How the hell can we afford to give money to foreign countries when we don’t have enough to buy the equipment we need here at home?
Amid the ongoing disintegration of the Canadian economy – and with many Canadian small businesses and the energy sector awaiting desperately needed support – the Liberal government is planning to increase foreign aid.
According to a recent report, “Canada’s latest deployment of international aid to fight the COVID-19 pandemic likely won’t be its last, International Development Minister Karina Gould said this week.
More money could be freed up for aid to various countries and international NGOs in the coming months to respond to the pandemic abroad, she told CBC News on Tuesday. She also said protective equipment — such as masks and gloves — could be sent overseas at some point, but not until the government is confident Canada has enough.”
Additionally, the government has already given away $159.5 million of our tax dollars to the UN and the WHO, despite the WHO having been totally discredited by their decision to push Chinese Propaganda, rather than give advice that would have stopped the spread of the deadly virus.
What makes this such a disgrace is that Canada’s economy and fiscal situation is imploding. We are desperately trying to buy up Personal Protective Equipment, give money to Canadians who have lost jobs and income, and save key sectors like the energy industry from collapse. How can we do all of that and still somehow claim we have money to send to foreign countries, and even worse, foreign institutions like the WHO that have failed miserably?
One lesson our country must grasp is that these foreign institutions cannot be trusted, and our efforts must be focused here at home on protecting our own people.
