They’re hiring ‘trainers’ for Canadian officials at the United Nations – even before they know who wins the seat.
The Trudeau Liberals are spending even more of our taxpayer dollars on the worthless bid for a UN Security Council seat.
According to the CP, the government is going to award a contract valued at $120,000, to hire ‘trainers’ for Canadian personnel at the UN.
The idea is to “address thematic and country priorities of interest to Canada in its preparation for a seat on the council.”
The contract is being awarded to the Security Council Report, an American organization.
Notably, it appears the contract is totally jumping the gun, since Norway and Ireland are also vying for the seat.
Of course, the government is trying to spin it, with a spokeswoman saying “This training will enhance Canada’s ability to engage multilaterally on key global security issues relating to the UN Security Council’s work. It will be valuable irrespective of the result of the June vote.”
This is a total waste of money.
What the hell do we have a foreign affairs department for if we need to pay an organization from another country to train our personell?
And why is the government so obsessed with the UN seat?
The UN is increasingly proving itself to be a broken and corrupt organization, and a seat on the Security Council has no real influence. After all, Canada would simply vote alongside the US and against China/Russia on all big measures, but since those countries have vetoes, even a surprise vote by Canada would just be shut down.
Canada’s government should be spending money on the Canadian People, not pursuing a useless UN seat.
