The Green Party of Quebec calls for a public inquiry into arms manufacturing in Quebec

Today, we learn from the Journal de Montréal that Quebec allows a significant number of companies to manufacture bombs and military equipment on its territory.

Although some information remains secret, we already know that much of the ammunition is exported to Saudi Arabia and other countries where human rights are

Every year, Quebec and Canadian governments and corporations enrich themselves on the backs of thousands of civilians killed by munitions, armor and combat aircraft manufactured in Quebec (more specifically in Repentigny, Mirabelle, Saint-Lambert and Valleyfield).

Quebec cannot continue to be complicit in war crimes, through the manufacture of armaments and the export of this deadly equipment to countries that do not respect human rights. As citizens of Quebec, we all have a responsibility to fight for peace and respect for human rights here and around the world.

That's why I'm asking Quebec's Minister of International Relations, Nadine Girault, to open a public inquiry into the manufacture and use of weapons and military equipment made in Quebec.
