BDS movement gaining momentum in Canada

Activists are increasingly advising consumers in Vancouver, British Columbia and Alberta NOT to buy products made by the Israelis. A Montreal-based group known as Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East is distributing stickers to be affixed on Israeli products.

The B-D-S is a global movement aimed at banning Israeli entities that are involved in the violation of Palestinian rights. Members of the movement boycott Israeli products and companies as well as cultural and academic institutions.

Meanwhile, a far-right Jewish group in Canada has written to the federal minister of public safety urging him to stop the anti-Israel movement.
