‘Bombs not homes’ defines Trudeau’s feminist foreign policy…

September 28, 2018

As Canada’s three main political parties prepare for the 2019 election, there is one issue on which they will all agree: there will be no challenge to Canada’s bloated war economy.

While right-wing parties will rail against government waste and improper spending (an attack they usually aim at social programs that on the whole function well and would perform even better if properly funded), the federal War Department receives no such criticism, even when its fiscal mismanagement is well documented.

Canada, the Korean Dispute and Foreign Policy Mythology

May 26, 2018

The Myth of Canada’s “Benevolent” Foreign Policy

September 13, 2017

A house built on an imaginary foundation may be a “dream home” but it can never be lived in. The same holds true in politics.

One need not mythologize Canadian foreign policy history to oppose the Trudeau government’s egregious position on nuclear arms. In fact, ‘benevolent Canada’ dogma weakens the critical consciousness needed to reject the policies of our foreign policy establishment.
