Dear Ceasefire.ca supporter
Canadians have a great reputation as peacekeepers around the world, but that role is under attack.
And I am very concerned that combat operations instead of diplomatic leadership in Afghanistan are making us look like we have a George Bush view of the world.
Many Canadians are very worried that our Canadian peacekeeping reputation is being eroded.
More Canadian troops and tanks in Afghanistan.
The pro-war lobbyists
The pro-war lobby is angry and alarmed because we stopped missile defence, and recently we pushed the government to support a ban on cluster bombs. Now they will work hard to ensure that our voice does NOT get heard on Parliament Hill.
I need your help to stop the pro-war lobby from silencing us.
Thousands of Canadians are joining the New Peace Lobby. Canada can lead the world in peacekeeping. Join us today. Every donation helps the lobbying efforts for peace on Parliament Hill.
With your support we can:
