Troops Out of Iraq and Syria Now

CanadaOutOfIraq4

Prime Minister Trudeau promised to end Canada’s participation in combat in Iraq and Syria. However, rather than ending the bombing, the Prime Minister is extending it indefinitely, despite the fact that the Canadian military has been accused of killing civilians in the conflict.

According to the CBC, “As of now, under Trudeau’s new Liberal government, Canadian Forces are not just engaging in combat, they are engaging in the largest combat mission in Iraq in some time… military sources say it will take a decision from cabinet or a letter from the prime minister to alter the Canadian Forces mission in Iraq. Until that arrives, it’s business as usual.”

Rather than keeping the promise to end Canada’s participation in combat, Prime Minister Trudeau plans on expanding the presence of Canadian ground forces under the auspices of “training”. In reality, soldiers sent to train are in fact combat troops and are in the line of fire. Any expansion of trainers is a dangerous example of mission creep.

Sign the petition to bring the troops home now.

Peace After Paris

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,

Since the horrific attacks in Paris, many are calling on the Canadian government to renege on its commitment to bring Canada’s bombers home from Iraq and Syria and to cancel plans to bring 25,000 refugees into Canada. We cannot let the attacks create more war and racism.

I call on the government of Canada to:

- Immediately end all bombing by Canada and bring the CF-18 fighter jets home from Iraq and Syria now. Bring Canadian soldiers home and cancel plans for more trainers to be deployed to the area.

- Open the borders and maintain the commitment to bring 25,000 refugees into Canada by the end of this year.

- Cancel the $15 billion arms shipment to Saudi Arabia.

Don’t attack Syria

The Canadian Peace Alliance (CPA) is calling on all its members and supporters to oppose an impending US-led attack on Syria.

Once again, a report about the use of Weapons of Mass Destruction is being used to justify an intervention. We are always opposed to the use of any weapons on civilians, but as was the case with the last reports of an alleged attack, there is no conclusive proof that the attack came from the Syrian government.  Continue reading
