Missile Defence Needs Parliamentary Debate
Date: Friday, December 19 2003

Maude Barlow and Steven Staples think a Cabinet decision making a de facto Canadian commitment to NMD may be only a matter of days off.

In a new Straight Goods article, they argue that the issue needs a Parliamentary debate

Canadians expressed enough disapproval this summer that Paul Martin included a question about missile defence on his website. Even though the wording was loaded to discourage opposition, 35% rejected NMD completely.

Time to write the new Prime Minister and his new Minister of Defence, David Pratt (Bill Graham is still Minister of Foreign Affairs).

Right Hon. Paul Martin, Prime Minister of Canada;
there is a sample letter at

Hon. David Pratt, Minister of National Defence;

Hon. Bill Graham, Minister of Foreign Affairs;

Hon. Albina Guarnieri, Associate Min. of National Defence,

PS: Last week on the US side of the line, the Council for a Livable World released results from its security survey of Democratic presidential hopefuls. The issue on which they were most sharply divided was missile defence (only Dean and Lieberman supported it).
