Arab Canadians urge Lebanon action
Arab-Canadians are urging their government to condemn civilian casualties in the Middle East and take a more proactive role in calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities.

Stephen Harper, Canadas Conservative prime minister, has been criticised both in parliament and among some media commentators for defending Israeli action in Lebanon, labelling it a "measured response".

On August 6, thousands demonstrated peacefully in Montreal, a city traditionally home to a large Arab and particularly Lebanese community.

Carrying Lebanese and Canadian flags, they criticised the Conservatives foreign policy position on the Lebanon crisis.
