Canada should fund UN agency that housed terrorist rocket launchers: NDP

OTTAWA – The NDP wants the government to give money to the United Nations agency in Gaza that Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird rebuked this week because terrorist rocket launchers were found in one of its schools. In a letter Friday, the party’s foreign affairs critic, Paul Dewar, urged the minister to help the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

“UNRWA has warned that its supplies could run out at any time, and is requesting an urgent contribution of $60 million from the international community to continue providing food, medicine and shelter,” Dewar wrote.
