Prime Minister Making Security Council Bid

Trudeau Wants Canada Back On International Body

Trudeau says he wants Canada back on the United Nations Security Council. The Prime Minister is at the UN headquarters in New York today, announcing that Canada will vie for a seat on the council for a two year term starting in 2021. Canada’s last stint ended in 2000, after we served six times on the Security Council since 1940. That’s once every decade before an upset in 2010 blamed on a Conservative government not interested in cooperating with the UN to begin with.
