I don't know if it's a fresh start, but it's a change. Canadians don't believe in foreign aid in itself; we believe in foreign aid that is an expression of Canada's values and interests. This move will ensure that foreign aid dollars achieve Canada's goals – not just the goals of people into whose bank accounts our money flows.
