Canada’s prosperity = security and vice versa.

An interesting report by the Canadian Business Council, noting the intimate relationship between Canada’s economic prosperity and its security.

In somewhat veiled-speech, it posits that we’re dedicating the bed… 🛏️ 💩

KEY TAKEAWAYS​

1. Canadian companies are in the crosshairs of state-sponsored actors seeking to advance their interests in ways that undermine Canada’s national and economic security.

2. Successive governments have been slow to respond to a new geopolitical reality that poses an unprecedented national security threat to the economic well-being of all Canadians.

3. Canada should follow the path of many of its closest allies by integrating economic security considerations into a national security strategy that helps identify and mitigate strategic threats.

4. An integrated Canadian security strategy should strengthen economic security architecture, bolster innovative capabilities, and expand international security partnerships.


 
We really don't have to increase spending all that much. We just need to get a proper Foreign Policy Review done, followed by a clear eyed and cold hearted defence review.

Then the big if. A government and politicians to put aside the petty politics, stop playing footsie with mischief making diasporas, convene Crown Commissions with real teeth to look into monopolies, performance of LEO's, performance of health care system, foreign interference, what we really need to have for our power supply, really get to work on the infrastructure deficit, etc, etc.

It’s it that Canada is naive, it’s willingly naive and ignorant when it comes to the rest of the world, or more accurately what goes on in the rest of the world, and how Canada is and will be affected.

Yes it would really be great (and I don’t saw this sarcastically) if the rest of the world was like Canada, but it isn’t and as a result Canada and Canadians need to accept that the world is a generally dangerous and shitty place, and that it needs to align to those realities.

The highlighted part is actually quite ironic for a nation of immigrants.
