What is Canada’s position on the eve of the UN Binding Treaty talks, October 26
The next round of talks on the proposed United Nations Binding Treaty on transnational corporations and human rights begins on October 26.
It’s unclear what the Canadian government’s position is at this time.
While a defender who PBI accompanies tells us that some corporations and states have been blocking the creation of this Treaty, we have also been told that Canada has largely been absent from the process so far.
Now is an urgent time to tell the Prime Minister and Canada’s representatives at the UN in Geneva and New York that Canada should support the creation of a legally-binding Treaty that recognizes the important role played by human rights defenders.
You can do so by clicking on our Urgent Action that allows you to send an email to the Prime Minister and his representatives at the UN.
