My Statement in the House on the 30th Anniversary of the Dalai Lama’s Nobel Peace Prize


Madam Speaker, today is the 30th anniversary
of the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to His Holiness the Dalai Lama. As the MP for Parkdale-High Park, I take great
pride in representing the largest Tibetan diaspora in North America. Mais le Dalaï Lama n’est pas seulement un
leader pour le peuple tibétain, il est un leader pour nous tous. Grâce à ses efforts pour promouvoir la non-violence,
et sa défense de la liberté religieuse mondialement, ce chef bouddhiste est devenu un champion
pour la justice et droits de l’homme pour des millions partout du monde. I was humbled to meet with the Dalai Lama
in 2018 in India. What I will always recollect from that meeting
is his wisdom, his kindness, and most of all his dedication to the Tibetan people and his
promotion of the Middle Way approach. To our honourary Canadian citizen His Holiness
the Dalai Lama, I simply say thank you. Ka-drin-che Ghong-sa-chog for all you have
done not just for the Tibetan people, but for the global community, in promoting the
cause of peace and pluralism internationally. Thu ghee chay.
