December 20, 2015 - " Trudeau promised during the federal campaign that Canada would sign the UN Arms Trade Treaty.

Now Canada must essentially apply to join, only after undertaking a legislative or regulatory review to ensure there are no roadblocks in our domestic law, said Grant. "Our colleagues in Ottawa are looking at it," said Grant. "It will take a little bit of time." - Trudeau looking beyond seat at UN Security Council - CTV News
