Statement on the International Day of UN Peacekeepers

Please read the following statement from Elizabeth May, MP for Saanich–Gulf Islands and Leader of the Green Party of Canada, recognising the International Day of UN Peacekeepers:

“Today, on the International Day of UN Peacekeepers, we thank peacekeepers and honour all those who have laid down their lives in the pursuit of peace, safety and stability. Canadians are proud of our legacy on peacekeeping, but over the last decade, our leadership in UN missions has been lacking. We need to return to Pearsonian tradition and again make Canada an ambassador for peace.”
