OTTAWA — A major international report has concluded that the Trudeau government’s lofty rhetoric about being “back” on the world stage needs the added heft of more foreign aid spending.
The Paris-based Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development reached that conclusion in a report released today by its Development Assistance Committee.
The report is part of the OECD’s rotating five-year review of member countries, and its findings undercut the government’s attempts to lobby for a temporary seat on the United Nations Security Council in the coming years.
