Canada lagging in humanitarian aid

Oct 30, 2018 in Activist Publications

A recent report from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development shows that despite Trudeau’s rhetoric, Canadian aid to the world’s poor has fallen to the lowest in a generation.

Many support this, believing we need to help our own citizens first. But there is no recognized morality that says the accident of birth location determines if a person is deserving of the necessities of life.

We have need in Canada, yes, but the desperate needs of the world’s poorest lay a claim great than any of us lucky enough to be born in Canada.
