Canada to give $119M in aid to Middle East and African countries suffering food crises

“These 20 million people need humanitarian assistance now,” he said at the Keele Street Community Hub. “We know that Canadians care and want their government to respond to the needs of people in these regions.”

    Think of how many people could be fed with that money here 0in Canada. We could provide meals for lower income children at more schools, food for the food banks, meals at soup kitchens. Charity begins at home.

    I think that Justin actually hates us.

    • BillyHW

      Wrong answer. Parents should feed their own goddamn kids. People with fancy SUVs and phones shouldn’t be able to shop for free at food banks after blowing the grocery budget on beer and smokes. Charity begins in your own wallet, not someone else’s.

      Typical woman answer and exactly the reason they shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

        Oh ya people are so awash with money that they are practically swimming in it. You may know this or not but Canadians are collectively 4 trillion dollars in personal debt and this has been this way since the 2008-09 recession with not much coverage in the news by Rebel or MSM sources. Only Internet media is vocal and that of small parties.

        As for student debt, that is around 1 trillion in Canada.

        The point is food bank use has skyrocketed due to this and even people working are going to food banks. That is blaming the victim when only large companies got bailouts and not the average Canadians.

        When people hear bailing out of Canadians they think socialism when in actuality bailing out of Canadians would simply just mean investment to have make-work jobs, essential investments, strengthening of social programs and making the safety nets more reliable. All this can be done in capitalism which would require more communitarianism.

        This is possible by using the Bank of Canada for funding infrastructure and projects.

          As for student debt, tough shit. If you want to major in 15th century French Literature or Women’s and Minority studies or some such BA well you deserve to have the debt.

            I wonder what our so-called leaders should advise the Natives to take a course in– Igloo building ?—

        • Shebel

          Communitariasm —- That is a good word.

      • David Murrell

        You should not be allowed to vote, BillyHW..

        • Etobicoke_Gladiator

          Correct, DM. I have no time for the misogyny, even if he is “joking”. Not funny, and there’s no hint of political correctness from me on this subject, or any others for that matter.

      • k1962

        I agree with you to some extent, but unless you want Canada to look like Brazil etc. where some people go home to the slums after work and you need high fences, razor wire, vicious dogs and a security team, you might want to make sure that the kids in Canada are fed. Furthermore, I think that the government could have also used that money to fund cancer research or hospitals, instead of people like me donating to make up for the shortfall. There are many things that we could have used that money for here in Canada before sending it overseas. Trudeau is an ass and as I said before, I think he hates Canadians. He shows us every time he does these types of things or by what he doesn’t do, like border control.

    • Shebel

      I also think that the dimwitted prick hates US.

  • BillyHW

    Congratulations ladies on feeling good about yourselves for voting. Muslims are now taking money from your working fathers, brothers, husbands and sons and giving it away to enrich African dictators who would rape your 6-year old daughters to cure themselves of AIDS. All because your vaginas leak at the sight of goldilocks.

    But Marie Curie, I know…

    • David Murrell

      You should not be allowed to vote, BilyHW.

    Somalis will never stop starving. Stop tossing our money down a bottomless pit.

    • Shebel

      A starving Somalian means less than nothing to me.

    How about for every dollar in food aid for places across the middle east and Africa, we put at least an equal amount into hardening our borders so they will take advantage of our welfare in their own countries, not over here.

  • Billy Bob Thornton – Arney from the Canadian Action party is 100% that the wars brought the migrants over which also destroyed Syria, Iraq and other Muslim countries, and he is not suggesting we take them but blaming the US for its war on terror and allying with the Saudis which both Democrats and Republicans aided and abetted and gave money and weapons.

    ISIS and Al Qaeda came from the Saudis and even Trump now supports them, and desertification has descended southward in Africa because of the bombings and because of lack of resources and lack of rainfall.

    This all could have been prevented.

    We only care about what happens after, and we don’t care about the long-term.

    Non-interventionism and civic nationalism are the ways to solve terror and build diplomacy and the Obama model just like the Bush model expanded the war on terror and created more wars. Even Trump is expanding Yemen, Iraq, Syria, and even Assad said the US are invaders!

    Trump promised peace and is against peace and could cause WW3 in Asia.

    • Shebel

      Just an aside– I think that we should arm ISRAEL to the Teeth
      And let the Muslims KILL each other.

    Canada must seize the mantle of “moral superpower” from Sweden at all costs!

    • BillyHW

      Maybe we can become the new rape capital of the world too!

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Only if you apply yourself Canada.
        “Rape Capitol of North America” has a nice ring to it.

          It is pretty easy to do—–
          I am sorry to ALL the Black people.
          I was about to make a very Racial Post.
          It is easy to do.

    EFF that think of what it could do at home. I work with his brother in law think I’ll give him a smack tomorrow to be passed on.

  • El Martyachi

    That could be used to fund the CBC for 100 years!

  • El Martyachi

    Er.. that could be used to fund the CBC for .. about a whole month!!!

  • huron

    Iwitnessed a fight at our local food bank over four apples. Just locals not invaders that is how it is going . 119 mil to who not the locals noo that is xenophobic 24 sussex

  • Gary

      Fuck then!

    “We know that Canadians care”

    This Canadian would appreciate his share of the money returned to him and not be wasted on handouts to alleviate problems in countries that have brought these problems on themselves. In other words, I care not one iota and all 20 million can starve to death and I still wont care.

    • Shebel

      Neither will I.

    • Liberal Progressive

      Don’t worry, Canadians are even more generous than this!

      There will be lot’s more money given to these more deserving people than is announced so as not to arouse all the h8tr old stock Canadians. It will just be given in more roundabout ways unannounced out of other budgets.

      We learned how to divert attention when necessary from real budget numbers from the days of our spiritual leader Pierre.

    Generous food aid will reduce the disincentive to civil war in these countries.

    • k1962

      That should go along with some sort of employment opportunities or we’ll be feeding them for life.

      • John Boy

        Their favorite employment is in Jihad against us Kaffir who give them the food so they don’t starve while they fight.
