The exclusive priority of the government of Canada on the international scene should be to manage our relations with other countries in order to protect and further the interests of Canadians. Unfortunately, that’s not what’s happening.
There is a growing trend to dilute national sovereignty, and to favour increased international policy coordination as well as the redistribution of wealth from rich to poor countries under the supervision of the United Nations. This globalist vision, made explicit in the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, has been heavily promoted in Canada under Justin Trudeau, who believes that we are a “post-national state” with “no core identity.”
Over the past several years, Canada has signed many UN treaties, accords and compacts on issues ranging from global warming to migration and sustainable development, that tie us to this corrosive globalist agenda.
Meanwhile, as our national debt continues to mount, the Liberal government devotes more and more resources trying to solve social and economic problems in other countries. It spends billions of dollars every year to help countries in Africa and Asia build roads, educate children, and reduce their CO2 emissions. It spends $1.4 billion every year to offer abortion and reproductive health services to women in developing countries.
A People's Party government will:
Continue to work closely with our allies to maintain a peaceful international order, but will not get involved in foreign conflicts, such as the war in Ukraine, unless we have a compelling strategic interest in doing so.
Prioritize relations with our main trading and defence partner, the United States of America, to ensure our prosperity and our security.
Withdraw from all UN commitments, including the Sustainable Development Goals, the Global Compact on Migrations and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, that threaten our sovereignty, and reduce our presence in UN institutions to a minimum.
Liberalize trade with as many countries as possible, while ensuring our security and protecting our economy from the threat of potentially hostile foreign investors.
Save billions of dollars by phasing out development aid, and focus Canadian international assistance exclusively on emergency humanitarian action in cases such as health crises, major conflicts and natural disasters.
