“Red alert”

Israelis living in the town of Sderot were on the Hill to talk about being one the closest cities to the Gaza Strip. Over 1,000 rockers have been launched at them so far this year.

Liberal MP Irwin Cotler visited the city. He was shocked to hear that some kid’s first words were “red alert,” which is what they hear as the rockets come down.

Other MPs at the talk were Liberal MP Anita Neville (right).

Liberal MP Susan Kadis (right).

And Tory MP Dr. James Lunney, head of the Canada-Israel Interparliamentary Group.
