Justin Trudeau's Liberal Government Facing Political Flak At UN Over Nuclear Weapons Treaty

OTTAWA — The unfolding North Korean nuclear crisis is exposing Justin Trudeau's Liberal government to international criticism that it is too soft on nuclear disarmament — and too close to the saber-rattling Trump administration.

International anti-nuclear activists call it a development that could have ominous implications for the government's bid to win a temporary seat on the United Nations Security Council in 2019.

Trudeau called on the Security Council to take "decisive action" against North Korea following Sunday's report of a nuclear detonation by Pyongyang — the latest in a summer of provocations on the Korean Peninsula.

However, Canada has not supported a broader effort by the full UN General Assembly to create a treaty that would outlaw nuclear weapons, a document that opens for signing when world leaders meet in New York later this month.

Very interesting, I personally have not heard our Government really acknowledge this issue. He's to busy it would appear have "Town Hall Meetings" and touring around. He is a disgrace to this Country and I am glad the other Countries who lead, are seeing this and maybe some of those who voted him in will wake up!

From the above article:

"Adam Austen, a spokesman for Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, said Canada supports “concrete” and “meaningful” steps towards disarmament. He cited Canada’s push to revive the Fissile Material Cut-off Treaty, which would be designed to rid the world of the key bomb-making ingredients.
"The government also supports an initiative by Norway to “create a group of governmental experts on nuclear disarmament verification, one of the most challenging obstacles to nuclear disarmament,” he said in an email."

I believe the perspective on this issue depends on whether you feel it is important that Canada sit on the UN Security Council. I do not believe that it is necessary that Canada sit on the Security Council to have world influence. I believe that Canada had its greatest influence when it was known as a 'peace keeper, a role it has not really assumed since 2010.

Canada is a signator of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
