Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
World Conference against Racism

Mr. Speaker, the Liberal Party continues to mislead Canadians about its disgraceful attendance at the Durban conference in 2001.
 
I have a letter that the member for Eglinton-Lawrence sent to one of his constituents where he says, "We stayed at the request of the Israeli government".
 
Yet Ambassador Alan Baker, who the National Post reports led the Israeli delegation at Durban , said:
 

We tried to get the Canadians to walk out 

 
Would the Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister explain how our government is standing up for Israel ?
