Elimination of Nuclear Weapons

2022 is a critical year for Canada and the world, facing the existential threat of nuclear weapons. Three key international meetings were planned and have been postponed: the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference, the Nato Summit, and a meeting of the Signatories to the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) and Pax Christi is directly involved in advocating for such leadership.

No to NATO

Members of Pax Christi met at a rally at the U.S. Consulate July 9th for a public forum to oppose the NATO Summit in Vilnius and later picketed at the Nato Association of Canada offices.

Excerpt from Greg Gillis, Pax Christi member: Pope Francis has talked about building a culture of peace…. The time has never been more urgent as we spiral closer and closer to an ever dangerous escalation of the Ukraine war to possible nuclear war. We must do this because every life is precious whether it be Ukrainian, Russian, Jewish, Palestinian, African etc. all the peoples of the earth, their lives matter and are equal to our own. Thank you and Peace to All!”

Militarism and Carbon Emissions

Pax Christi Toronto is greatly concerned about all sources which increase the amount of carbon emission in the atmosphere. Very grave sources of carbon emissions are the Canadian Department of National Defense and all military activity. However, military pollution is not considered in deliberations to decrease Greenhouse Gases despite the Canadian government’s statement that everything will be looked at through the lens of Climate.
