Read about an upcoming civil society briefing to Canadian Senators on the historic nuclear ban treaty, a series of deadly foreign policy landmines being laid by the outgoing Trump administration and more thoughts on how Biden can re-engage on nuclear arms control, on trade with China and on the Iran nuclear deal.
The Trump global wrecking ball is in over-drive. Canada must redouble its diplomatic efforts to increase global cooperation with the overwhelming majority of nations who also reject American unilateralism.
We call on the Government of Canada to demonstrate a commitment to international law commensurate with Canada’s historic role therein and befitting a nation seeking a seat on the UN Security Council.
We commend Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for joining with other G7 leaders in support of the WHO and its vital role in confronting the pandemic. We call for that support to include appropriate additional funding.
It is time to align our scientific, economic, diplomatic and political resources to address the health, climate and nuclear dangers that threaten us all.
