The Canadian Ambassador for Indonesia, Cameron Mackay has recently visited Nusa Penida to inspect the agriculture training program that has been provided by the Canadian government as a form of support for the local community on the island

The Regent of Klungkung District, I Nyoman Suwirta who accompanied Mackay during his visit said that he really appreciates the support from the Canadian embassy to develop the agriculture in Nusa Penida by providing proper training for the local community on the island. The Head of Canadian Cooperation Development Division, Sherry Hornung also appeared during the visit.

“After previously requesting support from the central government, assistance and cooperation was finally obtained and the Canadian government has supported us by providing training to develop some of our agriculture products such as seaweed, Poh mango, coconut and cassava.” Suwirta said on Monday (29/3). He also explained that Nusa Penida was chosen because the island has so much potential for sources of income other than tourism.

“Agriculture could provide a living for the local communities while the tourism sector is affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, And as the government officials we are responsible to assure that these products can be distributed in our local markets.” Suwirta concluded. He also said that regional governments keep on observing this training program to assure that people will get the benefits of learning new skill sets.

Indonesia should be aware that any aid from Canada comes with strings attached. The bizarre policy agenda of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in everything from his support of Islamic and Sikh terror to the destruction of the family unit ( among the hundred things he's hated for in Canada) have made Canada a pariah state held in low regard internationally.
