Please sign the petition “No Canadian warplanes in Eastern Europe

Antonio,

Harper’s pro-war lobby is now banging the drums of war – this time it is against the Russians over Ukraine.

It’s unbelievable, but today the pro-Harper Globe and Mail ran a blistering call to arms from Derek Burney, Canada’s former Ambassador to the United States under Brian Mulroney and head of Stephen Harper’s transition team in 2006, and Fen Osler Hampson, the hawkish academic who now plays a key role in the Centre for International Governance Innovation.

Instead, they recklessly support more “potent actions – economic or military.”

It reads like a blast from a dangerous time in the past, during the Cold War.

But from what I am hearing around Ottawa, there’s no doubt that the conflict in Ukraine is bolstering the pro-war lobby. Harper is using Putin’s moves to play tough on the international stage in order to consolidate his political base here at home.

Worse, the dispatch of Canadian CF-18 fighter-bombers now will be used to justify the purchase of F-35 stealth fighters, later. The escalation will increase Canada’s NATO profile while the defence industry looks for more arms sales in Europe – even Canada’s missile defence boosters are using the crisis to bolster their special interests.

We need to take action. We have posted a petition to Prime Minister Harper and all party leaders on Ceasefire.ca.

Please sign the petition “No Canadian warplanes in Eastern Europe” at http://www.ceasefire.ca/?p=18413.

Tell Harper you oppose Canadian military involvement in Eastern Europe, and urge the government to pursue a diplomatic solution to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.

Thanks for everything you do for peace,
