Program Title: Busting The Myth of Canada's Benevolent Foreign Policy
Description: On the heels of the Trudeau Government unveiling its new Defence Policy, the Global Research News Hour confronts some of the mythology around Canada's "benevolence" on the world stage. Foreign Policy critic Yves Engler and researcher/writer and magazine publisher Richard Sanders discuss the question of the public's blindness to the harm it has done from colonial Africa to residential schools to Haiti to Libya. They probe Canada's support for Israeli apartheid, and they discuss whether the charismatic new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau represents a true improvement, over his predecessor Stephen Harper. We also get Engler's take on the newly released Defence Policy and argues that the prescribed boosts in military spending undermines rather than upholds Canadian national sovereignty.
