#1  her refusal to call out atrocities by her nation's military against the Rohingya Muslim minority.

An interesting turn of events. She was the darling of the peacenik crowd pretty much forever. Perhaps she regards the Rohingas as an existential threat to her country.

#2 She's really unpopular in Muslim countries like Canada?

#3 Perhaps she isn't even really in control? The Chinese could reinforce their control of Burma as a satellite by having people in the military continue the bullshit oppression (and that's all this really is, the continuation of what they did to the Karen and the Shan now against the Rohinga) and the result is that western governments actually reinforce the power of the military faction by isolating the civilian government.

#4 The Bangladeshis, er "Rohinga" could solve it all by going home. Or by abandoning jihad, but they may have waited too long for that.

#5 Can Trudeau and his ruling coalition get any more petty and trivial? *Fine!* Will he burn her in effigy on the lawn outside of their Parliament next? That will show her!!!
