Peace is possible with Canada’s help

Peacekeeping should be restored in Canada

Re: In pursuit of lasting peace (News, Sept. 21)

Thank you for your interview with Saul Arbess about the possibility of lasting peace. I long for the Canada that used to be – a Canada that looked after its own in a humane way.

I long for the Canada that was a peacekeeping nation.

I absolutely support the creation of a department of peace in Canada. We are all too ready to jump into aggressive action. I am grateful that the Royal Bank of Canada released a report that says peace is practical.

I am also gratified that Greater Victoria MPs are united against the feds’ anti-terrorism measures.
