Statement by Green Party of Canada, March 29, 1999
Victoria, B.C. The Green Party of Canada deplores the involvement of Canada in yet another questionable US-led enterprise. Canada's support for NATO acting unilaterally will undermine the legitimacy of the United Nations and the International Court of Justice, and will jeopardize any role Canada can play as an independent credible voice for peace.
Even NATO is in violation of its own charter which calls for defensive action only. This cannot be construed as defensive. Furthermore, the Green Party of Canada has expressed grave concern about the endorsement, by the Red/Green alliance in Germany, of the NATO strikes.
