  • Canada must stop propping up a repressive and corrupt dictatorship in Haiti

    It is time to change Canadian policy towards a nation born in struggle to liberate Africans from slavery. The Canadian government must end its support for a repressive, corrupt Haitian president devoid of constitutional legitimacy. For the past two years Haitians have demonstrated their overwhelming opposition to Jovenel Moïse with massive protests and general strikes calling for his departure from office.

  • Time to fundamentally reassess Canadian foreign policy

    There has not been a formal review of Canadian foreign policy in fifteen years. Let’s use this moment to usher in a new era in which our government’s policies abroad reflect the desire of Canadians to be a force for peace and human rights in the world.

The international community should not reward bad behaviour. Please vote against Canada’s bid for a seat on the UN Security Council.
