We, the undersigned, are very upset and of the opinion that our Prime Minister is making a huge political and (more importantly) moral mistake by deciding to invite George Bush to our country. As the recent survey conducted by the Canadian Defence and Foreign Affairs Insititue and the Dominion Institute show clearly - fully 78 percent of Canadians believe that America\'s foreign policy is indicative of the behaviour of a \"rogue nation\". Inviting Bush to Canada is tantamount to a slap in the face to the people of our country - a nation that has a proud history of being peacemakers in a world filled with so much war and strife.
We are among the majority of Canadians who cannot accept the policies of the present administration of the U.S. as we firmly believe the bottom line to be that this American administration, apart from being bent on war, the curbing of human rights, the continued destruction of the environment and the militarization of space, is in fact a real threat to the sovereignty of our country and all we stand for as a peaceful, nuclear free nation.
In signing this petition, we request that Prime Minister Paul Martin indefinitely postpone the invitation to George Bush out of respect of the wishes of the majority of people in Canada.
This petition has been initiated by concerned citizens of Canada.
