Below is a letter Canada Palestine Association sent to the CEO and President of Canadian Tire regarding their carrying Israeli products, including those from illegal settlements. CPA is calling on supporters and friends to boycott all Canadian Tire outlets and to cancel their Canadian Tire credit cards. Please go to this link at the CJPME website and add your voice to telling Canadian Tire officials that we will not engage in “business as usual” with such unethical practices.

Mr. Wetmore, CEO and President:
Canada Palestine Association learned from Canadians for Justice in the Middle East that you are carrying Israeli products which make your corporation complicit in Israeli war crimes, ethnic cleansing and Apartheid.
We are part of the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement against Israel and will now call immediately for a general boycott of all Canadian Tire outlets, including asking people to cancel their Canadian Tire Credit Cards. Additionally, we will ask our supporters on the Voice of Palestine on a weekly basis to do the same.
This boycott will continue until you stop carrying all Israeli products.
Chairperson, Canada Palestine Association
Cohost, Voice of Palestine
