Unworthy of seat on Security Council
Whether judged by our lack of commitment to UN peacekeeping missions, our meagre foreign aid contributions, or our inability to speak with an independent voice on the world stage, Canada just doesn’t measure up for a seat on the Security Council.
For the past two decades, Canada has shamelessly tried to appease the United States; turning a blind eye toward Israel’s transgressions, championing U.S. attempts to replace the democratically elected president of Venezuela, while participating in American-led regime change from Iraq to Afghanistan, Libya to Ukraine.
Canada’s support for provocative NATO expansion, and its refusal to consider Russia’s very legitimate security concerns, has made the world a more dangerous place. Far better to award the seat to Norway or Ireland. Mike Ward, Duncan, B.C.
