#5 Just lending a hand to their fellow travellers "Food Secure Canada" and their "People's Food Policy.". Starving Africans aren't party members, they're just hungry.

#8 People have a "right" to food? Do they also have the "right" to enslave the farmers who grow it for them?

#9 "Why Canada" > the logic is the UNO already knows that many of these Third World juntas would rather deny or kill their own people than initiate serious reforms, which in turn puts the burden on the world's major food-producing Countries, e.g. Canada, to save these Juntas from themselves as per Agriculture.
OTOH, THE ABOVE IS THE KIND OF COUNTRY-SPECIFIC, INTERNAL OR DOMESTIC SITUATION WHICH THE "OBAMA DOCTRINE" WAS SUPPOSED TO ALLEVIATE, vee "food/hunger crimes"???
Giving out food to reward corruption and graft, or denying food to keep resisting regions docile.
