Mélanie Joly: instate an airtight arms embargo without delay

Late Monday night – after hours of debate and last-minute amendments – a historic motion in support of Palestine passed in the House of Commons.

The bolder points of the motion brought forward by the NDP – like the call to recognize Palestinian statehood – were watered down by the Liberals. But on many counts, this motion is a strong step forward.

It endorsed an end to arms exports to Israel – a measure advocates have called for since the conflict began last October. It reaffirmed Canada’s commitment to work toward a two-state solution, a ceasefire and the release of all hostages.

But the devil’s in the details – and the motion is legally non-binding. So, while Mélanie Joly announced on Tuesday that the federal government would indeed stop sending weapons to Israel, it’s on us to hold them accountable and make sure they deliver an arms embargo without exceptions or delays.

Will you send Minister Joly a letter right now, calling on her to follow through on her promise to Canadians and institute an airtight arms embargo on Israel?

Minister of Foreign Affairs Mélanie Joly:

Stop all military exports to Israel
