Canada was a party to the 2004 coup in Haiti against the democratically elected government of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Many of us are not aware of this assault on the self-determination of the Haitian people.

“On Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, 2003, Jean Chrétien's Liberal government organized the 'Ottawa Initiative on Haiti' to discuss that country's future. No Haitian officials were invited to this assembly where high-level U.S., Canadian and French officials decided that Haiti's elected president ‘must go,’ the dreaded army should be recreated and that the country would be put under a Kosovo-like UN trusteeship.”

— Yves Engler, writer, journalist and international solidarity activist.
