  1. Canada is aligned to most US foreign military incursions by ideology and by deed, willingly providing its soft power in the guise of military and police training to countries with questionable records on human rights. In 2017-2018, the Canadian Directorate of Military Training and Cooperation delivered training to more than 1,500 candidates from 56 member countries across the globe. That may not be the offending part of its foreign policy as several countries provide similar service, but doing that while stating as part of its mission to “Promote Canadian democratic principles, the rule of law, and the protection of human rights in the international arena” may well be seen as another contradiction.

    Geopolitical reality seems to reveal Canada’s policy incongruity and UN member states may see through that pretentious presupposition. Canada’s silence about the military coup in Bolivia last November and its forceful determination to carry out regime change in Venezuela against the legitimately elected government of Nicolas Maduro betray precisely a disregard for “democratic principles” and the “rule of law” in the international arena. The UN recognises the Venezuelan Ambassador appointed by the legitimate government of Venezuela.

    Canada is not a peace-loving internationalist country anymore. It has lost the appeal that it may have held in the past, and is criticised today for letting its mining corporations abuse human rights and the environment in — mostly — African countries.
