3. Dynamic Stability
We must nurture dynamic stability within a rapidly-changing world.
- Strengthen the social safety net to reduce financial stress. (see 7 and 8)
- Provide tuition relief to help people retrain and reposition themselves to take advantage of new opportunities. (see 9)
- Increase funding and political support for international institutions that help us get along and take care of one another: for instance to the World Health Organization for pandemic preparedness and vaccine-related work.
- Increase support to the Green Climate Fund to facilitate adaptation and mitigation in lower-and middle-income countries.
- Suspend the Safe Third Country Agreement between Canada and the United States, in recognition of the fact that the US is no longer a safe country for migrants.
- Recommit to defending human rights in all contexts, and to working cooperatively to realize the United Nations Sustainability goals.
- Sign the United Nations Treaty on the Prevention of Nuclear Weapons.
- Ensure that the actions we take in Canada do not have harmful side-effects elsewhere:
- – Decarbonize without offshoring our emissions.
- – Trade with honour: ensure the products we consume did not put others at risk through inhumane working conditions, or create harmful local toxic impacts for others.
- Lead from strength: provide international leadership in key areas of strength based on achievement at home—for instance, with the Powering Past Coal Alliance.
