 Canadian Chinese parliamentarians call on the federal government to set up the Nanjing massacre day.


Guan Huizhen issued a statement of about 5 minutes. She explained that she had issued a statement on the Nanjing massacre in November 30, 2017 in Congress and asked the federal government to set up a national day of commemoration, when Qiao Meilan, Minister of cultural heritage of Canada (MelanieJoly), in response to the government, said it would cooperate with Guan Huizhen to achieve this goal. But after that, he was told that it was the responsibility of the foreign minister. Guan Huizhen immediately contacted foreign minister Vreeland (ChrystiaFreeland). When Fran was not in Canada, his chief of staff followed up the matter. But later Guan Huizhen was told that the matter should still be handled by the Minister of cultural heritage. When Guan Huizhen contacted Joe Meilan again, he was told that it was too late to set December 13th as the anniversary of the Nanjing massacre. Guan Huizhen said in a statement that although the anniversary of the Nanjing massacre could not be set up on the occasion of the Nanjing massacre, she hoped that the Minister of cultural heritage would still be willing to assist the year December 13th as a national day of commemoration. She said that in November 2007, the federal Congress had unanimously approved the history of the comfort women through the motion proposed by Zou Zhihui, the then congressman, and asked the Canadian government to encourage the Japanese government to encourage the Japanese government to no longer publish any comments on the 1993 talk of the comfort women. Guan Huizhen also said that the government of British Columbia province (also translated by the province) had developed a set of teaching materials in 2001 with the conservation of the World War II havoc in Asia, making history not forgotten. The textbook was later adopted by other provinces. She also gave thanks to Ontario provincial governor Huang Sumei last year to promote the Nanjing Holocaust Memorial Day in the province, and recollected the commemoration of the Nanjing massacre held in Toronto and Vancouver last year. She told the speaker that the topic crossed the party politics, was about official recognition of atrocities, learning from history and mourning for victims. In addition to commemorating the victims and survivors, we must ensure that atrocities will not happen again. This article is from China News Network: Yu lie Dongs responsible editor: Li Hang _BJS4645
