Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The Quebec and Canadian people have numerous and significant economic, historical and cultural ties with the Cuban people;
  • The blockade of Cuba has lasted for 60 years and Canada is opposed to it;
  • The international community has repeatedly shown its support for the Cuban people, particularly through votes at the United Nations General Assembly;
  • The embargo has led to more severe shortages that affect the daily lives of Cuban residents; and
  • American economic sanctions and the economic blockade against Cuba violate international law, as well as the right to self-determination and the human rights of the Cuban people.
We, the undersigned residents of Quebec and Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to
1. Ask United States representatives, through the Minister of Foreign Affairs, to lift the blockade against Cuba as well as to remove Cuba from the list of state sponsors of terrorism;
2. Reaffirm the importance of the Cuban people’s human rights, which must be respected, and denounce the blockade against Cuba as one of the key barriers to the Cuban people’s full enjoyment of their human rights;
3. Act immediately to preserve the sovereignty of Quebec and Canada, ensuring that Quebec and Canadian corporations and other entities, particularly governmental ones, do not participate in the American economic sanctions against Cuba; and
4. Ensure that Quebec and Canadian relations with Cuba continue to be based on equality and respect for sovereignty, independence and the right to self-determination.
