  1. Russia and China have the worst ever records of human rights, but yet, there are part of the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council. Truly I don't get it.

  2. Canada's campaign should have been on Reforming the United Nations Security Council and tackling corruption.

  3. This is a good test for Canada's leadership at the international stage. A test for our Foreign Policy and Diplomatic Relations.

  4. well, US will represent Canada in UN. Most countries certainly don't feel Canada foreign policy is independent from US, you are wasting a seat.

  5. Now that this waste of time is over these morons can spend some time trying to release the two MIchael's from Chinese prison.

  6. Economic security… For the private sector millionaire and billionaire class. The working class as usual still at the very end would get crumbs.

  7. I thought we were one of the founding fathers/mothers of the security council, how and when did we lose our vote in the Global bureaucracy.

  8. IT SEEMS THE UN DOES NOT FANCY JUSTINS SOCKS AS HE THOUGHT THEY WOULD! WHAT A CLOWN! AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHA

    WHAT CAN HE EVER DO TO REDEEM HIS SOCKS WITH THE UN?

  9. Will like to know what would be the disadvantages for Canada if it WOULD HAVE got a UN Security Council seat.

  10. Does it really matter. What ever USA, Russia and China want passes or get vetoed. Canada and Norway are basically carbon copy US vassals regarding international geo politics and Ireland is hardly any different. All this amounts to is some undeserved pride for the political elites (corruption opportunities) of the countries and it will have no real effect on what the UNSC will do.

  11. Good, after all the BS. Liberals are doing and bullying law abiding Canadians citizens who won’t vote for them.. they need to lose and lose badly to learn their lesson right

  12. The face of "white privilege" fails to buy a seat with millions of taxpayers dollars? UNBELIEVABLE…..everyone is supposed to "love" him……..lol. This NARCISSIST should be out of politics…..he is a crooked as a dogs hind leg……..remember this is the same guy that doesn't take our country's security seriously, and PROMOTES illegal activity by new-comers to enter our country.
