IT AIN'T GONNA GET NO BETTER UNLESS WE START PRESSURING EVEN IF ONLY AT A LOWER LEVEL.

HERE IS ANARCHORE'S COMPREHENSIVE LIST
10. Canada Votes Alone for Israel
Only one out of 47 nations on UN rights panel to refuse to condemn military offensive in Gaza
Jan 13, 2009
OTTAWA–Canada stood alone before a United Nations human rights council yesterday, the only one among 47 nations to oppose a motion condemning the Israeli military offensive in Gaza.
The vote before the Geneva-based body shows the Stephen Harper government has abandoned a more even-handed approach to the Middle East in favour of unalloyed support of Israel, according to some long-time observers.
Thirty-three countries voted for the strongly worded motion, which called for an investigation into “grave” human rights violations by Israeli forces, while 13 nations, mostly European, abstained.
9. George Galloway Banned
It was en route to this speaking engagement that Galloway was grabbed and forbidden entrance to Canada based on a complaint from an accredited criminal terrorist in the JDL.
Saturday, 21 March 2009
George Galloway, a British Lord and member of the British Parliament, has been banned from Canada on security grounds, the country’s immigration service has confirmed.
Mr Galloway, a Respect Party MP, said the ban was “idiotic” and he would look at legal action to try to overturn it.
British media reported the decision was due to his views on Afghanistan and the presence of Canadian troops there.
Meanwhile, on that same day, Splitting the Sky is arrested in Calgary trying to arrest war criminal GW Bush as he speaks at a $1000 a plate meal.
8. Canada Boycotts Anti-Racism Conference, then Boycotts UN Speech
US, Israel and Canada Boycott 2009 anti-Racism Conference
…the decision was jointly made by Israel and the USA through senior officials of the U.S State Department and the Israeli Foreign Ministry after the issue was discussed in talks between U.S Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, and Israeli Foreign Minister, Tzipi Livni.

7. Ottawa to spend $1M on Holocaust education
Creation of task force marks 70th anniversary of Canada’s rejection of Jewish refugees
TheStar.com - Canada - Ottawa to spend $1M on Holocaust education
June 01, 2009
Canada will contribute nearly $1 million to create a three-year national task force to study and educate Canadians about the Holocaust.
Immigration Minister Jason Kenney announced the task force in Toronto this morning at the start of a conference on the Holocaust that marks the 70th anniversary of Canada’s refusal to let hundreds of Jewish refugees aboard the St. Louis from Hamburg, Germany dock in Canada. The ship was forced to return to Europe and the refugees dispersed to various countries. Many would not survive World War II.
6. Canada’s political leaders pledge allegiance to Bronfman’s Israel Lobby group

…practically falling over one another to show they love Jews ~ and Israel ~ best.
5. Israel beefing up diplomatic corps in Canada
Israeli Ambassador Miriam Ziv hailed this as a “positive” step for ties between the two countries, both diplomatic and cultural.
“It proves the importance the Israeli foreign ministry places on our relations with Canada. The bigger staff will enable us to do more,” Ziv told The CJN last week from her office at the Israeli Embassy in Ottawa.
THINKING CANADIANS WANT TO KNOW, "DO MORE" WHAT?
Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper’s government publicly supported Israel’s brutal assault on Gaza and voted alone at the UN Human Rights Committee in defense of Israel’s actions three weeks ago. Now Canada has taken over Israeli diplomacy. Literally.
In solidarity with Gaza, Venezuela expelled Israel’s ambassador at the start of the bombardment and then broke off all diplomatic relations two weeks later. Israel need not worry since Ottawa plans to help out. On 29 January, The Jerusalem Post reported that “Israel’s interests in Caracas will now be represented by the Canadian Embassy.” This means Canada is officially Israel, at least in Venezuela.
YET ANOTHER EMBARRASSING TIE TO THE PARIAH STATE.
3. Harper says criticism of Israel is Antisemitism
“I guess my fear is what I see happening in some circles is (an) anti-Israeli sentiment, really just as a thinly disguised veil for good old-fashioned anti-Semitism, which I think is completely unacceptable,” Harper said in an interview with Toronto’s CFRB radio.
2. Canadian Parliamentary Coalition to Combat Antisemitism
Stealth plan to criminalize criticism of Israel
Sun, 06 Dec 2009
One of the most recent ~ but almost totally unreported ~ developments in Canada is something called the Canadian Parliamentary Coalition to Combat Antisemitism (CPCCA). It is not an official parliamentary body but is a multi-party, voluntary association of 13 MPs. It is currently holding an inquiry into anti-semitism because, it says, “The extent and severity of anti-semitism is widely regarded as at its worst level since the end of the Second World War.
1. Canadian government says Christian churches anti-Semitic
OTTAWA ~ The United Church of Canada and other Canadian churches are demanding Prime Minister Stephen Harper explain why one of his cabinet ministers accused them of being anti-Semitic.
The United, Catholic and Anglican churches are part of KAIROS, an aid group that was shocked to hear Immigration Minister Jason Kenney say its funding was lifted as part of the Conservatives’ effort to cut off anti-Semitic organizations.
This is totally beyond the pale. How Kenney or Harper will attempt to spin this, there is no way this will not rebound badly. The story of this has flown around the globe verry quickly.
