Open Letter to Minister of Foreign Affairs
Chrystia Freeland

 

Picture

Dear Minister Freeland,


We are [I am] outraged by the position the Trudeau government has taken with regard to the escalating conflict in Venezuela. Once again the government has condemned Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, expressing serious concerns over the government’s plan for a Constituent Assembly, saying it’s “contrary to Venezuela’s Constitution”.  This is not only a flagrant interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign nation but is also factually incorrect.  Article 347 and 348 of the Bolivarian Constitution clearly outlines its legitimacy and establishes the president’s right to convoke a National Constituent Assembly.

Scientists conducted race-based experiments on San Jose Island where they monitored how mustard gas affected the skin of blacks, Puerto Ricans, Japanese and Caucasians

The U.S. has agreed to destroy chemical bombs left over from a secret U.S.-Canadian test program that conducted mustard-gas experiments on various ethnic groups during the Second World War.

The eight bombs were discovered on San Jose Island, the site of an extensive wartime chemical weapons test program and, later, the location for several seasons of the Survivor reality TV series.

The weapons on the Panamanian island will be destroyed in September.

Canada’s Department of National Defence had warned years ago that Canadian-made mustard gas and other chemical weapons might still be found on the island, according to documents obtained by the Ottawa Citizen through the Access to Information law.

The failure by the U.S. and Canadian governments to commit to cleaning up the contaminated island has angered Panamanian officials for years. The chemical bombs were discovered in 2002 but it has taken until now to get the U.S. to agree to dispose of the weapons.

More than 30,000 chemical bombs were detonated on the island during the U.S.-led program. One report indicated that there could be up to 3,000 bombs still intact and scattered in the jungles on San Jose.

Canadian DND scientists also noted in one report that in 1974 a worker at a construction site on the island suffered burns from a mysterious substance.

The cartoon states that Canada could give marijuana to ISIS to cause the entire militant

insurgence to collapse because of the effects marijuana has on human behavior.

The cartoonist is saying that most other countries are using violence and that is bad because

they are killing innocent people but there is a better solution. The plane is a Hercules, one

of the biggest cargo planes ever. The plane can hold up to 45,000 pounds. The cartoon

shows how much marijuana Canada would have to give ISIS to affect the militant group.

Canada is in the process of legalizing marijuana so they could make this happen!

Bob Rae and Oliver MacLaren are partners at Olthuis Kleer Townshend law firm. Sarah Colgrove, Benjamin Brookwell, and Julie-Anne Pariseau are associates. The firm acts for Indigenous people across Canada

On June 1, Canada said farewell to four visiting United Nations delegates who spent ten days visiting communities across the country to learn how business impacts international human-rights standards here. Over the next year, they will write their report. Indigenous rights are sure to be front and centre.

Canada is ahead of many nations in recognizing Indigenous rights, but there remains significant work to be done. Canadian courts, governments, businesses, and civil society need to appreciate that truly free, prior, and informed consent is a critical requirement in upholding the rights of Indigenous people in international law.
