Church Leader’s Letter – 15 March 2004
The CCC rejects ‘expensive futility of ballistic missile defence’. The member churches of the Canadian Council of Churches have written to Prime Minister Paul Martin urging him to “guide Canada toward an intensified commitment to nuclear disarmament as the most practical means of working for the safety and protection of Canadians.” They add, “Strategic ballistic missile defence systems, we believe, can never satisfy the deep human yearning for immunity from nuclear terror.”
