Canadian firms also sell billions in arms in oppressive regimes such as those in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. Armoured vehicles and other Canadian equipment have been used against masses of innocent citizens by these goverments, citizens whose only crime was demanding the same rights and freedons we Canadians value and for which members of our own military have risked and given their lives.

Dear Finance Minister Flaherty and members of the CPP Investment Board,

I have just signed a petition expressing my conviction that the Canada Pension Fund should divest from companies that supply Israel with military, police, surveillance and/or prison related products.

By continuing to hold shares in such companies, the CPPIB remains complicit in aiding and abetting Israel's violations of international law.

Please ensure that the CPP divest from such companies.

The petition and the research that inspired it can be accessed here:

Yours sincerely,

Continuing to support Israeli Apartheid & atrocities against Palestinian children is an affront to every decent Canadian. Internationally, Canadas reputation as an honest broker of peace has been destroyed putting our men & women in uniform 'in harms way' needlessly. Any attacks harming our soldiers & peacekeepers now lie squarely on the shoulders of the Harper government & its ministers. Any harm coming to the members of our heroic armed forces as a result is something that will follow each Conservative member for the rest of their lives. A relatively tiny but persistant consequence for the actions of a minority opinion that does not represent in the least the views of Canadians.

1,248Annette LengyelCalgary, ABCanada

I am shocked and very troubled to know that my government is a partner to apartheid and gross human rights violations with Israel in the terrorism of the people of Palestine, through OUR PENSION PLAN! This is morally and ethically revolting. This together with your use of my tax dollars to support the Israeli criminal enterprise militarily and financially and through trade is unacceptable. I urge you to check your humanity before the Almighty God to see what you are a party to. Please choose life and end the devastation and ethnic cleansing of the poor people of Palestine and stand against the demons of war.

It is bad enough that Canada, "the nation of Peacekeepers", is in Afganistan to kill tribesmen, women and children. It is an additional shame that we are supporting a war of extermination in Gaza and occupation in Palestine, through our investments in Israeli military industry by Canada's Pension Plan. The Holocaust that engulfed Europe's Jews horrified me when I first learned of it when I was young. Likewise, the racism and apartheid practiced by the Israelis stirred similar revulsion in me when the victims turned persecuters. It is a priority that Canadians NOT have any connection to the Israeli arms industry through our pension inverstment portfolios. Racism and persecution is wrong, no matter who is doing it, and we should not be supporting it, even tangentally.

No people of conscience can support Israeli's arrogant, aggressive, profiteering behaviour toward Palestine.

I used to fully support Israel, because I like Judaism, but ... the State of Israel treats some people very badly, because of something nasty done by a third party. It really practices collective punishment, and violates international law repeatedly. You can hardly fault Palestinians for objecting to this. Nor should you discount that Iran and Syria ship arms into that area, and you probably want them to stop - so why shouldn't we lead by example? And send a message to the Government of Israel at the same time. They need to hear "smarten up!"

One would think that after the pogroms and the Holocaust that the Jews suffered, that they who live in Israel would not oppress another people, in this case, the Palestinians.Anti-Semitism is growing because of the Israeli governments unjust refusal to allow the Palestinians the homeland promised over 60 years ago ,Palestine.

I, as a Canadian pensioner, am 100% against any CPP-investment in any company dealing with military hardware, software, etc., least of all for Israel. This is a country known to possess weapons of mass destruction, including atomic bombs, to blow up half our planet Earth. I and future generations want to live in peace on this planet. The CPP must be invested in peaceful organizations!

I wish that the Jewish people of Israel and the Palestinian Arab people in Israel and the Occupied Territories are treated as human beings deserving of their human rights. Profits at the expense of innocent people on both sides of this matter are not adding to peace for us all. I will not apologize for my idealism. My concern is that Canada has a Public Security Agreement with Israel (2008) that appears to now brings us Israeli drones as part of our military procurement.

644Nadia SultanToronto, OntarioCanada

To Mr. Flaherty and the CPP Investment Board.
It is appalling to learn that a respectable country such as Canada, has allowed its reputation to be tarnished by investing of all things...our CPP funds with companies supplying Israel with military, police, surveillance and / or prison-related products. Have we lost all sense of conscience? Do we not have any principles in life? I ask that you stand up for that which is right, and cease these investments immediately, and instead, for other respectable means in which to diversify our CPP investments.
If we continue to do this, and ignore the implorable acts that the Israeli government continuously promotes, Israel will never be called to account for anything, and they will hold the upper hand, despite their disrepect of International Laws and of their fellow human beings.
It is abhorrent to think that we are in any way, aiding and abetting the Israeli government and its horrendous acts against their neighbours, who are only asking for the right to live like all other human beings, maintaining a respect equal to that of Israeli citizens. Please, listen to your Canadian citizens...keep the investments of the Canadian people "clean" and free from any hint of support for a country which is in total violation of the International Human Rights Laws....and continues to ignore what the world stage is requiring of them. For some reason, they feel they are above reproach. Let us show them that we will not have anything to do in relation to the support of Israel, so long as it continues to practice such activities as they do constantly with Palestinians..
Thank you sincerely,
Nadia Sultan.

