Canada threatens to cut ties with Uganda over anti-gay bill

By Melanie Nathan, February 17, 2014.

Screen Shot 2014-02-18 at 10.00.49 PMEarlier today I wrote an article calling on President Obama to expel the Ugandan Ambassador to the U.S.A. because President Museveni has declared war with gays of the World, which includes the LGBT people of the United States of America.

It seems the Canadians may be leading the pack on the future isolation of Uganda, as later today this was reported by Ugandan NTV:

The Canadian government has threatened to cut diplomatic ties with Uganda if the Anti Homosexuality bill is signed into law. Ugandan Ambassador Alintuma Nsambu says he was summoned on Monday by the Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister to explain why Canada should not take that step.

Nsambu says if the Anti-gay Bill is signed, several western countries could isolate Uganda.

The ambassador made the feeble excuse in his assertion as to why Uganda should not be cut off, noting: …. As High Commissioner he could do nothing it was the Parliament….!

It seems that the Ambassador fails to understand that he is his Government personified, on international soil, and that when his country breaches the International Declaration of Human Rights and declares war on all gays on the entire world, he better have a damn better answer than that.

    What about Nigeria? Or will Canada and USA back off because of the rich oil resources there?
    Please if you are reading this blog/site contact FIFA and have the Nigerian soccer team withdrawn. FIFA threw South Africa out in the 1960s for racism. This is equally on the scale of human rights.

    I want ALL the LGBT group around the world to untie in this cause. Uganda, South African….and my homeland Jamaica. Last Election they promise to take off this buggery law which criminalize gay men.

    these nation should not be benefiting from grants made possible through GAY taxpayers in any country. I’m gay…and so is my money
