Currently there is a pressure from the pro-Israel lobby to move Bill 168 to Third Reading by the Ontario government.
Bill 168 passed Second Reading on February 27, 2020 and was sent to the Standing Committee of Justice Policy.
Bill 168 requires the Government of Ontario to be guided by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Working Definition of Antisemitism.
The IHRA when it introduced the definition stressed that it was only a “working definition,” and “non-legally binding.”
However, Bill 168 proposes to ignore the IHRA’s caution and insert this working definition directly into the Legislation Act, which would give it formal legal effect.
Your Voice Matters
Bill 168 as do most private member bills could simply never proceed. It could also move into Review by the Standing Committee for Justice Policy. Though unusual, it could move to Third Reading without any Review.
Write a letter to indicate this Bill should not proceed, but if the government insists, then a comprehensive, open review by the Standing Committee of Justice Policy is essential.
Palestinian Canadian Community Centre - Palestine House and Just Peace Advocates have joined together in the Action Network initative to ask you to write to all members of the Ontario legslative assembly to let them know that Bill 168 should not move forward.
