He’s baaaaaaack! Hi Vannyel.
I don’t think it’s about obligations as much as it is indicative of a country’s standing as a “global citizen”.
As I mentioned above, many posters on Forumosa have taken the US government to task for apparently (forgive me Comrade Stalin, I don’t know the figures and as such have refrained from commenting on US charitiable donations) not giving very much.
Canada is one of the G7/G8 member countries so has one of the largest economies in the world.
While you are correct that there is no law, it is worth criticzing governments or rich countries that do little or nothing to help the people and countries of the world. Where is the money going?
As a Canadian, I can tell you we are certainly taxed enough!!!
So, does anyone have figures on this or are we blowing smoke with this thread?
Fred Smith, fact checker extraordinaire, Tigerman quote provider and list paster, we need you! C’mon, Canada isn’t that dull is it?
