Different Govts fund a variety of projects under the auspices of the UN.
I would say yes - but with caution - One Agency that has been corrupted beyond any value or redemption would be the UN Human Rights Council
UNHRC - Should be disbanded - An Agency that protects Govts - Not Citizens. A Failure.
Should Canada stop all funding for the UNHRC and divert these monies to NGO's that are recognized for their actions regarding Human Rights and bringing to light the most reprehensible abuses that have been committed by many members of this corrupt Agency?
It is fact that the UN is not only bloated but corrupted and an over staffed workforce at the top levels. Programs that should be funded sit idle while the UN can hold mega conferences in Geneva that attract thousands. And yes you foot the bill. 8000 attended one such conference - yes 8000 - At what cost? And you know they were not renting the cheap seats or on a strict pr diem for meals now.
I recall the uproar in the Canadian left when it was rumoured that the Harper govt was stopping funding for abortions/planned parenting etc.
Yet we hear nary a quip from the left about one UN Agency that is well beyond redemption and a bloody stain on Human Rights. It was remade, reorganized and supposedly changed only a few years ago but as has become apparent to those that follow this agency it is once again completely corrupted, focused on Israel and Western values yet overlooks the slaughter going on in Syria for example.
Countries that have few Human Rights for their citizens routinely develop and have influence on UN policies in regard to equal treatment of women, racism, homosexuals. Yet these self same countries treat women as a 3rd class, Jews are all the enemy as witnessed by the Darfur Hatefests, along with sentencing Homosexuals to lengthy prison terms or execution.
Should Countries that are rampant and known abusers and perpetrate mass violations of Human Rights sit as members of the UNHRC?
