Each activist group was given five minutes of time to give their statement in front of Hon'ble Minister. Mr. Kunga former MP of Tibetan Parliament in-exile has spoken to the group and Hon'ble Minister on behalf of the Tibetan activist group.

"Canada has been a leading voice for the protection of Human Rights, specially with the Canadian conservative leadership. The Canadian government has demonstrated its frame stand when prime minister Stephen declined the communist regime's invitation to the world Olympic games in Beijing , because of the China's Human Right records," said Mr. Kunga.

"We highly appreciate Canadian government's acknowledgement of His Holiness the Dalai Lama's initiatives promoting peace and harmony in the world. We also appreciate the government's vision; farsightedness for bringing those changes in the refugee reform, making the process more efficient, fast and decisive," he expressed.

"Regarding to Tibet issue, the Canadian Tibetan community look to the Canadian leadership to link with trade agreements with Chinese government to promote democracy and human rights in China. Over 50 Tibetans have set themselves on fire calling for international attention to the current situation in Tibet. These people include monk, nuns, nomads and students, yet their action and issue of Tibet have not generated the common ensuring attention of support."

"The Tibetans setting themselves on fire as political action, age of all those self-immolators is below forty six, born after 1966, that means, they were born and brought up under occupation of Tibet, that has lasted since 1959, when CCP promised as socialist paradise. These Tibetans were intended to be the primary beneficiaries within the Chinese political system and its education, economy and culture. Instead, they served a clear inclement of CCP's failed policies for Tibet,' he further added.
