UN Watch has announced that its 2019 Moral Courage Award will go to Stephen Harper, who served as the 22nd Prime Minister of Canada from 2006 to 2015.
The award will be presented at the 2019 UN Watch Annual Gala Dinner, on June 13, 2019, in Geneva, Switzerland. Click here to order tickets now.
At the United Nations and on the international scene, Prime Minister Harper stood out for his principled stand in the face of anti-Israeli bigotry.
Under his leadership, Canada was the only country in the world to consistently vote against anti-Israeli resolutions at the UN Human Rights Council; the first to pull out of the UN’s antisemitic Durban II Racism Conference; and the only nation to stand up to French President Jacques Chirac and the 61-nation Francophonie to prevent them from falsely blaming Israel for the 2006 Lebanon war.
One man stood up against the whole world to do what was right — time and time again.
Our 1-minute video on the award to Mr. Harper was posted on Facebook last week and already has drawn an astonishing 200,000 views.
