We are calling on the Government of Canada to intervene in sale of Canadian-based MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates to US company ATK which derives more than half of its $4 billion US in annual revenue from military contracts, including cluster bombs, depleted uranium rounds and landmines.
We support American-born engineer Paul Cottle's decision to quit for ethical reasons.
We ask Federal Industry Minister Jim Prentice to review the sale, keeping in mind the death and destruction ATK products cause around the world.
We as members of the global community SAY NO TO THIS AQUISITION!
We are proud of the CANADARM and do not want this Canadian icon associated in any way with this company.
