e-464 (World peace)

Initiated by Saul Arbess from Victoria, British Columbia

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • There are proven methodologies for the non-violent resolution of conflict, as well as proactive domestic and foreign actions which can reduce the likelihood of violent conflict;
  • It is in the interests of all peoples to reduce violent conflict on the planet. It’s in our interest ethically and morally, but also for the sake of self-preservation. No citizen of this world is immune to threats of war and terrorism; and
  • The Government of Canada has the opportunity to increase its resources and structures to support peacekeeping, peacebuilding and peace diplomacy. A Minister of Peace, with a fully resourced Department of Peace, could provide leadership in offering critical knowledge and methodologies, ensuring Canada’s commitment to the promotion of peace at home and abroad.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to establish a Federal Department of Peace during the 42nd Parliament.
