPEI in question

Saudi students' year at UPEI in question”

The image was noticed by social media users who pointed out the bad taste of the image, as well as Saudi Arabia's possible involvement with some of the individuals involved in the original 9/11 attacks.

Since Monday social media has been saturated by the surprising news that Saudi Arabia made a decision to expel the Canadian ambassador, along with freezing trade and investment ties with Canada.

Shortly after, the image was deleted and an apology was posted for the "inappropriate" image.

The flights to Toronto Pearson International Airport will be suspended beginning August 13, according to the announcement the carrier published on its Twitter. And they sent that tweet, which, given the very strong case that people in the Saudi government helped make 9/11 happen, is pretty bonkers.

Saudi Arabia says its responding to a tweet from Ottawa's Global Affairs ministry calling for the "immediate release" of jailed human rights activists in the country, comments Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland has defended.

That would be the same Saudi prince whose recent stay at a Trump hotel single-handedly put the place back in the black after two years of losing money.

On Monday, the Saudi foreign ministry tweeted: 'The kingdom announces that it is recalling its ambassador to Canada for consultation.

Canada has said it is "gravely concerned" about the arrests and has called for those detained to be released immediately.

Following the diplomatic tensions flare-up between Saudi Arabia and Canada on Monday, Saudis went to social media to express their support for their courageous government.

KSA gave the Canadian ambassador 24 hours to leave the country, in an abrupt rupture of relations over what it slammed as "interference" in its internal affairs.

A number of rights campaigners, including award-winning gender rights activist Samar Badawi, have been arrested in the kingdom.
