Visit COAT's website
Inspired by popular revolutions and protests throughout the Middle East and North
Africa, COAT has produced dozens of data tables exposing Canadian military exports
to the region.  For decades, Canadian governments -- Conservative & Liberal alike --
have preached peace and human rights while facilitating a steady flow of arms,
ammunition, tear gas, battle vehicles, and other military and police products, to
repressive, undemocratic regimes.  Canada is thus complicit in aiding & abetting
various U.S.-backed regimes that retain power through brute force.
