Rahi lashes out at politicians from Canada

Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Beshara Boutros Rahi, currently in Halifax, Canada, criticized the political class in Lebanon, saying: "Lebanese officials do more harm than good."

Speaking to a number of Lebanese community members in Canada, Rahi praised the annual visits of Lebanese expatriates to Lebanon.

"The annual visits of the Lebanese [residing abroad] have significant implications on the interior, which denotes a permanent attachment to the homeland and investment in it," he said.

Finally, the Prelate deemed that the lack of the domestic opportunity pushes many young Lebanese to consider emigration.
