Today’s blog looks at an extremely encouraging Foreign Affairs Committee report on better regulation of our arms exports and the role of civil society in its development. We also look at Arctic security and nuclear disarmament.
This week we explore the possibility of US partnership rather than dominance, look in on Civil Society testimony before the Foreign Affairs Committee and consider how we can stop a shocking new CBC management initiative to disguise “paid content” – advertising – as news.
Our blog considers an exciting new idea to take the politics out of Canada’s arms exports controls through an independent, impartial agency. And we celebrate the granting of the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize to the UN World Food Programme.
