"We are witnessing a democratic constitutional state such as Canada being shown up and disciplined by Saudi Arabia, a state that tortures [citizens and] shows contempt for human rights", spokesman Martin Lessenthin said. As of next week, the Saudi-owned airline will cease direct flights to and from Toronto and there is at least one report that the government has also ordered state-owned pension funds and banks to sell off Canadian assets.

But its share price plunged when a tweet on 3 August by Canada's foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland sparked an angry response in the kingdom.
