World Beyond War (WBW) in Canada works toward an end to all war.
Join our mailing list here.
With a long history of supporting peace and human rights — from accepting slaves escaping from the United States prior to the Civil War, to welcoming those avoiding the modern-day slavery of forced participation in the immoral U.S. war against the people of Vietnam — Canadians are proud to be part of World Beyond War. We in Canada recognize that all war is unjust; that the harm any war causes far outweighs whatever good, mainly for the ruling elite, it may accomplish; that civilized people can settle inevitable differences in civilized ways, and that Canada’s voice in accomplishing the end of war is vital.
Despite the direction our government took in the last decade under Steven Harper, and the tepid steps to change that direction that have been announced by Justin Trudeau, we, the citizens of Canada, will not rest until our country takes its rightful place as an example of peace and diplomacy. There is much work to be done, and we are willing to do it. If you would like to join us, please register, and become a part of history.
Robert Fantina is the WBW country coordinator in Canada. He moved from the United States to Canada in 2005, seeking a more peaceful environment, where the will of the people could be relied upon to direct government actions. He is a journalist, writing extensively about issues related to war and peace, and is the author of several books, including Empire, Racism and Genocide: A History of U.S. Foreign Policy. When residing in the U.S., he was actively opposed to the invasion and occupation of Iraq, and worked for reasonable gun control.
