Martin at the UN
The Prime Minister called for greater international involvement in world conflicts. He repeatedly criticized the UN for its lack of involvement in the tragedy in the Sudan. He also pledged Canadian financial support for halting the deadly conflict.
The fact of the matter is that the Prime Minister's speech is the first step in his lengthy plan to reform Canada's international role. Mr. Martin has often pledged to increase the size of our military, take a larger role in international peacekeeping and increasing foreign aid. Martin also wants to reform the UN, likely changing the permanent members of the UN security cancel.
Mr. Martin's first speech at the UN was a success. Now it's on to Russia, back to parliament and an effort to follow through on his campaign promises.
