Why is Canada opposing global efforts to eliminate nuclear weapons?

On August 19, shortly after the conclusion of the WSF, the UN disarmament working group adopted its final report. It says that only complete elimination of nuclear weapons can eliminate risks of “accidental, mistaken, unauthorized or intentional” use. Most state participants in the working group called for “urgent” negotiations on a UN treaty to attain and maintain a world without nuclear weapons.

Not Canada. Our government voted against the working group report.
