With questions arising over whether North Korea actually launched an hydrogen bomb, questions are also being raised closer to home over what role Canada can play in this.
Like most other countries, Canada is expressing its outrage over Pyongyang’s claims that North Korea has detonated its first hydrogen bomb.
Foreign Minister Stephane Dion is accusing the rogue nation of “reckless behaviour.”
Meanwhile, Bob Murray from the Frontier Centre for Public Policy says this is a chance for the new Trudeau government’s “Canada is back” approach in diplomatic relations.
“It’s an opportunity for Canada to really take the lead and try to bring the players to the table and to have a different discussion that we haven’t been able to have in the last five, 10 years with this regime.”
The UN Security Council has met in an emergency session to discuss North Korea’s claims.
