On 10 June 2008, Libby Davies, read to the Canadian House of Commons, a citizens’ petition calling upon Canada to launch an enquiry into the September 11 attacks.

An MP from Vancouver, Mrs Davies, the first gay Canadian MP to have come out, is known for her commitment against the war in Iraq. She chairs a parliamentary group of 30 MPs belonging to the Neo-Democrat Party (a member of the International Socialist).

Here is the text of the petition:

«We, the undersigned citizens of Canada want to draw the attention of the Chamber to the following:

that, witnesses and scientific evidence show that the report of the Commission of Official Inquiry on the Events of 11 September 2001 is a fraudulent document and that the authors, knowingly or unknowingly are guilty of hiding the real events of 11 September 2001. The evidence collected shows clearly that Towers 1, 2 and 7 of the World Trade Centre were demolished by explosives and that the official theory supporting the thesis that the three towers tumbled following the impact of the planes and the heat from the fires that followed is irrefutably false

We firmly believe that elements of the US government have been complicit in the murder of thousands of innocent people on 11 September 2001. This event led to Canada engaging in the so-called «war on terror» and changing our national and international policy for the worse. 11 September 2001 is going to continue to have harmful consequences for everyone if we refuse to examine the facts carefully and objectively.

For this reason, the signatories to this petition ask Parliament :
(1) To immediately launch its own enquiry into the events of 11 September 2001 on behalf of the 24 Canadian citizens that were killed on 11 September 2001 at New York City.
(2) To act legally, in light of its own inquiry, by helping to prosecute those really to blame before international courts.

For truth and responsibility »

Let us recall that the Venezuelan Parliament adopted a motion requesting explanations from President Bush on the incoherence of its version of the September 11 attack, and that the Japanese Senate has refused to send new troops to Afghanistan until the allegations of the Bush Administration on this country’s responsibility in the 11 September attacks were substantiated.
