Amnesty International and UN Special Rapporteur Call on Trudeau Government Not to Appeal Federal Court’s West Bank Wines Decision
Today, Amnesty International Canada and Professor Michael Lynk, the United Nations Special Rapporteur for the human rights situation in the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967, addressed a letter to Canada’s Attorney-General, David Lametti, Canada’s Minister of International Trade, James Carr, and Canada’s Minister of Health, Ginette Petitpas Taylor
In their letter, they issue an urgent call to the Trudeau Government not to appeal the Federal Court of Canada’s ruling that “product of Israel” labels on West Bank settlement wines are “false, misleading and deceptive.”
They also call on the Trudeau Government to review and remove the provisions in the Canada Israel Free Trade Agreement which permit the admission of goods and services from Israel’s illegal West Bank settlements.
