Taking a stance: Canada will not attend UN conference on racism because of negative focus on Israel, immigration minister says; Ottawa has lost faith in Durban process, whose agenda promotes racism, he says.

 

Canada will not attend Durban III, a United Nations conference on racism next September in South Africa because the event has negatively targeted Israel, the country’s immigration minister said Thursday.

 

 

Minister Jason Kenney said Canada has lost faith in the Durban process, a conference that began in 2001 to develop strategies to defeat racism.

 

“Canada is clearly committed to the fight against racism, but the Durban process commemorates an agenda that actually promotes racism rather than combats it.”
