CCC on Syria to Minister Baird: There is no military solution to conflict

The General Secretary of The Canadian Council of Churches, the Rev. Dr. Karen Hamilton, has written to Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird in response to the crisis in Syria. The letter, sent on behalf of the CCC’s 25 member denominations, together representing 85 per cent of Christians in Canada, reiterates the churches’ conviction that there is no military solution to the conflict in Syria. The letter calls on Canada to provide vigorous support for compromise through diplomatic and political processes to bring a just and lasting peace to Syria and to respond generously to the humanitarian and refugee challenge.
