Canadian Immigration Minister Jason Kenney announced Thursday that his country will not be taking part in the Durban III conference next year.
Speaking at a press conference and quoted in AFP, Kenney said: “Our government has lost faith in the Durban process. We will not be part of this event, which commemorates an agenda that promotes racism rather than combats it.”
Kenney called the conference a “charade” and a “hatefest”, and said that it is essentially all about criticizing Israel. “The government of Canada will not lend Canada’s good name to the organized exercise in scapegoating (Israel) that is the Durban process.”
