Canadians call on justice department to investigate IDF recruitment in Toronto schools

Canadian law makes it illegal to recruit soldiers for a foreign state. But, the line between enticing impressionable young people to oppress Palestinians and formal recruitment is unclear.

In an open letter signed by Noam Chomsky, Roger Waters, filmmaker Ken Loach, author Yann Martel, former MP Jim Manly, poet El Jones and more than 150 others call on the Canadian Justice Minister David Lametti to investigate the Israeli consulate for advertisements to recruitment Canadians into the Israel’s military, and possible military recruitment inside of Toronto schools. The letter and adjoining formal complaint asks the federal government on Monday to apply charges under the Foreign Enlistment Act against those recruiting Canadians, if such violations are found during an inquiry.

The complaint named Israeli government officials operating in Canada and specifies Toronto schools could also be enticing young minds to join the IDF under the pretext of cultural events held in classrooms with Israeli military representatives.
