...remembers "this is Canada"...
CUPE's national president has rebuked the union's Ontario leader over his call for a boycott of Israeli academics.*
Jewish groups condemned the proposal and, yesterday, they were joined by Paul Moist, president of CUPE's national office. "I believe such a resolution is wrong and would violate the anti-discrimination standards set out in the CUPE Constitution."
"I will be using my influence in any debates on such a resolution to oppose its adoption." In an interview, he added: "We don't discriminate against people based on their nationality."
