「加拿大香港之友」的成員很多都是在香港長大、移民到加拿大多年的人。我們對香港和加拿大都有親身的經驗和認識,讓我們能深入地觀察兩地很多共通及相關之處,令我們得以從獨特的角度分析和思考兩地面對的挑戰,提出有建設性的看法,有助於尋求解決之道。

我們選擇成為加拿大人,就有責任和義務對本國作出貢獻。我們盼望盡力令我們所居住的城市更加美好,人人都可以安居樂業。

同時,我們在香港長大,受過香港的文化、價值和教育的栽培和薰陶,所以我們亦有責任和義務幫助香港成為更美好、更公義、人人都可以安居樂業的地方。

若香港政府提出的逃犯條例修訂被通過,全世界所有人,不論國籍及公民身份,一旦踏足香港領域,就算只是過境性質,都會處於沾滿血腥的中共極權魔爪掌控之下。

現時有三十萬加拿大公民在香港生活同工作,亦會有更多的加拿大人因公事、旅遊或個人原因而需要去香港,或途經香港。如果這些加拿大人從香港被引渡到中國大陸,他們可能會面對怎樣的前景呢?

他們會否如我們兩位加拿大人質 Michael Kovrig 及 Michael Spavor 或 709 維權律師們般被虐待?會否如銅鑼灣書店幾位被綁架的員工一樣被逼在電視上認罪?又或者如幾百萬的新疆維吾爾族人一樣消失在所謂再教育營的大黑洞裏面?他們會否如加拿大人 Robert Schellenberg 般在一天的審訊裏面就被裁定死刑?會否與許多中共高官及商界精英般被跳樓、被自殺?或如眾多法輪功學員一樣被活摘器官,為渺無人性的貪官污吏和黨國機器進帳財富?

香港本來是一個有法治、尊重人權和公民自由的國際大都會,現在這個曾經自由燦爛的城市正在被醜惡的中共極權粉碎,但是香港人並沒有屈服,他們仍然勇敢堅持地抗拒強權,寸土必爭。

香港是世界的水晶球,若果我們任由中共極權滲透加拿大的民主政制,以紅資黑金改變我們尊重人權自由的核心價值,香港的命運就會變成我們的命運。

香港是我們出生成長的故鄉,加拿大是我們選擇安身和追尋理想的國家,香港加拿大人既對中共極權的統戰、橫蠻和殘酷有深切了解,對悍衛兩地的自由、法治和人權實是責無旁貸。我們應督促加拿大政府向北京發出強烈鮮明的信息,要中共遵守中英聯合聲明及對香港人的承諾,給予香港人真普選及高度自治。同時,我們的政府必須保護所有加拿大公民,與香港人站在一起,清晰地向香港政府提出的逃犯條例修定大聲說不!

Why Canadians should care about the amendment to HK’s Extradition Laws

The proposed amendment to HK’s extradition laws would put everyone, regardless of nationality and citizenship, who happens to be on Hong Kong soil at risk from the blood stained sharp claws of the Chinese dictatorial regime. 

Currently, 300,000 Canadians are working & living in Hong Kong. Many more Canadians will be visiting or passing through Hong Kong for business, professional or personal reasons. What might happen to these Canadians if they are being extradited to Mainland China from Hong Kong?

Would they be abused and tortured like our two Canadians, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, and the Chinese human rights lawyers? Would they be paraded on TV confessing their crimes like the Hong Kong booksellers? Would they be disappeared into the dark hole of so called re-education camps like the millions of Uyghurs? Would they be sentenced to death in a one day trial like Robert Schellenberg? Would they be suicided like many Chinese political or business elites? Or, would their organs be harvested like the Fa Lun Gong practitioners?

Hong Kong used to be a free society with rule of law and the respect of human rights and civil liberties. This once free and proud city is dying, crushed by the ugly force of the dictatorial CCP. But Hongkongers have not given in. They are determined to hold their ground, every single inch. 

Hong Kong is the world’s crystal ball. Through Hong Kong, we can see our own future if we allow the CCP to infiltrate Canada and exert influence. Our Canadian government must send a strong message to Beijing that China must honour the Sino-British Joint Declaration and the promise of universal suffrage and a high degree of autonomy to Hongkongers. Our government must protect Canadians by standing behind Hongkongers to say NO to the proposed changes to Hong Kong’s extradition laws.
