How many of those aid dollars actually make it outside of Canada before being spent?

I learned many years ago that much of Canadian aid is tied to purchasing the services and aid materials from Canadian corporations.

Instead of complaining about the situation in Haiti, could Fantino tell us who received the money the Canadian people gave so generously through our Government? Could it be that the corporations haven't lived up to expectations?

I don't disagree with Cherry that things aren't so rosy in Canada. Among other things, health care for the common canadian, child poverty, the ecology and First Nations issues seem to take a back seat to prisons, corporate profit and unaccountably expensive jets.

He is an expert on foreign aid now? Maybe he is looking for that senate seat.

I think we can all agree that he's ignorant. Plus, money can and should go to Canada and to other countries to help out.

"The working guy is getting kind of sick of people spending money like that" (aid to starving people)

Well, to hell with that working guy, then.

He says the money would be better spent at home, but prefaces it with "we like to help countries all over the world but.." Then he reflects that the money would better spent at home on health care. If you follow his argument to it's logical conclusion, which would be every time someone suffers at home you would reduce aid. Eventually we did not spend a dime on aid but would we not still have people at home who are suffering? He is basically saying it is beause of our aid to other people is why people suffer at home. In Don's simple world, if you experience a long time waiting for health care you can blame it on suffering people elsewhere.

Mr Cherry show some compassion they have people living in tents year round since the earthquake. I don't see any Canadian doctors living in tents year round.

How 'bout we help Haiti AND fix our healthcare system? This isn't a "can't walk and chew gum at the same time" kind of problem.
