'Bombs not homes' defines Trudeau's feminist foreign policy 28.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada As Canada's three main political parties prepare for the 2019 election, there is one issue on which they will all agree: there will be no challenge to Canada's bloated war economy. While right-wing parties will rail against government waste and improper spending (an attack they usually aim at social programs that on the whole function well and would perform even better if properly funded), the federal War Department receives no such criticism, even when its fiscal mismanagement is well documented . So infused is the myth of Canadian benevolence on the world stage that no one from the NDP, Liberals or Conservatives will raise a scintilla of dissent regarding the already enormous $20-billion annual investment in an organization that regularly produces questionable financial audits, continues to cover up its role in war crimes such as the torture of Afghan detainees, and treats its veterans with a degree of disrespect that is beyond reprehensible.

Ed Finn A recent report on Canada's abysmal failure to protect and care for the country's youngest and most vulnerable citizens -- its children -- made headlines and stirred ripples of shame and outrage. Compiled by Children First Canada and the O'Brien Institute for Public Health, the study found that children in Canada suffer from shockingly high rates of poverty, obesity, infant mortality, abuse, suicide, and declining mental health. Calling these grim statistics "deeply disturbing," Sara Austin, director of Children First, pointed out that "Canada ranks as the fifth-most prosperous nation in the world, but there's a big disconnect between the well-being of our country and the well-being of our children. All levels of government need to do more to ensure that children benefit from Canada's overall wealth."        This plea for decent high-quality child care in Canada is only the latest in a long list of such supplications. It is only the latest such report detailing the execrable extent of child ...
