How Can The Government Justify Foreign Aid While Many Of Our Citizens Are Homeless?


We need to take care of home first.

As we all know, there are many homeless Canadian citizens.

A growing number of those in the homeless population are Canadian Veterans.

Yet, even as many Canadians are suffering, the government somehow manages to spend money on foreign aid – including giving money to the nation of Jordan to build roads for their military.

This brings an essential question to mind: How the hell can the government justify giving money to foreign countries when our own people are suffering?

It’s something I’ve brought up before, and will continue bringing up, because it’s a sign of how stifled political debate has become in this country that the idea of ending foreign aid and redirecting that money toward helping Canadians doesn’t even get brought up by the main political parties.

After all, why should taxpayers money go towards foreign countries? How can we justify sending billions of dollars beyond our borders when so many our own citizens – who the government is supposed to serve – need help?

Think of how much help Canadian Veterans, homeless Canadians, and Canadians living in poverty could get from the $5-$10 Billion the government gives away to foreign countries every year.

It’s time we start making this something that gets discussed and debated. We need to demand that taxpayers money stays in Canada and goes towards helping Canadians.

We must pay heed to the common-sense wisdom that says “take care of home first.”

  1. The Liberals are so out of touch with the “working class” because Liberal ideology identifies the politicians superiority.
    Common people problems, are beneath them, unless there is a world stage present.

  2. Homeless, poverty stricken and health restricted Veterans do absolutely nothing to further Trudeau’s rabid desire for a position at the UN. It would actually be a good thing because he wouldn’t be damaging Canada.

  3. our opposition, courts, law enforcement are all useless wastes of taxpayer money as they do NOTHING TO STOP THIS CRIMINAL WHILE HE DESTROYS EVERYTHING IN HIS PATH TO EMBRACE HIS EVIL IDEOLOGY UNDER THE GUISE OF A RELIGION AND RECOLONIZES CANADA WITH THESE TERRORISTS AND TO WIPE US OFF THE MAP AS HIS HATE, DISDAIN AND CONTEMPT FOR US GROWS AND GROWS AND HE IS NOT SHY ABOUT TELLING US AND THE WORLD HOW MUCH HE HATES WE ACTUAL CANADIANS AND CANADA! KEEP PAYING HIS SALARY, PENSION AND PERKS AND KEEP PROVIDING THE GOOD LIFE FOR HIS TERRORISTS!!!

  4. The problem of homelessness started in the early 1980’s. Before that our streets were empty at night,as they should be,and among many reasons is; we had jobs for everyone who wanted one in manufacturing plants, mental institutions for the mentally ill, and and governments that hadn’t frittered away our prosperity, YET!
    In the 80’s we closed our mental institutions and cut way back on MH care, shipped 500,000 manufacturing jobs overseas, and gutted the mid level employment market for young people with no skills and little ambition.

    We started an immigration policy that shut out the educated and trade classes of Europe in favor of people from third world Countries,thus increasing out social and medicare costs enormously, and now we reap what we sowed back then.

    This has existed since the early 80’s,through governments led by Mulroney,Chretien,Martin, Harper,and now Trudeau 2,and always we have sent billions overseas to such allies as India,Pakistan,the Middle East, Africa without regard for our veterans or homeless,who increase in number every year.

    Don’t expect any government to address these problems,it’s too costly,and the color of the PM’s tie won’t matter as much as fooling enough of the people long enough to get elected.

  5. Don’t forget the above named politicians also shipped their own money overseas – to the Bahamas and such places – to hide it from the tax man. And the best part for them? The fees and accounting advice they receive in order to do this is a write off against any taxes they do pay, or perhaps enable them to get money back from the government.

  6. It’s called Global Governance…or Global Government….and Canada is the Judas Goat for the United Nations. The aim is to remove the middle class and reduce us to a level of poverty where in our perceived affluence we live from pay check to pay check…..
    We’ve been sold out as a nation….it doesn’t matter which federal party is in control….the agenda stays the same….Do you remember when the former UN Sec Gen B.B. Ghali stated….”The age of the sovereignty of nations is passed.” Believe it…..especially for Canada……
    Our military, police, veterans and seniors are now second class citizens while new settlers and jailed criminals get special treatment…It’s a perfectly orchestrated madhouse…….
