Canada Slaps Sanctions On Zimbabwe

From the Less Talk, More Action file:

[CBC] The federal government has imposed targeted sanctions against Zimbabwe, slamming what it says is the regime’s violation of human rights and “perversion of a legitimate democratic process.”

“Since the election on March 29, and the presidential runoff on June 27, the government of Zimbabwe has subjected opposition supporters to intimidation and state-sponsored violence, and has made no visible effort to improve the lives of its citizens,” Foreign Affairs Minister David Emerson said in a statement on Friday.
