“Israel has no greater friend in the world than Canada,” Baird said at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial on Monday.
Speaking at the 12th annual Herzliya Conference later that evening, Baird called the delegitimization and demonization of Israel the "new anti-Semitism."
MP Baird declares to Israelis at the annual IDC Policy Conference in Herzliya:
"I can assure you, Canada will stand with you . . . Canada will stand beside you- shoulder to shoulder."
