Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • There are no direct flights between Canada and Lebanon, since the Canadian government rescinded the license granted to Air Canada back in 2003;
  • There are direct flights between Beirut and many European countries which makes the "Security threat" an invalid reason;
  • It is an extreme economical benefit for both countries and for the Lebanese diaspora living in Canada to allow direct flights between Canada and Lebannon.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Minister of Transport to restore the license and remove the ban to operate direct flights from Canada to Beirut.
