MP Larry Miller urges Minister Baird to Cancel Aid to Palestine

Ottawa, ON – Larry Miller, MP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, has sent a letter to the Honourable John Baird, Minister of Foreign Affairs, urging him to cancel all aid to Palestine.

This letter comes in light of the recent decision by the United Nations to grant the Palestinian Authority Observer Status at the UN. Canada voted against this decision at the UN.

“The Palestinian Authority is run by Hamas, a recognized terrorist group,” said Miller. “I am strongly opposed to handing over hard-working tax-payers’ dollars to a group like this and I urge the Minister to cancel all aid.”
