Canada is behind on its bid to win a United Nations Security Council seat, say former diplomats and foreign affairs officials, which they suggest shows a lack of political will to backstop a Liberal promise that has now become a low priority.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (Papineau, Que.) announced in the spring of 2016 Canada would be seeking one of the 10 two-year rotating seats opening up in 2021 on the 15-member body that votes on matters of international peace and security. It last held a seat in 2000.

“Canadians benefit when we have a time on the Security Council, but I don’t think it’s overly presumptuous of us to suggest that perhaps the world benefits when Canada has a voice on the Security Council,” he said last year, according to CBC News.
