Today’s Random Green Party Policy of the Day from Vision Green is page 118:
“The Canadian Foreign Service is suffering from the neglect of successive governments. The Harper government, in particular, has underestimated the importance of a robust diplomatic corps with highly-trained officers.
Canada has traditionally had a fine foreign service. Its officers represent a standard of excellence envied by the world.
Green Party MPs will:
- Restore adequate financial support to the hiring and training of a continuing foreign service and embassies, consular services and High Commissions around the world.”
Quick Translation: Our Foreign Service used to move the world with its skill and bridge-building, giving Canada a diplomatic reputation far above our middle-class power status. We are losing this reputation – and the Green Party wants it back.
Won’t it feel great to vote Green!
