The Hill Times interviews CJPME about Canada’s attempts to block an ICJ opinion on Israel’s occupation

On August 23, 2023, CJPME Vice President Michael Bueckert was interviewed by Neil Moss of the Hill Times about Canada’s opposition to the pending legal advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice regarding the legality of Israel’s occupation.

“‘Canada has decided that its role is to support Israel in blocking or shutting down these attempts,’ [Bueckert] said. ‘It’s absolutely an embarrassment to Canada that this is the approach that Canada has taken. It’s really unfortunate and hypocritical given Canada’s strong support for international law, in other cases such as Russia and Ukraine.’… ‘The contradictions are just becoming so clear between the reality on the ground and Canada’s response to it,’ Bueckert said.”
