    It was a brave decision to publically support the Palestinian struggle for justice. It demonstrated that you are a person of integrity willing to stand up for what is right even in face of the inevitable bullying from those who work to silence all criticism of Israel. I hope others in the NDP will follow your lead.

    I’m waiting for the day that Canadian politicians can speak freely and support Palestinian rights and freedom without being attacked and prosecuted for freedom of speech

    I will always remember Niki Ashton’s powerful speech on the preventable deaths of Indigenous children — at the time in Makwa Sahgaiehcan. Now she is speaking up for indigenous Palestinians, just as she continues to act in solidarity with First Nations. She is an example to all those who believe in social justice, and for that we are grateful.

    If our politicians can’t have freedom of speech and thought, who can?
