MAKING WAR: CANADA’S FOREIGN POLICY UNDER TRUDEAU

During the election campaign, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau indicated that, under the Liberals, Canada would turn away from the Harper government’s legacy of war-making and instead work to bring peace to the world’s war-ravaged regions.

While Trudeau sounds less belligerent than his predecessor, his government is, sadly, not working for peace. Instead it is making more war. For example:
•In March, the Trudeau government extended Canada’s military mission in Iraq and Syria for another 12 months and tripled the number of troops on the ground.
•In April, the Trudeau government approved the $15 billion deal made by the Harper government to sell combat vehicles to Saudi Arabia.
•Earlier this month, the Trudeau government committed to sending troops to Latvia as part of a new NATO force to deter “Russian aggression.”

GIVE PEACE A CHANCE!
