Except that AECL isn't dealing with the people of these nations, they're dealing with their governments (and in the case of India, several decades ago). And the evidence shows that all three of these nations did in fact seek (and have all since obtained) nuclear weapons. They're all known for being fantastically corrupt and taking terms Neo-Colonialism to whole new levels. The other two nations prominently mentioned in AECL's dealings at the time are South Korea and Argentina, both of which also fit this description, especially then.

There are a lot of leftists out there willing to play apologist for the Chinese, Indian and Pakistani governments. I'm not one of them.

I'm not saying we should go to war with these nations, nor that we should embargo them or cease giving aid. A higher standard needs to apply when we're handing out technology which can be used to develop nuclear weapons. Once a state has them, it's very hard to get them back.
