Petition: This is Canada’s Fight.

When our friends and allies are attacked, when our values are threatened, when human rights are trampled, and human dignity is crushed, it is our fight.Rona Ambrose, February 7th, 2016

On October 22nd, 2014, an ISIS-inspired terrorist struck the heart of our nation’s capital, killing an unarmed ceremonial guard. Two days before, a similar attack occurred against two Canadian Armed Forces soldiers in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec.

One Canadian was fortunate to only escape with injuries in the ISIS attack in Paris that resulted in the deaths of 130 people.

In January, a Canadian was a victim in a brutal attack by ISIS in Jakarta, and six more Canadians were killed in another terrorist attack in Burkina Faso.

This is not just another conflict. ISIS poses a threat to Canadians and our allies – directly, and brutally.

Our CF-18’s are an essential part of the international strategy to contain, degrade and defeat ISIS.

It isn’t easy sending our men and women in uniform into combat – and it shouldn't be. When Canada is attacked at home, and Canadians are attacked abroad, it is Canada’s fight. Canada must work continue to work with our allies – including leaving our CF-18’s in the joint bombing missions against ISIS.

Add your name if you want Canada to remain in the fight against ISIS:
