Video from Justin Trudeau's Sept. 29 announcement that they would be pledging an additional $400 million to humanitarian aid spending has reemerged, noting Trudeau's use of the word "reset."

The announcement was followed by a joint news conference with United Nations Secretary General António Guterres and Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness.

Trudeau said funding would go to "to trusted partners on the ground fighting COVID-19," saying that "Canada believes that a strong, coordinated response across the world and across sectors is essential. This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset."

"Building back better means getting support to the most vulnerable while maintaining our momentum on reaching the 2030 agenda for sustainable development," said the prime minister. "Canada is here to listen and to help. This is our chance to help your pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change."

The announcement was one of many by Trudeau that would pledge spending to international aid.

In April of this year, Trudeau announced that his government would put $159.5 million towards the international fight against the pandemic. Trudeau said the funding was in line with the government's stance on the international fight for feminism. Trudeau said that "particularly women and children" would feel the most lasting negative impact from the virus.

In May, Trudeau talked about Canada's future in the UN, touching on Canada's global voice, and those same global institutions that were founded post-World War II.

"When we reflect on the scale of this crisis, many people have compared it to what happened 75 years ago during World War II. Well, in the years following World War II, we created a range of multi-lateral and multinational institutions like the IMF, like the World Bank, the Bretton-Woods institutions, that helped the world over the following decades develop tremendous prosperity and opportunity for people right around the world," said Trudeau.
