Canada is hosting a two-day UN defense ministers meeting in Vancouver November 14 and 15. But, amazingly, the Liberals aren’t meeting the attendance requirements.
The meeting is looking at ways to prevent conflict, protect civilians and ensure soldiers and police officers on peacekeeping missions have the proper training.
Don't get too excited though. It's also chock-full of your typical UN garbage like increasing the number of female peacekeepers and incorporating gender perspectives into military operations.
To participate in this UN meeting that the Liberals are hosting, National Defence Ministers must be ready to commit a specific number of troops to UN peacekeeping missions.
But Trudeau won't decide on committing troops before the mid-November UN meeting.
One UN diplomat said that:
“Canada is making one promise after the other but there's nothing on the ground so Canada is not delivering.”
