Canada must always side with those who value freedom, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. A Conservative government will reinvigorate Canada's role in the alliances we share with our democratic allies. This includes existing alliances like NORAD, NATO, CANZUK, the Commonwealth, La Francophonie, and the Five Eyes, but it will also involve more significant overtures to India and Japan. But a Conservative government will also look for ways to strengthen our relationship and open new markets, but with the understanding that at this critical juncture, we need to show strength and resolve above all else. We will end Canada’s $256 million investment in the Chinese-controlled Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, launch a formal complaint at the World Trade Organization if China’s trade blockades persist, and block Chinese state-owned enterprises, solely focused on the political interests of Beijing, from unfettered access to the Canadian market. We also want to renew Canada's historical support for Ukraine and take steps to help Ukraine secure its borders and defend its people. This will include expanding upon current missions to support Ukraine and providing Ukraine's military with the equipment they need to defend their borders. Immediately act to list Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist entity, as well as make full use of the Magnitsky Law to punish Iran's worst human rights offenders. Canada needs a government that is respected on the world stage, not mocked.
