Letter from Ruth Abrams & Response from the Office of Pierre Poilievre,Leader of Official Opposition
From Ruth Abrams
WHEN WILL OUR GOVERNMENT ADDRESS IRAN’S BLATANT INTRUSION INTO CANADIAN LIFE?
Dear Mr. Poilievre, Although sanctioned by the Canadian government, Iran’s officially defined and funded proxy, Press TV has been allowed to finance, promote and whip up hatred at Al Quds Day festivals, chanting genocidal slogans, praising terrorists, and creating a toxic environment. Why is this being tolerated? Ruth Abrams
Response from the Office of Pierre Poilevre, Leader of the Official Opposition
Dear Ms. Abrams:
On behalf of the Hon. Pierre Poilievre, thank you for your message. We appreciate that you took the time to share your thoughts and concerns with us on antisemitism.
Conservatives oppose all actions and groups promoting antisemitism. Deputy Leader of the Opposition, Melissa Lantsman, tweeted on the Al Quds Day 2023 Hatefest here: https://twitter.com/MelissaLantsman/status/1647444078500429825?s=20.
We will continue to stand up against Iranian oppression, anti-Semitism, and messages of hate. It is unnerving that Al-Quds Day rallies yet again have targeted the people of Israel and Jews across the world. Conservatives believe that all free and democratic nations must stand together against terrorism and tyranny.
We will keep your message in mind moving forward.
Once again, thanks for reaching out regarding this matter.
Office of the Leader of the Official Opposition
