Canadian Jews lose their sanest, most progressive voice:
Effective July 1st, the Canadian Jewish Congress is discontinuing its activities. Canadian Jewish advocacy will be handled by the Canadian Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy (CIJA). In the near future, the CIJA website will be overhauled and expanded to reflect the enlarged mandate.
Note that Canada's largest Jewish advocacy group now has "Israel" in its name. A real pity that.
PS. Though sad, this news is not unexpected.
