07 Jun 2012 Is it Time for Canada to Leave the UN?
Pressure is mounting for Canada to take an honest look at our participation in the United Nations. Conservative MP Larry Miller has made it public that he is fed up with the UN “and will urge Government to review Canada’s participation in the United Nations.” His comments come shortly after a commentary by Brian Lilley about the same topic (see below). To add to that, not long ago, we posted another strong article against the UN and their farcical approach to human rights.

If you agree with MP Miller, please take a minute to send him a note ([email protected]) and CC your MP.
