Letter to IRCC Minister Mendicino 給移民部長的信

On behalf of the Toronto Association for Democracy in China (TADC), we would like to commend you on the new immigration measures supporting Hong Kong residents and Canadians in Hong Kong.

The Canadian announcement has served as a welcoming news and morale booster for the Hong Kong activists and supporters here in Canada. (more…)

Dissent, freedom of expression and the relative high level of autonomy enjoyed by its people, are being eroded in an unprecedented pace and scope. We applaud the leadership and our government’s immediate action in canceling the extradition treaty agreement between Canada and Hong Kong.  (more…)

Canada, UK, USA, EU, Germany, Australia and many countries have officially expressed their opposition to the bill proposed in Hong Kong on extradition arrangement with China. Some countries went so far as to request Hong Kong government to withdraw the bill. 67 international organizations, TADC as one of them, has issued a joint statement to Ms Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of Hong Kong, to express our deep concerns on the bill due to China’s poor records on human rights and on rule of law. The Global Rally Against Extradition to China on Sunday June 9th will be held in 27 cities of 10 countries in addition to Hong Kong (as of this upload), including Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver in Canada. For information on the rally in each city, please refer to the listing in this document and Facebook page Global Solidarity with Hong Kong.
