Stephen Harper’s government is planning to spend $1 billion on a fleet of attack drones for Canada.
Please add your voice to Ceasefire.ca campaign, and send an email to Prime Minister Harper telling him that you oppose his plan to buy attack drones now.
These controversial weapons have been used for CIA assassination missions, killing civilians in their path by the houseful. Legal experts have been raising the alarm about the way these weapons are used.
Attack drones just aren’t right for Canada.
Ceasefire.ca is a very effective network of more than 20,000 Canadians who want Canada to be a peace leader. Steven Staples from the Rideau Institute co-founded Ceasefire.ca with others ten years ago to allow people to stay informed and to speak out for peace.
