Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced Sunday that Canada will impose a range of sanctions to penalize Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi for his brutal repression of protesters in that country. Canada has joined the United Nations in implementing: An arms embargo to stop the sale and shipment of weapons to and from Libya, the inspection of cargo going into Libya, and a travel ban on Gadhafi and 15 individuals who are “closely associated” with him — his sons, daughter and loyalists. Canada will also impose an asset freeze and prohibit financial transactions with the government of Libya, its institutions and agencies, and the Libyan Central Bank.
