Campaign to Oppose CANSEC
Prepared by the Ottawa-based Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade (COAT), the above data table is part of a campaign to expose and oppose CANSEC, Canada's largest military industry trade show. In contravention of a 1989 motion banning all arms shows from municipal property, CANSEC 2009 is being hosted by the City of Ottawa at Lansdowne Park, May 27-28, 2009.  Click here to read more about our CAMPAIGN.
