An Appeal to the Canadian Parliament to Debate and Hold Public Hearings on the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons

By World BEYOND War, January 13, 2021

The UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons has been endorsed by 122 nations, and will become international law for more than 51 ratifying States on January 22, 2021, thus finally declaring nuclear weapons illegal.

Unfortunately, Canada boycotted negotiations in 2017 and has refused to sign or ratify this landmark Treaty. Nonetheless, the TPNW will have an impact even on nations not yet party to the treaty, and it is certainly not too late for Canada to sign on.

World BEYOND War has joined with organizations, grassroots groups, and individuals across Canada to call upon the Government of Canada to have Parliament debate and hold public hearings on the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and on Canada’s role in advancing global nuclear disarmament.

A full 3-page spread will be published in the Hill Times, Canada’s parliamentary paper, on January 20, 2021, to amplify this appeal to Parliament.
