Dear Next Door Neighbours – The Leaders of Two Nations – Trump vs Trudeau

Dear Mr Trump,

It has been brought to our attention that your actions are currently breaking int’l laws, as outlined by the UN Charter.

Whatever you think and how you run your country may not usually be our business in Canada, though we do exchange a LOT of trade, tourism and media as we have a border in common.

But recently, your actions have caused more than distress and worry. They have cost Cdn lives, and put more at risk. They have cost money for policing due to your failure to act properly about health and human rights issues. And they have cost money for our public health, hospitals, LTCs and congregate care facilities.

As you look for a scapegoat, so do Cdn citizens and the opposition parties of Canada. And in this case, they seem to be following your lead. In whom they hate, who they wish to blame, and what actions they want taken.

As the prime minister and his party stand against this wave coming from you, it has recently impacted a leader’s safety and that of his family. As well as that of the Governor General of Canada and her son.

We as a country have tried assauging your aggressions as we attempt to jockey negotiations over NAFTA, added tariffs, a pipeline, sending health workers and supplies to you, during your public health emergency, and border negotiations. Over and above normal trade. But nothing seems to be returned or sufficiently pleasing to you.

This seems to be impacting the safety, not only of our citizens, but also our leaders.
And we think it is time that you face the consequences of your attitude and leadership of your country. Please do not draw us further into your troubles. We would then be able to focus on our own governing. Instead of ameliorating your bad influence and aggression.

The Security Council can take action to maintain or restore international peace and security under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter. Sanctions measures, under Article 41, encompass a broad range of enforcement options that do not involve the use of armed force.

C. Article 41 –

Measures not involving the use of armed force
Among the most common measures not involving the use of armed force, which the Council has at its disposal to enforce its decisions, are those measures that are known as sanctions. Sanctions can be imposed on any combination of states, groups or individuals. The range of sanctions has included comprehensive economic and trade sanctions and more targeted measures such as arms embargoes, travel bans, financial or diplomatic restrictions. Apart from sanctions, Article 41 includes measures such as the creation of international tribunals (such as those for the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda in 1993 and 1994) or the creation of a fund to pay compensation for damage as a result of an invasion.
The Repertoire captures decisions of the Council imposing, modifying, exempting from or terminating measures under Article 41 and highlights issues that were raised in the Council’s deliberations in connection with Article 41.

All information regarding the committees established to oversee the implementation of measures adopted pursuant to Article 41 is covered under Sanctions and Other Committees monitoring mandatory measures. The Repertoire also covers the Council’s general discussion on the topic of sanctions.

The Security Council has applied sanctions to support peaceful transitions, deter non-constitutional changes, constrain terrorism, protect human rights and promote non-proliferation.
Possible sanctions include:

an arms embargo (ban on weapons, protective attire, military vehicles, etc.);
an embargo on the import and/or export of certain goods, software and technology. For example, equipment needed to develop missiles or atomic weapons. Embargos can also cover goods that generate money for a country’s leaders, like oil or timber;
an additional permit requirement for sensitive goods, software and technology, which could be used in arms programmes;
restrictions on loans and credit for certain people/companies;
freezing the assets of certain people/companies;
travel and visa restrictions (visa bans) for certain people.
Sanctions can be imposed by the UN Security Council, the European Union (EU) and individual states. In certain cases, the Netherlands will institute sanctions, without any prior action by either the UN or the EU. In these cases, the target of the sanctions is often an individual connected with terrorism in the Netherlands.
