An Open Letter to Party Leaders in the 2021 Federal Election of Canada, September 6, 2021 Print E-mail

 Re: Canada-Cuba Relations

I am writing to you on behalf of the Canadian Network On Cuba (CNC), which represents 22 Canada-Cuba friendship and solidarity organizations across Canada, ranging from Vancouver to Halifax, with over 50,000 in membership. Two of the CNC’s principal objectives are:

* bringing an end to U.S. economic sanctions against Cuba and
* ensuring that Canada’s relations with Cuba are based on equality and respect for the island nation's independence, sovereignty, and the right of self-determination.

Canadians - more than 3,900 - have already spoken clearly on these matters in two parliamentary petitions (e-2586 and e-3456) calling on the Government of Canada to actively oppose U.S. economic aggression against Cuba, and to ensure that Ottawa-Havana relations be maintained in accordance with established international law and diplomatic norms.

We, in the CNC, are concerned about the extreme and humiliating pressure that the government of the United States is exerting on third countries to support a Joint Statement - it has written - unjustly condemning Cuba.

Canadians have emphatically demanded an end to the U.S. siege of Cuba, with thousands declaring that Cuba is not alone by signing the parliamentary petition condemning Washington’s economic war and campaign of subversion against the heroic island nation.
