Canada strongly supports efforts to reform international organizations to ensure effectiveness and efficiency in the promotion of global sustainable development. 10 Paying For World Government Recently, the Canadian federal government passed the acceptance of a new international tax on world monetary transactions. Known as the Tobin tax, the ensuing billions collected would be "a feasible part of a new world order and new world vision," as stated by Lorne Nystrom, member of the Canadian House of Commons. 11 Nystrom explained the purpose of the tax to the House, using the example of 1995 currency transactions and the amount that would have been raised based on that particular year, If there were a 0.1% Tobin tax on foreign currency transactions, that would raise, in 1995 dollars, $176 billion U.S. That is a lot of money. A Tobin tax of 0.003% would be enough money to fund United Nations peacekeeping around ...

That year, Jim Wallis of Sojourners – a left wing Christian advocacy group – teamed up with the Archbishop of Canterbury to "raise the voices of the faith leaders of the world in unity and in a call for justice." (4) The 2005 event was a small, ecumenical affair made up of representatives from Catholic groups, the National Association of Evangelicals, World Vision, the Salvation Army, the Mennonite Central Committee, the World Evangelical Alliance, and other church bodies. These leaders released an "Action on Poverty" document calling for governments to alleviate poverty, and for faith communities to generate the necessary moral will. The text itself was very short and ambiguous, with a underlying socialist slant.
