Canada should make efforts to prevent and deal with the aftermaths of genocide events in other countries as such crimes constitute a risk to national interests, an experts panel said Tuesday in a report.

Canada need to overhaul its foreign policy on genocide abroad, create more infantry and train the military so that they have the ability to protect civilians and interface with other armies should a genocide occur, according to the report, which was compiled by international relations experts and former generals and politicians.

The group even advised Ottawa to establish a cabinet ministry to monitor potential genocides and other human disasters around the world and co-ordinate an early response to prevent massive loss of life.

It also recommended the government establish a standing committee in the House of Commons on genocide prevention.

Genocide and the resulting instability can pose a threat to countries thousands of kilometers away, the report said, citing the squalid conditions in refugee camps, which can be a breeding ground for a number of health problems, including a pandemic.

Other governments in the world are also expected to act to prevent and deal with genocide, the report suggested.
