“Canada (Conservative Government) used its United Nations speaking slot Monday (at the United Nations) to lambaste opponents of Israel as no better than the appeasers who allowed fascism and communism to flourish before the Second World War.” http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2011/09/26/john-baird-foreign-affairs-palestine_n_982202.html
Dalton McGuinty won the election which he polarized by claiming Jewish schools were divisive and should not be funded, while putting his own children through publicly funded Catholic schools.
Our University Campuses
The Conservative Party over the last 4 years, led by Thornhill’s Conservative MPP Peter Shurman initiated a unanimous resolution condemning “Israeli Apartheid Week” and was actively engaged in helping Jewish students on campus to try and combat this nefarious campaign.
(Comment by Blog Administrator: under the leadership of Bernie Farber, CEO of the Canadian Jewish Congress, Interfaith Programs were encouraged with the Muslim Student Association, a group controlled the Muslim Brotherhood )
The Union Factor
“Working Families”, a non-profit labour-sponsored lobby group, was formed by several unions to help defeat the Conservatives. They have launched a multi-million dollar advertising campaign against the Conservatives, on TV, radio and in print advertisements. They are strongly opposed to helping Jewish schools and support the Liberals on most issues, particularly education.
Even more disturbing, is the recent discovery of a connection between the Liberals and Sid Ryan, former president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees and current president of the Ontario Federation of Labour. Sid Ryan led the attempt to bar Israeli academics from Ontario universities, over the alleged “atrocities” committed by Israel in Gaza. In 2009, when he was president of CUPE, Ryan led a successful bid to have the union urge a boycott of Israel because of what it said were, “apartheid-like practices of the Israeli state.” Liberal Party has joined forces with Sid Ryan, as detailed in a Sept. 12th article by Christina Blizzard in the Toronto Sun: http://www.lfpress.com/comment/columnists/christina_blizzard/2011/09/12/18672496.html. What is “shocking” about this, notes Ms. Blizzard, “is that the Liberals got into bed with him (Sid Ryan)” The Liberals don’t hide this relationship, as they have distributed literature in which Sid Ryan is quoted in support of Liberal policy.
The fact that Dalton McGuinty displays approval of Sid Ryan on campaign literature should be of concern to all.

Every Shabbat , the Lodzer Holocaust Congregation Synagogue says a Prayer for Canada, which is currently under the leadership of the Honourable Stephen Harper and the Conservative Government:
Prayer For Canada
Our G-d and G-d of our ancestors, we invoke Your blessing upon our country, on the Government of Canada, the Prime Minister and all who exercise just and rightful authority. Instruct them from your Torah, that they may administer all affairs of state in justice and equity, that peace and security, happiness and prosperity, right and freedom may forever abide among us.
Unite all the inhabitants of our country, whatever their origin and creed, into a bond of true fellowship to banish hatred and bigotry and to safeguard the ideals and free institutions, which are our country’s glory.
May this land under Your Providence be an influence for good throughout the world, uniting humanity in peace and freedom and helping to fulfill the vision of Your Prophets: “Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall we learn war any more.” “For all people, both great and small shall know the Lord.”
The Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada on Israel 60 anniversary
“Unfortunately, Israel at 60 remains a country under threat, threatened by groups and regimes who deny, to this very day, its right to exist. And why? Make no mistake. Look beyond the thinly veiled rationalizations – because they hate Israel, just as much as they hate the Jewish people. Our government believes that those who threaten Israel also threaten Canada, ” — The Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, PC, MP, Prime Minister of Canada Prime Minister of Canada firstname.lastname@example.org
