FORUM: Why Canada lost its bid for a U.N. Security Council seat

Toronto Socialist Action Presents –
Why
Canada lost its bid for a U.N. Security Council seat

Did the U.N. say No because Liberal leader Ignatieff questioned the merits of the bid? Or was it due to the obnoxious positions of present Conservative and past Liberal federal governments on climate change, aboriginal rights, aid to Africa, blatant support for Zionist Israel, interference in Haiti and the ongoing war of occupation in Afghanistan? What should be done about Canada‘s foreign policy?

Guest speakers: Yves Engler

Montreal-based activist, researcher and writer, author of “Canada and Israel: Building Apartheid”, “The Black Book of Canadian Foreign Policy” and “Canada in Haiti” (co-written with Anthony Fenton).

Khaled Mouammar
President of the Canadian Arab Federation

Q & A, and discussion period will follow the presentations.

Friday, November 12 7 p.m.
OISE, 252 Bloor St. West, Room 2-213
