Justin Trudeau calls himself a “citizen of the world,” and wants Canada to be a “post-national state.” It seems he is putting those words into action, to the detriment of the Canadian people.
While it’s no big surprise that he would be willing to give so much taxpayer money away outside of our country, the sheer scale of the spending is shocking.
According to CIJ News the Canadian Government gives away $10 billion in foreign aid every year. Even more money was just announced by the government, sending $119.25 million to Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen.
As part of that package alone, tens of millions of our taxpayer dollars will be sent to United Nations Agencies – including $81.6 million for the UN population fund.
Of the overall $10 billion, $2.65 billion goes towards “helping other countries deal with climate change.” So, not only is Justin Trudeau about to bring in a carbon tax in Canada, he’ll send some of that money out of the country to implement environmental policy overseas.
Time to spend Canadian taxpayers money in Canada
It’s clear that Justin Trudeau sees himself as a “global leader” rather than a leader of Canada. His elitist mindset probably thinks just governing Canada is “below him,” hence his countless foreign trips, attempts to erode free speech, and cash-for-access corruption.
When you consider the totality of his actions, a consistent pattern emerges: Trudeau weakens Canada while trying to strengthen other nations and ideologies.
Canada has serious problems, whether it’s the decline of our middle class, the third-world conditions on many reserves, our mistreated Veterans, seniors living in poverty, not to mention our severely underfunded military, healthcare system deficiencies, crime, and crumbling infrastructure.
$10 billion dollars could go a long way towards improving each of those problems. That is what taxpayer money is supposed to be for. We don’t pay taxes to give money away to other countries, we pay taxes for our own country.
Our government must be loyal first and foremost to those within our borders. That means foreign aid must be left up to individuals. If people want to donate their own money to causes around the world they are absolutely free to do so. But that is not the role of the government.
The money we spend on foreign aid should instead be spent on the Canadian people. It’s time to put Canadian taxpayers first.
