Doing the complete apartheid tour!

Ontario Minister of Colleges and Universities Jill Dunlop visited Israel because its a “powerhouse when it comes to innovation”. Along with her visits to tech companies and universities, she had a “lovely chat” with Irwin Cotler and claims to have tasted “authentic Israeli falafel”. Israeli officials noted there should be “concrete steps…to strengthen our tech…collaboration”, further enhancing the Ontario-Israel Memorandum of Understanding MOU launched back in 2005.

Also included was an obligatory visit to AWZ Ventures (based in Toronto and Tel Aviv), which has Stephen Harper as a partner and an advisory board full of former spies. AWZ brags on its website of its “unique partnership” with the Israeli Defense Ministry and manages over $300 million investing in “multi-purpose, defensive technologies with the greatest commercial potential”.
