“Every year, we spend $5B on programs to help other countries. But the case for foreign aid is extremely weak,” says Bernier.
For some time, I have been talking about how foreign aid needs to end. Canadian taxpayer dollars need to be spent within our country, helping strengthen Canada and help our own Canadian Citizens – instead of being given to foreign countries.
It’s something that none of the federal parties have been willing to discuss, but it looks like that is about to change.

Thank-you Maxime. Yes, let’s start helping and taking care of Canadians! Charity begins at Home!
