Ecumenical Patriarchate and Religious Minorities in Turkey

To Prime Minister Stephen Harper

As G8&G20 Summit host, I call
upon you to advance the existing international consensus urging Turkey
to honour its legal obligation in support of the Ecumenical
Patriarchate. Despite appeals from the US, EU and UN, Turkey continues
to treat the Patriarchate unjustly, this includes:

  • Its
    non‐legal status and Turkey’s non-recognition of the “Ecumenical” title
  • Restrictions on the election of the Ecumenical
    Patriarch and Church hierarchs
  • The continued and illegal closure of the
    Theological School of Halki
  • The
    confiscation and loss of thousands of properties, including church
    buildings

I ask that you show
international leadership consistent with Canada’s history of supporting
democratic norms and personally speak with Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan
to ensure Turkey treats religious minorities correctly.
