Real Change: A New Plan For a Strong Middle Class (page 71)


JUSTIFICATION

September 2019 - This promise is kept in full since Canada has assisted in disaster responses at home and abroad. However, the level of assistance remains modest internationally, often entails the use of diplomatic instruments and, when determined relevant, economic sanctions. For example, Canada committed $300 million over three years to Rohingya crisis as well as targeted sanctions against the Mynamar government. Canada responded both at home and in the Bahamas to recent disaster caused by Hurricane Dorian.
