Canada investigating Saudi Arabia cracking down on Shia citizens using GDLS Canada LAV's!

via Radio Canada International.
New video footage obtained by Radio Canada International appears to show for the first time Canadian-made Light Armoured Vehicles (LAVs) being deployed by Saudi security forces in an operation to quash resistance by Shia militants in the restless east of the kingdom.

The nine-second video is putting additional pressure on the Liberal government to cancel a multibillion contract to supply the House of Saud with newer and more lethal models of these same vehicles.

The video was supplied to RCI by Saudi activists who claim that it was shot recently in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province in the Shia-dominated city of Awamiyah, which has been under siege by Saudi security forces since May.

RCI and CBC could not independently verify the authenticity of the video footage or its purported location. However, the video’s metadata suggests it was shot in May, just in the beginning of the operation in Awamiyah.
Story and short vid here. 

Canada is weird.  They're all hot and bothered by Saudi Arabia using Canadian vehicles to crack down on Shias.

It's amusing because I've been watching this non-sense and the real story is that Saudi Arabia seems to be teetering on the brink.  No one is talking about it but they're almost acting like they're involved in a civil war, not a simple clearing operation involving a few radicals.

I'm trying to get a little bit of clarity on the situation but the vehicles being used isn't the story.  The house of Saud is in trouble.  They're lashing out in weird ways and again...no one is noticing.
