  • Petitioned Prime Minister Stephen Harper

This petition was delivered to:

Prime Minister Stephen Harper

Meet with Chief Theresa Spence immediately as per her request.

    1. Petition by

      A TS

      Canada

As Jewish Canadians, we are writing to ask you to meet with Chief Theresa Spence, leader to leader. Chief Spence has taken a courageous stand in the face of ongoing disrespect of treaty rights through legislation such as Bill C-45 and disregard for the ecological health of Indigenous land.

As Jews living in Canada, we are aware that many of our families immigrated here to escape oppression and violence in other countries. We are grateful to the Indigenous people of Turtle Island, and aware of the ongoing injustices done to them by Canadian governments. We wish to contribute to building a respectful, nation-to-nations relationship with First Nations.

Chief Spence has opened the door to a new era of integrity, coherence and justice in the relationship between Canada and First Nations. Please meet with her immediately, and walk through that door on behalf of Canadians.

To:
Prime Minister Stephen Harper
Meet with Chief Theresa Spence immediately as per her request.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The world watches Canadian Prime Minister and is so far appalled at his inhumanity.

      When will right relations take the place of abuse for commercial gains?
