Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau

Prime Minister Trudeau took office in 2015 with the bold claim that “Canada’s back!” For the world’s poorest people, those powerful words need to be backed with equally powerful actions. In the 2018 budget, Canada started moving in the right direction by adding some additional funds to the aid budget. But we are still far behind other wealthy countries in our spending on aid. Let the Prime Minister know that you support the increase in the aid budget, and that you believe we can be an even more compassionate and generous country.

As Canadians, we aspire to be compassionate and generous. An increased aid budget will enable Canada to achieve its ambitious development goals, esp for women and children. We can and should do more to help end global poverty & hunger! @JustinTrudeau #MoreCanada #MoreAid4Ag

Minister of Finance, Bill Morneau

Minister Morneau has the important job of preparing the federal government’s budget every year. Each budget requires difficult choices between areas to spend more on, and areas to cut. Compromises need to be made between the many competing priorities of Canadians. Some in the government believe ending global poverty and hunger isn’t a priority for Canadians. Tell Morneau you disagree—and that you support a more compassionate and generous Canada for everyone.

Helping people in other countries climb out of poverty contributes to a more stable, prosperous & hopeful world that benefits us all. I care about Canada’s role in helping end global poverty & hunger! We can and should do more. @Bill_Morneau @Foodgrains #MoreCanada #MoreAid4Ag
