Authorization for Use of Military Force in Canada Resolution of 2009

Whereas:
The Canadian regime, currently led by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, is engaging in an undeniable genocide of the French-Canadian population of Quebec;

The illegal actions of the Canadian regime have resulted in countless deaths outside of Quebec; and

The resulting tides of refugees across the northern border is overwhelming, and the northern states of Atlasia are being destabilized as a result,

Therefore:
The Senate of Atlasia calls on the Prime Minister of Canada to immediately withdraw Canadian forces from Quebec and resign;

The Senate of Atlasia authorizes President Bgwah to use the Armed Forces of Atlasia as he deems necessary to prevent further bloodshed in Canada and defend the national security of Atlasia; and

The Senate of Atlasia authorizes $1 billion to be spent on food, shelter, and medicine for any present and future Canadian refugees.

Supporting Freedom in Egypt Bill

Whereas the Atlasian government and people applaud the courage of the Egyptian people and fully support their struggle for a just and accountable government, and is united in its condemnation of the oppressive and violent response to the demonstrations in Egypt by the current regime,

Full economic/trade and military restrictions are imposed on the Arab Republic of Egypt effective immediately.

As the DoEA has changed its policies to be in line with those called for in my bill, I withdraw it.
