Initiated by Guy Roy from Lévis, Quebec

Original language of petition: French

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • The blockade of Cuba has lasted 60 years, and Canada is opposed to it;
  • The United States’s threat of military intervention against Venezuela persists today, and the Lima Group, of which Canada is a member, is opposed to such intervention;
  • President Trump prohibited exports of medical supplies to South America from the United States;
  • The United States’s position poses a serious threat to the residents of these countries, particularly during the coronavirus pandemic; and
  • Cuba sent doctors to several countries around the world to help fight the pandemic.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to reiterate to the United States, through the Minister of Foreign Affairs, its opposition to any military intervention in Venezuela, in accordance with its position in the Lima Group, and to call for the lifting of the blockade of Cuba and the restrictions on shipments of medical supplies from the United States to South America, as it did for itself.
