"For Canada that course must be the renewal, indeed the strengthening, of the post-war multilateral order".
"It would be naive or hypocritical to claim ... that all Americans today agree".
In a major address to the House of Commons in Ottawa, Freeland pressed the need for Canada to build up its military because she said America wanted to "shrug off the burden of world leadership".
"To say this is not controversial".
"The world is seeing that we have a president again who is embracing his role as leader of the free world", Pence said, somehow delivering the line with a straight face.
Ms. Freeland said Canada has been able to count on the powerful US military to provide a protective shield since 1945 as she argued this country needs to significantly build up the Canadian military with "a substantial investment" to help confront strategic threats to liberal democracies.
In two months, she faces a hard renegotiation with the United States and Mexico of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which US President Donald Trump has lambasted as "the worst trade deal maybe ever signed anywhere".
Rather, she said Canada must start preparing now for a future in which it can maintain its national security and trade interests without the help of the superpower to the north.
"Women's rights are human rights". Those rights include "reproductive rights and the right to safe and legal abortion".
"It is a choice Americans must make for themselves", Freeland said.
"What minister Freeland was saying is that we recognize the importance of our commitment to our military", Morneau said.

Walmart asking employees to deliver online orders
The app can alert an associate when there's an order destined for a location that's on his or her way home. The delivery destinations will be close to where a worker lives or on the way to that person's home.
"We have strong, positive, optimistic values", she said.
Freeland, however, expressed deep disappointment at the US abandonment of the Paris pact and said the existing worldwide order helps constrain powerful nations.
"The single most important pillar of this, which emerged following the carnage of the First and Second World Wars, is the sanctity of borders".
"The atrocities of Daesh directly challenge both the sanctity of borders and the liberal global order itself".
Freeland also pledged that the Liberal government will boost investments in the military "to not only redress years of neglect and underfunding, but also to place the Canadian Armed Forces on a new footing-with the equipment, training, resources and consistent, predictable financing". "To put it plainly: Canadian diplomacy and development sometimes requires the back of hard power".
Freeland said notwithstanding the "incredibly good relationship" with the US, Canada can not simply depend on American military protection, according to the Canadian Press.
Canada will lay out plans to sharply boost its military funding Wednesday after Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said the United States can no longer be relied on to take the lead in countering global security threats.
She said, notwithstanding, the "incredibly good relationship" with the US, Canada can not just rely on American military protection. "That is why doing our fair share is clearly necessary", Freeland said. Europe is on its own, she said during a campaign rally a few days later, leaving the world scrambling to figure out exactly what she meant as she drank a beer.
Canada's new foreign policy will involve spending billions on "hard power" military capability because the country can't rely on an American ally that has turned inward, says Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.
"In short, Canadian liberalism is a precious idea". They curb growth, stifle innovation and kill employment. She outlined three specific ways to do this.
The minister repeated her response to the recent decision by the president to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, saying she and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were "deeply disappointed" but that the federal government would continue to "seek constructive involvement with the U.S." on a variety of environmental issues.
