Group of Canadian parliamentarians advocates more democratic global governance

Following the federal elections of October 2015, members of the Canadian House of Commons and the Canadian Senate came together on April 11 in Ottawa to re-establish a joint all-party group that deals with UN matters. The purpose of the Canadian Parliamentary Friends of the United Nations is to “support the UN’s current mandate and Canada’s involvement in the UN,” as the group’s co-chair Don Davies, a parliamentarian from Vancouver, explained.
