Statement on U.S. air strikes in Syria

"The chemical weapons attack against civilians this week in Syria was shocking, and is added to a tally of horror that continues to stun the world. Assad must be held accountable for these crimes.


It is not clear what the impact of these missile strikes will be on the conflict. They are not part of a United Nations-sanctioned effort, and it is not clear if they form part of a larger plan to end this crisis.


New Democrats continue to believe that any successful response to this crisis in Syria must be multilateral and compatible with international law.


Now, more than ever, it is important that Canada work with our international partners to secure a lasting political solution to this crisis. Canada must also step up efforts on the humanitarian front, particularly in the face of drastic cuts to United Nations programs planned by the Trump administration.


What the people of Syria need, now more than ever, is the knowledge that the world community is united in making good on the promise to end this devastating war. We will continue to stand with them and support their aspirations for a peaceful, democratic future."
