Climate Action: Historic win also a missed opportunity 

by Lyn Adamson For the first time ever Toronto City Council has designated funds to combat climate change.  TransformTO, the climate program of the City’s Environment and Energy Division, developed 8 initiatives, at a cost of $1.6 million, to kickstart the City’s actions toward a goal of 30% reduction of CO2 emissions by 2020, and 80% reduction by 2050. TransformTO is a new program and as such was fighting against the City’s austerity approach that was calling for cuts across the board . On Wednesday Council adopted a budget funding three of the programs for a total of $330,000, or 20% of the funds.  Many activists sought to see the full funding of $1.6 million voted in by Council.  A grassroots campaign encouraging constituents to contact their councillors in support of full funding nearly carried the day.   However the effort fell short by 2 votes in a 23-21 decision .

VOW Appalled by Targeted Hate Mail and Threats

For immediate release February 21 2017 Canadian Voice of Women for Peace (VOW) is appalled by the recent targeted hate mails and threats towards MP Iqra Khalid and other politicians. No one should be threatened or face any kind of discrimination based on faith. Khalid said she received more that 50,000 responses to the motion, many of them were “direct hate, direct discrimination and direct threats.” The motion she proposed, M-103, calls on a House Committee to look at better ways to eliminate “systematic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia” in Canada.

VOW supports and backs all efforts to eliminate Islamophobia, including M-103. VOW extends support and sends thoughts to MP Iqra Khalid who courageously proposed the motion at a time when it’s most...

Resolutions VOW Annual General Meeting 2016

 Abolition of nuclear weapons Co-sponsored by 57 nations, L41 calls for a conference ‘to negotiate a legally binding instrument to prohibit nuclear weapons, leading towards their total elimination’.  It was adopted on October 27, 2016 with 123 in favour, 16 abstentions, and 38 against, including Canada along with the United States, France, Israel, Russia, and the United Kingdom.  There will be a further vote at the General Assembly in December 2016. Canadian Voice of Women for Peace calls on Canada to change its vote to yes, and support Resolution L.41 at the General Assembly, signalling its intent to contribute constructively to the discussions to be launched in March 2017, and further that the participation of women in the discussion be ensured.   Demilitarization of the Mind Believing that political militarism stands in the way of enduring peace, democracy and the development of civil society, and opposing the assumption that nationhood implies a significant and growing military, Canadian Voice of Women for Peace calls for the Canadian government to: Rescind...
