蒙特利尔华人社区关于反对联邦保守党涉疆动议的联合声明

做为加拿大的合法社团以及加拿大魁北克省大蒙特利尔地区十几万华裔加拿大人社团的代表,我们一致反对加拿大联邦众议院2月22日通过的由在野的保守党提出的涉疆动议。我们认为该动议罔顾事实,有违加拿大自身的价值观。加拿大个别政客和政党,借用中国新疆议题进行政治炒作,意在捞取其自身的政治资本,这类自私狭隘的行径也有违加拿大自由民主的价值观和包容开放的人文传统。

涉疆动议本来是一个未能被事实证明的指责,不应在国会上作政治投票表决,如果加拿大保守党和个别政客对此议题有所关注,应寻求对这一事项的进一步了解,而不是利用一些未经证实的一面之词和充满争议的政治词汇,然后让加拿大联邦议员在不明真相的情况下进行投票。

加拿大国会众议院共有338名议员,对此议案投赞成票的为226票,2票弃权,其余的议员没有参加投票,所以不能称该议案“全票通过”。其次,该议案不具任何约束力,亦不能代表加拿大政府的立场。因此,我们也反对任何不负责任的媒体关于该议案获加拿大议会全票通过的错误和不实报道。

做为华裔加拿大人,我们对一些加拿大政客不断借各种中国议题来挑唆中加矛盾以获取其自身政治利益的做法感到忧虑重重,因为这种不负责的做法会造成不了解真相的其他族裔加拿大人对整个华裔甚至亚洲裔的负面看法,给一百七十多万华裔加拿大人的生活和工作带来极大的困扰。

众所周知,目前中加关系因种种原因面临着极大的挑战,而个别加拿大政客并没有朝着试图消除误解,缓和矛盾,改善中加关系的方向做建设性的努力,反而是罔顾事实,借中国新疆议题继续激化中加矛盾,我们对此也深感失望和担忧。

我们一致认为,做为加拿大民选代表的议事机构,加拿大议会应该将更多精

力着眼于加拿大本国的疫情、经济、民生、环境和各族裔生存状况等等国内事务,而不是利用和炒作个别外国议题,推卸其自身所应当负起的国内问题的责任,转嫁加拿大本国的矛盾,转移加拿大国内的问题。

最后,我们也反对加拿大在野的保守党党魁呼吁加拿大联邦政府推动国际奥委会撤回中国2022年冬奥主办权的荒唐做法。

对话沟通和彼此尊重符合加拿大的价值观,而保守党党魁试图用政治干预奥林匹克精神,干预有200多个会员的国际奥委会的议事程序,这种做法非常荒唐,也极度不负责任,会给加拿大的国际形象造成了很坏的负面印象。

JOINT STATEMENT

As Canada’s legitimate community organizations representing hundreds of thousands of Chinese Canadians in greater Montréal, Canada, we oppose Xinjiang-related motion passed by Canada’s House of Commons on February 22. This motion was put forward by the opposition Conservative Party of Canada, and it ignored the basic facts.

We believe that some Canadian politicians and political parties use China’s Xinjiang issues for their own political gain. Such selfish and narrow-minded behavior violates Canada’s free and democratic values, and ​​the cultural tradition of tolerance and openness.

The Xinjiang-related motion was an accusation that could not be proven by facts, and it should not be voted politically in Parliament. If the Conservative Party and other politicians are concerned with this issue, they should seek further understanding of this matter. It is irresponsible to use unproven, distorted, one-sided stories and controversial political assertions to push federal lawmakers to vote without knowing the truth.

There are 338 members in the House of Representatives in the Parliament. 226 votes were cast in favor of the bill, with 2 abstentions. The rest of the members did not participate in the vote, so the bill cannot be called “unanimously passed.” Secondly, the bill is not binding and does not represent the position of the Canadian government. Therefore, we also oppose any irresponsible media’s wrong and false reports about the bill being passed by the Canadian Parliament unanimously.

As Chinese Canadians, we are concerned about the conduct of some Canadian politicians who continue to use various Chinese issues to instigate conflicts between China and Canada in order to advance their own political interests. Such irresponsible conduct will cause negative views of the entire Chinese and even Asian communities by Canadians who do not understand the truth, and cause significant distress to the lives and work of more than 1.7 million Chinese Canadians.

As we all know, China-Canada relations are currently facing great challenges due to various reasons. Some Canadian politicians have not made constructive efforts to eliminate misunderstandings, alleviate contradictions, and improve China-Canada relations. Instead, they ignore facts and use China’s Xinjiang issue to continue intensifying the conflicts between China and Canada. We are deeply disappointed and concerned about this situation.

We believe that, as the deliberative body of the elected representatives of Canada, the Parliament should focus more on the domestic affairs of Canada’s epidemic, economy, people’s livelihood, environment, and the living conditions of all ethnic groups, rather than using issues in a foreign country to shirk its own responsibility to Canadians, and ignore Canada’s own internal affairs and conflicts.

Finally, we also oppose the calling upon the federal government by the opposition leader of the Conservative Party to push the International Olympic Committee to withdraw the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics in China.

Dialogue, communication and mutual respect are in line with Canadian values. The Conservative Party leaders try to politicize Olympics, disrespect the Olympic spirit, and interfere with the work of the International Olympic Committee that consists of more than 200 countries. Such conduct is absurd and irresponsible, and it will seriously damage Canada’s image on the international stage.

The Montreal Chinese communities are united to make this joint statement, to oppose the Xinjiang-related motion passed by the Parliament and any politically motivated, self-serving action that may damage Canada-China relation or cast a negative view on the Chinese communities in Canada.
