Letter Regarding Canada’s Absence from Multilateral Process to Ban Nuclear Weapons

On October 6, 2017, The Canadian Council of Churches sent a letter to The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, addressing concerns about the country’s absence from a multilateral negotiation process to ban nuclear weapons.

The letter states:

“In particular, we wish to express our disappointment in Canada’s absence from the recent multilateral negotiations under the auspices of the United Nations on a “legally binding instrument to prohibit nuclear weapons – as well as their nuclear-reliant allies, such as Canada and most NATO members – negotiations resulted in a treaty establishing an explicit prohibition of nuclear weapons, which was adopted by a clear majority at the United Nations on July 7.”
