Mr. Speaker, my second petition is on the war resistor support campaign.
The petitioners ask that the Government of Canada demonstrate its commitment to international law and treaties to which it is a signatory by making provisions for U.S. war objectors to have sanctuary in this country.
Back in 1965 to 1973, 50,000 Americans came to Canada when they said no to the Vietnam War. Many people are saying no now to this illegal war that is taking place in Iraq.
The petitioners ask that the Canadian government provide whatever assistance it can to those who are resisting the war in Iraq.
