The full motion states Canada and Israel’s “long history of friendship as well as economic and diplomatic relations.”

The motion says the BDS movement “promotes the demonization and delegitimization of the State of Israel.”

“Canada and Israel share a long history of friendship as well as economic and diplomatic relations, the House reject the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which promotes the demonization and delegitimization of the State of Israel, and call upon the government to condemn any and all attempts by Canadian organizations, groups or individuals to promote the BDS movement, both here at home and abroad.”

In recent years, BDS has reared its ugly head in Canada, where several universities have voted in favor of the anti-Israel movement.

In 2014, the student union at Toronto’s York University voted to join the BDS movement. It was preceded by Windsor University in Ontario.

Ryerson University that year also voted to join the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement against Israel, and last year, the student union at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, also voted in support of BDS.

However, last month students at the University of Waterloo in Ontario voted against their school severing its ties with five educational institutions in Israel.
