Celebrate! 1st Anniversary of Canada?s Missile Defence role in  NORAD!

COAT
- Richard Sanders - It was one year ago on August 5, 2004, in the epicentre of Canada?s sacrosanct summer holidays, that the Canadian government ever-so-quietly initiated a major change to the NORAD agreement to add ?missile defense? functions to the workload of this Canada-U.S. military pact.

Key Canadian Officials Not Notified About Terrorism Test

Ottawa Citizen
 - OTTAWA - David Pugliese - It had all the makings of another 9/11 but this time with Ottawa as the target. An aircraft is hijacked by terrorists over Ottawa and fighter jets are scrambled to intercept the plane. The situation goes from bad to worse and the decision is made to blow the aircraft out of the sky before it can be used as a flying weapon of mass destruction.

Peacekeepers No More: Canadian Soldiers Off to Fiery Kandahar Could be Locked Into Losing War

NOW Magazine -
Steven Staples - The Liberal government has forged a new link in the chains that increasingly bind our Canadian Forces to the Pentagon... If things go badly, many soldiers could be returning in coffins, killed in a war that has little, if any, meaning for most Canadians. Even worse, it could result in Canada becoming the target of a major  errorist attack here at home.

Troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan - Let the War Resisters Stay in Canada

Canadian Peace Alliance -
The Canadian Peace Alliance is calling on its member groups, individuals and supporters to mobilize for a pan-Canadian day of action against the wars of occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan and in support of US military war resisters on Saturday, September 24th, 2005.

On that date, tens of thousands of people will participate in a huge anti-war demonstration in Washington, DC. We in Canada stand in solidarity with our American friends as we call on the Government of Canada to uphold international law by declaring the war of occupation in Iraq to be illegal under the charter of the United Nations.  We are also calling for the removal of Canadian troops from Afghanistan as it is the largest contingent of support for the US led war of terror.

Tough Canadian General, Bad Approach

thetyee -
Rikia Saddy - July 20 - In a press conference last week, our new Chief of the Defence Staff for Canada, General Rick Hillier, came out swinging. Announcing our new mission in Afghanistan, he called the enemy "detestable murderers and scumbags...they detest our freedoms, they detest our society, they detest our liberties." Asserting that we are already a target of the terrorists, "as much as any other Western country", he put forth a new face of the Canadian Forces.

Canada Requested "Missile Defense" Role in NORAD

COAT:
On August 5, 2004, the Canadian government initiated a change to the NORAD agreement in order to add a crucial "missile defense" task to the Canada-U.S. military alliance. The U.S. promptly agreed to Canada's kind offer to share in the important "aerospace warning" function that is required for the tracking and targeting functions of America's "missile defense" weapons systems.

Canada's Chief of Staff, General Rick Hillier is talking tough about Afghanistan's people, calling them "terrorist scum bags"-(Globe and Mail) and later told his troops that "their job is to kill people"-(Globe and Mail).  

My question is "When did we declare war on Afghanistan?".   We are only invited to be there by a puppet government propped up by the US

Into the Mouth of the Lion: More Canadian Troops for Afghanistan

PEJ News
- C. L. Cook - Overshadowed in the media by events in Iraq, the situation in Afghanistan worsens by the day. Yesterday, a U.S. helicopter ferrying in Navy SEALs reinforcements was downed, with all 17 aboard missing and feared dead. Also yesterday, Canada began sending a new contingent made up of soldiers, RCMP, and Foreign Affairs officials to establish a base near Kandahar.

Urgent - Let Dr Salam Speak in Canada

The Canadian Peace Alliance is in the process of organizing a speaking tour with a Dr. Salam Ismael, General Secretary for Doctors for Iraq which is an agency that organizes medical aid in Iraq. He was in Iraq from the start of the war and continues his work there setting up field hospitals to this day. He worked in Fallujah during the first siege in April and November 2004. His first hand accounts of the occupation are a valuable resource for anti-war activists all over the world.

Dr Salam has been denied access to Canada by the Canadian embassy in Jordan. The reasons for this refusal are ridiculous. He was, for example, told that he had "insufficient employment opportunities in his home country (Iraq)" and therefore posed a risk to stay in Canada. The lack of employment opportunities in Iraq are hardly his fault but more importantly his travel records show that he has traveled extensively all over Europe and Asia and has always returned to his family in Iraq and to his incredibly valuable work there.
