Green Party of Canada on International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons
(Ottawa) – Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party of Canada and MP for Saanich–Gulf Islands, has issued the following statement for UN International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons:
“The Cold War ended a generation ago, yet to this day the doctrine of nuclear deterrence continues to pose an unacceptable risk to humanity and indeed to life on our planet.
The more than 3,000 nuclear warheads that remain active around do not make us safer – rather, they are an impediment to peace talks and meaningful conflict resolution.
The Green Party of Canada and Green parties around the world stand firmly with the global movement for nuclear disarmament.”
