The British Interest: Proposals for CANZUK

Bob Seeley, British Member of Parliament for the Isle of Wight who has previously launched the CANZUK All Party Parliamentary Group writes “Proposals for CANZUK”:

These include:

  1. Free trade and movement
  2. Integrated diplomacy
  3. Military cooperation and procurement
  4. Joint Indo-Pacific Fleet
  5. Defence Pact

The reader is urged to read the article which goes on to explains these five key points in more detail. It should be noted that these proposals strongly follow the CANZUK Treaty proposed by Erin O’Toole of the Canadian Conservative Party, which was subsequently made a flagship policy for the party. The┬áCANZUK┬áTreaty as outlined by the Canadian Conservative Party looks for the following objectives:

  1. Free trade in goods/services
  2. Visa-free labour/leisure mobility for citizens, including retirement relocation
  3. Reciprocal healthcare agreement modeled on existing AU / NZ / UK bilaterals
  4. Increased consumer choice/protection for travel
  5. Security coordination

The 2019 Canadian Federal elections occur on the 21st of October 2019. For any Canadian’s interested in CANZUK please ensure that you are registered to vote:
