Canadian-based Coalition Will Send Citizen Inspectors to Examine U.S. Weapons of Mass Destruction This Winter

Interview with David Langille, director public affairs at the Centre for Social Justice in Toronto, Between The Lines' Scott Harris

Later this winter, thousands of volunteer weapons inspectors will enter the U.S from Canada in an effort to examine the U.S. military's arsenal of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. Citing guidelines put forth by the Bush administration itself, the coalition of groups which includes Greenpeace Canada, the Toronto Committee Against War and Sanctions on Iraq, and Global Exchange, hope to expose the double standards and hypocrisy that they say is manifest in White House policies toward Iraq and international law.

The "Rooting Out Evil" coalition, as they call themselves, declared that "the current U.S. administration poses a great threat to global security" and demanded that the Bush administration grant their inspectors immediate and unfettered access to any site in the country including all presidential compounds. The group will field their inspection team on Feb. 22 and 23, 2003.

Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with David Langille, director of public affairs at the Centre for Social Justice in Toronto, Canada and a coordinator of the Rooting Out Evil Coalition, who explains the goals of the "inspection" campaign and assesses Canadian public opinion toward the U.S. drive for war with Iraq.
