Our focused look today is on Ukraine and the UN principle calling for the peaceful resolution of conflicts. We also contrast Chinese progress on reaching its climate change goals with Canada’s lagging record, update the foreign interference saga and consider the race against time to halt the horror in Sudan.
Russia and the US agree to discuss nuclear risks and arms control; another Canadian judge overrules decisions on faulty intelligence and we examine a quintessentially Canadian proposal for building a Ukraine peace table.
Today we consider the role of Canada’s financial institutions in helping fuel the climate crisis, examine ways to lower growing nuclear risks and dip into SIPRI’s invaluable annual assessment of the state of armaments, disarmament and international security.
Today we present some great news on countering Islamophobia in Canada, we consider an expert’s game plan for moving from an unwinnable war in Ukraine to a durable armistice and David Johnston resigns.
Security hawks have it dead wrong. Conventional, not nuclear-powered, submarines are the right choice for Canada, for nuclear non-proliferation and for global stability.