As a supporter of justice for the Palestinian people, I am greatly disturbed by the knowledge that the CPP has $1.5 billion in share in firms supplying Israel with military, police, surveillance and prison-related products and services.

I hope that in the name of justice for the Palestinian people, CPP will divest from the firms referred to above.

No. I do not want to profit from the arms industry, no matter where these instruments of death are to be used. I am more than willing to be a less well-off, if that is the result of Canada divesting from things that kill people. Israel is not innocent of the blood of innocents. Would that it was, but it is not. My government needs to stop deluding itself on that score. The death toll is ten Palestinians to one Jewish Israeli. Acknowledging that is not antisemitic. Not acknowledging that is racist, dishonest, and covers my country, Canada, with shame.

​This is absolutely outrageous! Who is directly responsible for making these investments? The person or persons making these decisions need to be working under the moral guidance of a strict code of ethics that include not making such questionable investments.
I grew up with the sense that Canada is a great peacekeeping nation. Over the past 11 years I've noticed a tremendous shift in our policies and international involvement, this is quickly leading to Canada loosing it's highly valued place in the minds of people around the world.

Dear Finance Minister Flaherty and members of the CPP Investment Board,

I have just signed a petition expressing my conviction that the Canada Pension Fund should divest from companies that supply Israel with military, police, surveillance and/or prison related products.

By continuing to hold shares in such companies, the CPPIB remains complicit in aiding and abetting Israel's violations of international law.

Please ensure that the CPP divest from such companies.

The petition and the research that inspired it can be accessed here:

Yours sincerely,

Brenda Pappa

89Joanna ZilselGibsons, BCCanada

I am a woman of Jewish heritage who lost family members to the Nazi Holocaust and who lived in Israel for several years as a young child. In March 2009 I visited Gaza as a member of an international peace delegation, and witnessed first hand the devastation wrought there by Israel's 22 day assault, 'Operation Cast Lead': hospital wings destroyed by white phosphorous; food warehouses burned to the ground; mosques, schools, sewage treatment plants and entire neighborhoods reduced to rubble by Israeli bombs, all in violation of international law. I implore the CPP board to divest from any company involved in Israeli military activities..

What a shame that you, as elected officials DO NOT even have the conscions to investigate these issues on your own. And that it takes a public outcry for you to take a stance on these issue. SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!

I hope your childeren and grandchilderen are taught one day in public schools that UNDER YOUR WATCH the candian government invested in these corporations on THEIR (AND OUR) behalf.

SHAME!

By adopting a very one-sided, war-promoting approach to the Middle East, Canada has become complicit in the horrifying humanitarian tragedy in Gaza and the bloodshed on both sides of the conflict.

It's about time that Canadians will realise the injustices which are done by Israel and stand up against it by forcing organizations, pension plans and others to divest from companies who support the occupation and ethnic cleansing by Israel.

Just as in the case of withdrawing pension support from apartheid South Africa, withdrawal of support by CPP could help move Israel's policies towards more positive change for all.

As a contributor to the CPP I am absolutely appalled that Canada is investing in companies that supply israel with military and prison products. This is a shameful day for Canada!

48Gary KeenanVancouver , B.C.Canada

By investing in firms that supply Israel with military, police, surveillance and prison-related products and services, the Canadian Pension Plan is complict in Israel's belligerent, illegal and brutal occupations of Palestinian and other Arab lands and its well documented violations of hard-won international humanitarian law.

We all have difficulties in 'cleaning' our personal, family and other investments. This, however, does not relieve us of the moral responsibility to attempt to do so. The same applies to our country and our collective investment we call the CPP. This is not an anti-Semitic initiative, or an anti-Israel initiative. It is about morality in public policy and social justice.

There is so much information available for anyone anywhere who takes the time to do the research regarding Israel's rogue militarists and their manipulations to maintain permanent wars and to sell security/surveillanceor prison related products and services throughout the world in order to line the pockets of the profiteers of war and fear mongering that CPP ought to be ashamed of this investment.
