Challenging Canada’s $19 Billion Warplane Purchase
Start: Thursday, October 15, 2020• 7:00 PM • Eastern Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-04:00)
End: Thursday, October 15, 2020• 8:30 PM • Eastern Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-04:00)
Join NDP MP Randall Garrison, Green Party MP Paul Manly, Senator Marilou McPhedran, poet, activist and King's College professor El Jones, and researcher and activist Tamara Lorincz on October 15 for a webinar about the social, ecological, and economic impact of Canada’s plan to purchase new fighter jets.
Are 88 new cutting-edge fighter jets required to protect Canadians? Or are they designed to enhance the air force’s ability to join belligerent US and NATO wars? How has Canada employed fighter jets in the past? What are the climate impacts of these jets? What else could the $19 billion be used for?
The event will include a social media rally. More information coming shortly.
This webinar is organized by the Canadian Foreign Policy Institute, World BEYOND War, and co-sponsored by Peace Quest. Canadian Dimension is the media sponsor for this event.
