Pizza shop pop­u­lar with peace group

The Daily Courier - - KELOWNA -

A pizza shop owner who dis­avowed his sup­port for the fed­eral Lib­er­als over the Saudi Ara­bia arms deal is mak­ing new friends with mem­bers of the Kelowna Peace Group.

The group met last Satur­day at Fresh­slice Pizza on Bernard Av­enue to show its sup­port for CEO Ray Rus­sell.

Ac­cord­ing to the group, Rus­sell, a self-de­scribed “big sup­porter” of the fed­eral Lib­eral party, an­nounced he can no longer sup­port any party that backs Canada’s $15-bil­lion arms sale to Saudi Ara­bia.

Canada is sell­ing mil­i­tary ve­hi­cles to the coun­try. Calls to can­cel the deal have in­creased since jour­nal­ist Ja­mal Khashoggi was killed last month in­side the Saudi con­sulate in Is­tan­bul.
