Canadians surprised by the prince's alleged clout

Interesting lawsuit in Canadian courts, all is "alleged" but after what happened to journalist Jamal Khashoggi, I am not sure if allowing women to drive, amongst his other "reforms" is worth the price of his quelling any opposition he may have both in his own country and worldwide https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/saudi-crown-prince-sent-hit-squad-to-canada-lawsuit-alleges-1.5053833
The crown prince no doubt is ruthless but he is also the man who took on the corruption of his own extended family and is slowly modernising the country. Women would not be allowed the drive if it wasn't for him. So yes he is brutal and possibly mixed up in all sorts of things no Western leader could get away with but he also is trying to modernise the country and open it up and has to deal with orthodoxy, corruption and those wanting everything done yesterday. Not an easy task.
Oh,dear!! I wish the king a speedy recovery and a very long life! He is, at least for now,
all that stands between himself and his ruthless Crown Prince.
He seems to be doing okay. He has chairedd a cabinet meeting from hospital.
