RADIO CANADA INTERNATIONAL – By Lynn Desjardins – Saudi blogger Raif Badawi will not be granted Canadian citizenship, reports the Globe and Mail newspaper, because Canada’s foreign affairs minister does not believe that would help free him from a prison in Saudi Arabia. Minister Stephane Dion told the paper Saudia Arabia does not recognize dual citizenship so Canadian citizenship might not help, but he added that if Badawi is freed he will be given sanctuary in Canada.
