Review of the Year (2003) in Foreign Countries: The Americas

By Harold M. Waller

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2003

Canada experienced economic growth, modest inflation, and a small increase in currency value against the U.S. dollar in 2002. Prime Minister Jean Chrétien's decision to retire in February 2004 saw the rise of Paul Martin as his successor in the Liberal Party. In November, Senator Jerry Grafstein introduced a resolution condemning antisemitism in Europe and Canada. Protestors demanded in April that the Montreal government end its support for Israel because of Israel's human rights violations. New leadership in the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party threatened the enfranchisement of observant Jews in Ontario.
