Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
Canada-Israel Relations

Ms. Libby Davies (Vancouver East, NDP):
Mr. Speaker, the second petition is from concerned citizens in Toronto. It was circulated by Women in Solidarity with Palestine and the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network.
The petitioners point out that Canada has intensified bilateral agreements with Israel, including policing, security, military, political and economic links and expanded the Canada-Israel free trade agreement. They point out that Canada is partnering with Israel in security and surveillance technology through the Canada-Israel public security agreement and that they believe that Canada has failed to condemn Israel’s clear violations of international law.
The petitioners call upon the Government of Canada to immediately change its position–

The Speaker:
Order, please. I am going to stop the member there. There are many members who wish to present petitions. So, if she does have one more, if she could very succinctly explain what it is, then we could move on.

Ms. Libby Davies:
–the Government of Canada to uphold international and humanitarian law.
