Cancellation of weapons testing urged

anon — December 1984

The Canadian Peace Congress, in a statement issued on November 8, “called on the newly-elected Prime Minister Brian Mulroney to annul the Canada-US Weapons Testing Agreement signed by the previous Liberal government.”

The statement was issued in response to the announcement that the US Government has made six new requests under the umbrella weapons-testing pact with Canada, known as the CAN US Testing and Evaluation Agreement.

“If the new government under Mulroney wants to receive support from the broad and growing peace movement — it will need to do more than speak fine words of concern for world peace.”

“Mr. Mulroney will need to show through deeds that Canada will not participate in the spiralling arms race which will cripple a recovery in our economy.” .

Because jobs are the number one priority for the new Prime Minister, the statement continued, “he should realize that monies spent for military equipment will create fewer jobs than monies on health, education, social programs or anywhere else in the economy.”
