Speaker for the House of Commons Anthony Rota has resigned after embarrassing Justin Trudeau and Canada as a whole. Rota invited Yaroslav Hunka, former 14th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS, to speak to the Canadian Parliament to impress Zelensky. The video of Zelensky and Trudeau giving this former Ukrainian Nazi a standing ovation is circulating the internet.
Trudeau had the opportunity to vet this individual before he arrived in Parliament. He is equally as responsible as Rota, if not more so, since he is the man in charge. Justin Trudeau has refused to recognize the role he played in this debacle. However, he did note that this was an embarrassment for all of Canada, especially amid the Jewish holidays.
In fact, according to Trudeau, Russian aggression and propaganda led him to salute a Nazi on the world stage. Russia has called the claims “outrageous” and “sloppy.” “Such sloppiness of memory is outrageous. Many Western countries, including Canada, have raised a young generation that does not know who fought whom or what happened during the Second World War. And they know nothing about the threat of fascism,” a Kremlin spokesperson said. He is indeed correct as history is continually rewritten.

Blaming Russia was not enough for Trudeau. Anthony Rota was forced to leave his position in shame. “It’s with a heavy heart that I rise to inform members of my resignation as Speaker for the House of Commons,” Rota read aloud to his peers. “I reiterate my profound regret for my error in recognizing an individual in the House during the joint address to Parliament of President Zelensky,” he continued, noting, “that public recognition has caused pain to individuals and communities including the Jewish community in Canada and around the world, in addition to survivors of Nazi atrocities in Poland, among other nations.”
Obviously, Zelensky did not apologize or discuss the connection between the Nazi Party and current branches of Ukraine’s military. Justin Trudeau humiliated himself here. Canadians see that he threw Rota under the bus as a scapegoat for the whole incident, and no one respects a person incapable of accepting blame. The video will live on in the archives of the internet and everyone will remember the day Trudeau and Zelensky saluted and cheered a Nazi.
