Should Canadian foreign aid go to China? | Canada | News | Ottawa Sun

"Last year, we delivered a $36-million helping hand — even though the recipient country could easily wipe out our own national debt with the money it has in U.S. Treasury Bonds alone. It boasts a foreign trade reserve of $2.8-trillion and its military is so vast, including reserve members, it could post a soldier in two-thirds of Canadian homes."

"Canada does not provide funding to the Chinese government," said CIDA spokeswoman Emilie Milroy. "Canada’s funding is provided to ethnic minorities' human rights and environmental management projects delivered by Canadian and international organizations, such as universities and professional associations."
