Greens add support for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel to official party policies

OTTAWA — Canadian Greens voted at their convention Sunday morning to add boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel to their roster of party policies, despite their leader opposing the resolution.

A polarizing debate took over the convention floor during the weekend’s final plenary session.

The resolution was brought forward by the party’s shadow justice critic, Dimitri Lascaris.

Before the vote, Lascaris listed political parties and figures — including Archbishop Desmond Tutu and physicist Stephen Hawking — that have endorsed BDS.

    Ahhhhh…..dimitri Lascaris….and his wife FARIDA…..Muslims??

    Do I smell the stench of antisemitism imbibed with ones own mother’s milk ?

    We shall see soon enough if the Greens have been infiltrated by the enemy of civilisation.

    No surprise at all. Greens are the watermelons of politics: green on the outside and red communist throughout the inside.

    • The Greens are despicable people. One of my family members got mixed up with them — a sincere openhearted, peace-loving person who always helps the “down and out”. Once the Greens convinced him that they are the true representatives of the “down and out” now he’s pretty much indoctrinated into everything militant Left, anti-Semitic, anti-free speech and potentially violent.

      If I ever met Elizabeth May in a dark alley I would slap her silly — I don’t appreciate that her Party has incited my family member to embrace violence and I think if she tasted a little violence herself it might help to reform this lady’s despicable militant fascist-Commie influence on our youth.

    Well…..Dimitri is a commie name so I’m even more suspicious….

    General Jack Ripper felt as I do today.
    I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration…Communist indoctrination and Communist subversion to pollute our essence.

    Where does MR Lascaris stand on fluoridation?……and MRS Lascaris ….where does she stand on FGM?

    • Alain

      Why and how is Dimitri a “commie” name? It is a rather common Greek and Russian name and perhaps elsewhere, and neither Greece or Russia are communist countries at present.

  • Cat-astrophe

    Funny, I support boycott, divestment and sanctions against all official party’s.

  • Is there a list of Israeli products?

    I’ll just run out and buy some.

    Naot, for example. Dead Sea skin products. Those fancy little oranges that President’s Choice sells.

      Best, most comfortable footwear ever (but it helps if you have a narrow foot)!

      • My sister uses them and swears by them.

        • k1962

          I love them too. They come with nice build in arch support which you don’t see in many shoes or sandals.

      Magula pistol magazine loaders are a fine product. They work well on just about every pistol magazine out there, from the old Walther P38 mags to Glock 17 mags

      I would also recommend if you are into firearms accessories and Israeli militaria.

      you are useing one, no mater what platfor you use. 😉

  • Spatchcocked

    Alain…..lighten up.
    If I say Stalins mom was named Dimitri that’s how it is….if it helps inflame the masses to rise up and riot then it’s cool.

    They feed us bullshit so we return the favour….Alain? Not a Limey name so like how did you come by these quaint notions of sportsmanship and fair play?

    How about divestment and sanctions against islam as their followers as they are totally against Western thought and 21st century culture.

    • V10_Rob

      Ask them if we should also divest from countries that regard women as property and homosexuality as a capital crime, and watch them squirm.

    • vwVwwVwv

      they produce nothing but oil

      • infedel

        …which we found for them and run their fields….the West shall no longer be slaves to islam…bring all our techs back and refuse to trade with them and see where they will be. They have so many lobby groups fighting against our oil exploration in our lands…and then their halah scam.

        • vwVwwVwv

          we have no idea what actually to do to them, as long as we
          do not agree on this one i see no end to islamic expansion.
          what to do to us they have a whole religion for it.
          we are contering, defending, blocking,
          if we want viktory defense
          is not the right way.

  • Minicapt

    Trust Jay Currie , they said; and so we did. Now this.
