I am very pleased to present the following Vancouver Sun statement along with an Independent Jewish Voices Canada (IJV) Op-Ed and member Corey Levine's letter printed in their newspaper, and posted on their website and the websites of the Ottawa Citizen and the Calgary Herald. We encourage you to add your comments on their websites.
Please take a moment to sign our email petition to the leaders of Canada's Israel lobby, calling on them to engage in public discussion and debate with IJV, rather than resorting to defamation against IJV and other supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
A Vancouver Sun editorial published on August 25 entitled “Green Party Lost Its Way” made certain statements about Independent Jewish Voices and, by association, Corey Levine, based on reports from other media and advocacy groups. In particular, based on new information provided by IJV, the Vancouver Sun retracts its statements that IJV denies the Holocaust, supports Iran or encourages terrorism against Israelis. The Vancouver Sun apologizes for not providing proper attribution and to IJV and Corey Levine for the unsubstantiated statements.
