MOUNT PLEASANT NEIGHBORHOOD HOUSE
800 EAST BROADWAY
CAP/PAC Policy Highlights
1) Call for a Royal Commission to investigate the full analysis of
the September 11, 2001 incident known as 9/11; e.g., investigation of
the free fall of three towers in New York, one of which was not hit
by a plane, the failure to deploy interceptor planes, failure to
heed advance security warnings from many countries. Canada has been
negatively impacted by that event in several ways including a) the
creation of liberty stripping anti-terrorism laws, b) the
bureaucratic incremental integration of Canada with the USA into a
North American entity with police state Emergency Preparedness Laws,
a Smart Border Agreement, a Security and Prosperity Partnership
Agreement , 3) the redefinition of Canada's military role from
peacekeepers to aggressors, 4) justification of Canadian troops
dying in Afghanistan, 5) the redirection of tax money away from
supporting the Canadian safety net of social programs to funding a
2) A call for the Canadian government to cease immediately all
its actions that are merging Canada into a North American entity,
and a defence against the takeover and loss of our nation occurring
via the implementation of a North American Union, without the consent
or knowledge of the Canadian people.
3) A recommitment to the abrogation of NAFTA since NAFTA is the model
for an integrated Fortress America focusing on military, immigration,
defence, foreign affairs, harmonized health, policing, judicial,
legal, as well as expanded economic and financial integration.
4) Support the Troops by immediately calling them home and removing
them from cooperation with the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan
5) To call for the cessation of the militarization of Canada, and the
expansion of a war budget, and return to the financing of health,
education, housing, infrastructure, municipalities etc.
6) A sharper focusing on the immediacy of an endangered world from
fossil fuels and global warming, with a practical call for a
commitment to create a Canadian industry to manufacture Electric Cars in Canada
7) A call for rejection of the "AMERO", or any other North American
currency, or the U.S. dollarization of Canada 's money supply, and a
recommitment to the use of the Bank of Canada to protect our
sovereignty over the Canadian economy and money supply.
8) A call for the return of statutory reserves.
9) Commitment to prevent the use of Electronic Voting Machines in
10) Make every effort to field 308 candidates in the next federal election.
11) Committee examination of and recommendation for implementing
Direct Democracy within the party and national government, including
a Swiss Style referendum process to be put to CAP/PAC membership for
vote by referendum.
12) An expansion of policy detail respecting the CAP/PAC call for the
rescission of all existing legislation and pending legislation
that dismantles civil liberties including anti-terrorist legislation.
13) A new party logo.
14) A commitment to full transparency within the party.
l5) A motion to support the coalition against Israeli Apartheid was
referred to the policy committee for more detailed consideration to
be put to the membership within 30 days.
16) Canadian Action Party/Parti action canadienne
members endorse a call to boycott, divestment and
sanctions campaign against Israel’s
apartheid-like practices against the Palestinian
people. The July, 2005 call to boycott has gained
worldwide momentum from trade unions, political
parties, cultural, academic and church groups,
Jewish peace and human rights groups, businesses, and individuals.
A motion in respect of this support was tabled at
the party's convention in September, 2006 in
order to become more familiar with the issue.
With an extremely high percentage of positive
feedback received, it has now been officially approved.
Canadian Action Party/Parti action canadienne
supports international and humanitarian law,
including the Geneva Conventions and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
CAP/PAC believes that Israel must demolish the
separation or “Apartheid” wall which is
encroaching Palestinian land and making daily
life impossible for Palestinians. Israel must
compensate those injured by the wall to date,
must cease its brutal occupation of the West Bank
and Gaza and must comply with the precepts of
international law, including the right of
Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and
properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.
Further, Palestinian Arabs living within Israel's
borders are treated worse than second-class citizens.
CAP/PAC believes the peace that Israel so desires
will never be possible until there is justice for
Palestine and Palestinian refugees.
CAP/PAC also recognizes the parallels between
Israel and Canada in that a pre-existing
population has been pushed aside. We also support
an honest look at Canada’s own human rights record regarding our First Nations.
CAP/PAC acknowledges Canadian participation in
the occupation through the Canada-Israel Free
Trade Agreement and the Ontario-Israel Memorandum
of Understanding and commits to abrograte these
agreements until Israel ceases its apartheid-like
practices against Palestinians.
The Canadian government has added to Palestinian
suffering by being one of the first countries to
cut off critical aid to Palestine to punish it
for democratically electing a Hamas government one year ago.
An article in The Jerusalem Post, February 4,
2007, reported that the Canadian government
announced that it would establish an “Israel
Allies Caucus” to “mobilize support for the
State of Israel and promote Judeo-Christian
values amid a groundswell of Christian support
for Israel around the world.” An almost identical
caucus was established in the U.S.approximately 6
months ago. However, there was no trace of this
announcement in the mainstream media in Canada.
In response The Alliance of Concerned Jewish
Canadians commented: "This move is just another
sign of the Harper government's complete contempt
for the Canadian public." It is not in the
interest of most Canadians, and certainly not in the interest of most Jews."
