MK's meet Canadian officials to bolster ties

Two MK's from the Knesset's Christian Allies Caucus on Sunday completed a week-long tour of Canada aimed at bolstering ties between the two countries and furthering Jewish-Christian relations. The parliamentarians, MK Robert Ilatov (Yisrael Beitenu) and MK Shai Hermash (Kadima) met with Canadian lawmakers as well as Christian and Jewish leaders in Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Winnipeg and Vancouver. The trip was sponsored by Canadian Christian ministry Watchmen for the Nations. "Canada has become one of Israel's closest allies," said Knesset Christian Allies Caucus director Josh Reinstein. "This delegation is here to strengthen those leaders and energize Christian grassroots support for Israel." The increasingly-influential cross-party parliamentary caucus aims to work with Christian supporters of Israel around the world.
