CIC chair Moshe Ronen talks in Winnipeg on government policy.
Moshe Ronen, chair of the Canada Israel Committee, said that his organization is prepared in the event that there is a change of government in Canada. Ronen, who is also vice-president of the World Jewish Congress, spoke to a gathering of the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg on Dec. 4.
”We have continually been in contact with everyone in the House of Commons and we’ve insulated ourselves should there be a new Canadian government in place. We’ve never played partisan politics. We’ve invested in all of the political parties,” said Ronen. “We’ve tried to keep Israel from being a wedge issue.”
Ronen said that the Bloc Quebecois’ Gil Duceppe “is a strong friend of Israel, who identifies more with Israel than with the Palestinians.” The two were in Israel recently and “he [Duceppe] agreed not to make Israel a wedge issue in Canadian politics.” Ronen said that New Democratic party leader Jack Layton has also agreed to this.
