On August 24, 2023, CityNews Toronto published a review of the new film “Golda”, based on the true story of former Prime Minister, Golda Meir, as she navigated the State of Israel through the Yom Kippur War of 1973. Within the review of the film, journalist and film critic, James Mackin, stated incorrectly that the end of the Yom Kippur War was the beginning of both Egypt and Syria officially recognizing the State of Israel.
In truth, Syria, to this day, does not recognize the official statehood of Israel, and both countries are currently officially in a state of war.
After alerting CityNews Toronto of this error, they quickly amended the article to reflect the truth. We thank CityNews Toronto for their prompt corrective action.
