"I believe that Canada must be more assertive and join the call of other like-minded nations for multilateral action under the aegis of the United Nations. This is something that Canada has always been good at since Lester Pearson had the ability to influence this type of action on the world stage," explained Dr. Hedy Fry, MP.

Fry noted that there was absolutely no doubt in anyone’s mind that Hezbollah is a terrorist organization and that Israel is obviously within its rights to demand the return of its soldiers who were taken hostage. "However, action that can precipitate, inflame and expand conflagration in the Middle East is the least desirable outcome," she explained. "Canada must act now and lead to bring together other countries to prevent further violence and immediately begin humanitarian aid as needed and infrastructure renewal."
