Ballet BC, You're not OUR Ambassador when you perform in Israel!
Oct 12, 2018 —
Although Ballet BC has not responded to our petition directly, they did finally send a statement to the media that said in part: "We have been invited to perform as a part of “CanaDance 2019,” a festival supported by the Canadian Embassy in Tel Aviv at the Suzanne Dellal Centre along with two other Canadian dance companies. We are honoured to be a part of this festival and to serve as ambassadors for British Columbia and Canada."
So all 3000 plus people who have signed the petition are being told your voice does not matter - Ballet BC is nonetheless an ambassador for BC and Canada. Furthermore, we now know both the Canadian government and two other unnamed Canadian dance companies are also part of this travesty.
