In addition to summarizing party platforms on the Middle East, the Guide reviews the performance of dozens of individual MPs on these issues, identifying "swing" ridings across the country. It suggests alternatives for those parties and candidates who do not have a strong Middle East record. The Guide reflects the urgency felt by CJPME and many Canadians to salvage Canada's values and international reputation, to help ensure that principled and balanced parliamentary leaders are elected.
"If the current Conservative administration strengthens its position through this election, Canada's international stature and humanitarian institutions will suffer irreparable damage," says CJPME President Thomas Woodley. CJPME believes that the Guide will enable people to play an active role in shaping the outcome of the election, no matter where they may live.
CJPME notes that Canadians have become much more aware since the 2008 election of Canada's role in propping up less-than-legitimate regimes in the Middle East. CJPME's Election Guide will enable people concerned about justice and peace in the Middle East to speak up confidently in this crucial election. "We can shape Canada's role in the world. Getting active in this decisive election is an opportunity no Canadian should pass up," concludes Woodley.
