Review the billions spent on foreign aid, and phase out all aid with no moral or economic efficiency argument

Review the billions spent on foreign aid, and phase out all aid with no moral or economic efficiency argument

Policy

My government will review the $5 billion that Canada spends every year on international assistance programs. Canada will do its part with humanitarian aid to fight global health crises and respond to emergencies such as major conflicts and natural disasters. But we will not send billions to other countries to boost their economies while many Canadians, including some First Nations communities, have levels of poverty comparable to third world countries. Instead of sending billions of dollars to other countries, we should use that money to cut taxes or help Canadians in need, here in Canada.
