r A8 The Ottawa Citizen, Sunday, January 10, 1993 C I T Y L I F E Military trade show an arms sale in disguise, peace groups charge BYJACKAUBRY- Owen stall writer Peacekeeping '93, a military trade show scheduled for the Ottawa Congress Centre in March, is a clever cover for another ARMX exhibition, a coalition of peace groups says. Richard Sanders, spokesman for the groups, said a series of demonstrations are planned if the coalition can't convince the Congress Centre to rip up its contract with the exhibitors. "It's all the same arms dealers who attended ARMX W in Ottawa. They are just presenting a new fa-, cade. It's an amis trade show by any other name," Sanders said Saturday. Al Geddry, spokesman for Baxter Publications Inc.,. which is organizing the show, said Peacekeeping '93 ' is a departure from the ARMX shows held at Lansdowne Park in 1987 and 1989. While confirming that arms dealers will be at the show March 16 and 17, no large equipment, such as tanks, will be shown. "I understand their concerns. They would like to see amis trade done away with, but we must be pragmatic. The Cold War has ended and we're trying to match the requirements of the market," .said Geddry. The groups are to meet with the Congress Centre's board of directors Monday night. The coalition .which includes the Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade, Canadian Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, Ploughshares Ottawa and several church groups will each be given five minutes to make a presentation. "They say it is for peacekeeping purposes but it is ludicrous to think that you can bring together major arms dealers and they will limit themselves to peacekeeping equip ment, said banders. In 1989, Ottawa Council passed a resolution banning any future arms trade exhibitions on city property. Organizers tried to move the show to Carp but two shows were eventually postponed. As a capital city, Ottawa is a pre ferred site for the by-invitation-only arms show because embassies provide customers. But Geddry said countries such as South Africa, Israel and Libya will not be invited. The show is also closed to the public.
