Canada’s Parliament Continues to be Strong Partner to OneVoice Movement

Oct 26, 2007 Published under Leadership, Mideast Negotiations, OneVoice Movement

The most recent act of leadership by Canada’s legislature came from Dr. Bernard Patry, Vice-Chair of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development, who shared these words at the House of Commons on October 25th:

Mr. Bernard Patry (Pierrefonds—Dollard, Lib.):

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour of informing this House that on October 18, here in Ottawa in front of the Peace Tower, the One Voice Movement‘s Canadian section, which was recently created by University of Ottawa students, organized a multipartite meeting to call for an end to the conflict that has gone on for too long between the Israeli and Palestinian peoples.

OneVoice is an NGO that calls on the leaders of the international community to work steadily and without further delay to find a fair and equitable solution to this conflict. The members of OneVoice have promised to keep going until the only victory that matters to them—the victory of peace, reason and humanity—is fully achieved.

May even more Canadians work actively for peace in the Middle East. That is my fondest wish and the hope of Canadians.

    I wonder what is the next step for OneVoice? The website is still focused on the October event that didn’t happen. But what is the future plan?

    P.S. BTW, the OneVoice blog is being spammed.
