Review of the Year (2003) in Foreign Countries: Canada

By Harold M. Waller

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2004

Canada witnessed the end of Prime Minister Jean Chretien's tenure in office and his replacement by Paul Martin. Chretien had a track record of disappointing votes on Israel-related matters, but was the first Prime Minister to visit Israel as well as Auschwitz. Martin named prominent Jewish leaders to his cabinet. Canada has taken measures against terrorism, adding groups like Hezballah to its list of terrorist organizations. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation was found to provide unbalanced media coverage regarding Israel. New forms of anti-Israeli sentiment in the public are causing Jews to feel vulnerable, despite the decrease in conventional forms of antisemitism.
