FM Baird claims new and improved Foreign Policy "not about jobs"

He is of course referring to the recently formalized strategy of making the "extractive industries" the centrepiece of Canada's so-called "foreign policy".

He's absolutely right; in no way can any aspect of this policy be mistaken for being about jobs for Canadians.

Rather, it is about mining ventures domiciled in Canada using government infrastructure to further their interests around the world.

Our "foreign aid" is to be piggybacked on this, as is our foreign policy.

"Jobs for Canadians" has absolutely nothing to do with it.
