Canada’s name was once synonymous with peace. But the Harper government has badly damaged our international image. So we have developed a plan to restore Canada’s reputation by making Canada a global peace leader once again.
Step 1. Stop overspending on preparing for war – Instead of overspending on the Department of National Defence, use the savings to improve social programs and the environment.
Step 2. End the war economy – Shift military production to a sustainable and innovative economy that makes the things people need and provides good jobs.
Step 3. Support UN peacekeeping – Contribute more personnel and resources to end wars worldwide.
Step 4. Promote efforts to abolish nuclear weapons – Join other countries to support a global ban on “the bomb.”
Step 5. Help to prevent future conflicts – Support disarmament treaties, human rights, and efforts to curb the arms trade.
Step 6. Restore Canada’s global reputation…and influence – Make Canada a peace leader, once again.
