    How will the NDP fear without their ‘parents’ the UN- who or where can they run too for every nonsense that doesn’t come their way?

    Dead on! Continue to get the message out! Tell people to write their MP’s demanding withdrawal from the UN. With all the other memberships, we don’t need one that threatens our sovereignty and provides kicks in the teeth!

    It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.

    Winston Churchill

    The UN (not unlike democracy) while not perfect is the only game in town. If you want to leave the UN, you have to come up with a better way for us to exist in the new Free Trade, free commerce world. Imagine the vast changes in Canadian Military spending that would have to occur without the help of our UN partners, like the US. Speaking of the US, imagine being the leader of our country and trying to explain why getting out of the UN is good for our relationship.

    Like it or not our future is linked to the way in which we navigate our relationship with the world’s new direction and order. If we are not in the UN and every other nation with power is, we have no say, no vote, no voice.

    our poor are often obese

    Actually that is the case in most developed countries Brian. Cheap carbs and starch are usually the only things poor people can afford, so that’s what they buy an eat. It’s really sad these things have to be pointed out to you, I expect better from university educated mind or do you write them just to be misleading?

  5. Leave the useless UN right now!!!!!!!

    Dear John,

    There is NOTHING democratic about the UN.

    Only game in town? G20, G8, O.A.S., NATO, etc.

    Military spending? Our military involvement in the U.N. is a net loss we get
    NO money from them. U.S. help ? A) NATO,NORAD B) U.S. citizens hate
    The U.N. too. C) military relationship effected? See above.

    World direction and order? No thanks. You want to devolve into a U.N. steeple? All I can say is bbbaaahhh, bbbaaahhh , bbbaaahhh !!

    Stephen our poor are obese, as is a growing number of the working class and the middle class. Obese, not hungry, there’s a difference.
