    It’s about time a politician stood up to the genocide we all know is happening. Thank you!

    As a Jewish-Canadian and a person of conscience, I fully support Niki. May she become our next Prime Minister.

    As a born and raised Canadian, I’m shocked and appalled that the vast majority of the Canadian populace is completely clueless / ignorant about what is going on. Anyone who speaks out against waste, suffering, and injustice is deserving of all our respect.

    The Bnai Brith pamplet critical of you (Niki Ashton) is certainly a great badge of honour. Please make strong public comments critical of Israel and critical of organizations and parties that uncritically and unconditionally “support Israel” while diminishing its constant violations of international law, UN resolutions and Palestinian human rights.

    In these divisive days, when so many are pitted against one another, I admire Niki Ashton for standing up for basic human rights and dignity for all.

    Our right to free speech and freedom of expression has been hijacked when it comes to a few issues, and Israel-Palestine conflict looms large on this, where Canada’s position has become ridiculously one sided in favour of Israel. I fully support Niki for speaking up for Palestine.
