Justin Trudeau Announces He’s Giving $1.4 BILLION More Of Our Tax Dollars To Foreign Countries

How about helping Canadians instead?

The Trudeau Liberals are continuing their policy of giving away tons of our money to foreign countries – even as serious problems here at home go unaddressed.

Justin Trudeau made the announcement a speech, in which he revealed that the government is taking a whopping $1.4 BILLION more from taxpayers and giving it away outside our borders.

Here’s what the Globe & Mail reported on the massive foreign spending binge:

“Canada will increase its international support for women and girls’ health and rights to $1.4-billion annually over the next decade, with $700-million of that yearly spending dedicated to sexual and reproductive needs, Mr. Trudeau said. He made the announcement in Vancouver at Women Deliver, an international conference on gender equality that brings together world leaders, advocates and academics from more than 165 countries.”

Trudeau called it a ‘game changer’:

“With $700-million of the annual investment dedicated to the sexual and reproductive health rights, we’re focusing on the most neglected areas of this field.”

“This should not be a political issue. These divisions are playing out globally with devastating consequences and women deserve better,” he added.

Trudeau also said Canada was ‘stepping up,’ though his idea of ‘stepping up’ appears to mean forcibly taking money from Canadians and giving it foreign countries:

“Before we can even talk about girls’ education, we have to talk about sexual, reproductive health rights. We need to talk about maternal, newborn, child health. Those are the things that Canada is stepping up while other countries are stepping back on their investments, playing politics with it. Canada is stepping up. We understand that [this investment] is essential to moving forward in a holistic way that respects women and empowers them to build a better future for themselves, their kids, their families, their community.”

Those words all sound nice, but this is actually a betrayal of Canadian taxpayers.

The Canadian government exists to serve Canadians – not the world. That should be clear enough from the fact that it’s called the ‘CANADIAN’ government, not the ‘world government.’

But Trudeau and many of the political elites seem bored by the idea of solving problems in Canada and helping Canadians. Instead, they like to virtue-signal on the world stage, knowing that they’ll get fawning media coverage if they just repeatedly give away the money that is supposed to be going to their own citizens.

Instead of giving our tax dollars away, we need to end foreign aid and spend that money on the Canadian People.

“Slash foreign aid. Focus on Canadians. The job of the Canadian government is to help Canadians, not people in other countries. That’s what private voluntary donations are for. Canadian Citizens must always be the priority of the federal government. Anything less is a betrayal.”

This idiot has lost it. He is out of control. How about looking in your own backyard prior to attempting to fix others.
All of this for UN seat.
What a stupid idiot this PM is.
He has lost touch with reality and what is important.

Justin the traitor takes but never gives . he pretends to give but somehow the money manages to remain close by.
How we know, the media is not talking yet, when PMSH was giving money to some needed people, the media was on the ball tracking that money to it’s rightful destination and if one dollar goes amiss, lo and behold the media will harp on it for that missing dollar but not with their boss Trudeau, he does as he pleases.

If memory serves, Canadian taxpayers already handed $20 million over to the Clinton Health Access Initiative, a charity which is part of the Clinton Foundation.

The liberal party, led by Trudeau, committed $650 million in their 2017 budget as foreign aid to specifically address gaps in sexual and reproductive health and rights in the world’s poorest and most vulnerable communities.

Another $1.4 BILLION well spent by “tax and spend” liberals and Trudeau.

This is insane what he is doing why did he not use this money to fight carbon in the air because it is false. He is destroying Canadians hopes of being successful taxing everyone to death wants to disarm us so he can carry on his ways. I call it treason to us and our Canada.

“Reproductive health rights” and “women’s health’ are euphemisms leftists use because they can’t quite bring themselves to say ABORTION. If there is nothing wrong with abortion, why can’t they say the word?

And Trudeau is our most pro abortion PM ever, he’s to the left of dear old dad, who was extremely liberal himself on social issues.

Canadian taxpayers did not give Justin Trudeau permission or the authority to spend our hard earned money on his personal global causes. There’s a difference between giving someone a hand-up than giving someone a handout. A handout means you (Trudeau) have to steal what’s in your hand from someone (Canadian taxpayers) else’s hand.

Actually they did give him permission when they voted for him. We can fix it in October but only th3 voters can fix it. Let’s hope they do

Most of Canada’s foreign aid goes to the Middle East and Africa,you know those bastions of democracy.So I’m sure every dollar is accounted for.

Hmm sounds all good and dandy doesn’t….. just one problem or is that many problems. First on where does he find $1.5 billion just like that to give away, when we currently have a TOTAL Federal deficit of over $1.3 TRILLION and he is all ready running about a $35 BILLION deficit this year alone already? Next is, why could he not have spend that money on bringing clean fresh water to the people of the north that do not even have clean drinking water. Or, why could he not spend the money on improving the food delivery service for… Read more »

When a leader can give away billions jeopardizing a nations economy without parliamentary hearings and debate and simply create irresponsible new taxes that is not a leader, that is a Dictator and your democracy has ceased to function.

WOMEN? WHAT WOMEN?. He has no regards for women or their needs.

That money for women internationally is just a ploy into believing that he is ‘giving’ money to them for their needs which I doubt he is doing since they are beneath him. And since the bribed media will not do any investigation into the whereabouts of our money then I guess it’s up to us to do the investigating. Right Spencer?

Is anyone doing the math? It appears that annually Trudeau is giving away over 20 billion dollars a year – all to foreign nations and UN intersts and the use of those funds is not audited.
Bullys and Dictators do that.

In 2016-17 year, the Federal government alone spent $311 Billion.
This initiative is an increase from $1.1 B to $1.3 annually by 2023.
Ashamed, disgusted, disappointed, all come to mind seeing the weak and indifferent complain. As if Canadian humanitarian efforts are another easy place to point another finger, another excuse for why the life you know you’ve wasted is so pathetic.
That damn humanitarian aid.
Our reputation around the world for kindness, strength, manners, stoicism and decency. Previous generations earned it. A snap shot of today’s ignorance and hate would be night and day, some of the cowards I’ve seen lately.

Also, once the money has been donated it cannot be traced as to end use…I always wondered if a portion of it (kickback) didn’t end up in offshore accounts with which our politicians and bureaucrats are very familiar.

You’re not far off the mark with the kickback suspicion. Read somewhere the Clinton Foundation under the pretense of helping Haiti, there were suspicions of kickbacks.
