This incident has shocked the public. Looking at the Australian practitioner's injured feet in the photos, many people covered their mouths with their hands and silently read the descriptions on the posters. Later, most people signed the petition condemning the Jiang group's atrocities. They expressed their support for using the legal system in Canada to sue the chief perpetrator, Jiang Zemin, the "610 Office", and those responsible in China's labor camps who participate in torturing Falun Gong practitioners.

A practitioner said at the rally, "In order to suppress Falun Gong, the Jiang group does not hesitate to apply state-terrorism and export it to other countries. This is not only a persecution of Falun Gong, but it is also a threat to the entire world. If the international community fails to pay attention to this terrorist act against Falun Gong practitioners who follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance, the evil will inevitably be emboldened and all people will live in terror.

A professional photographer who fled China with his parents about 40 years ago said, "I know the Party (CCP). They have always been lying. I know about their persecution of Falun Gong." He said that his father, who taught economics, was forced to flee China because he would not give up his independent thinking and did not want to lie in accordance with the Chinese authorities' requirement.

Upon learning that the Jiang group would even hired hit men to kill people overseas, and widely spread hate towards Falun Gong in China, a gentleman said after signing the petition, "They probably would try to do the same thing in Canada in the future as they have done in South Africa."

A practitioner said, "All the people were friendly. Chinese people were too. They quietly read the posters and then took the truth-clarifying materials." One lady said, "Upon learning that the Jiang group hired gunmen to kill Falun Gong practitioners, there are more Chinese people than ever taking the truth-clarifying materials."

A 40-year-old Chinese gentleman spent a lot of time reading through the truth-clarifying materials and returned the literature to Falun Gong practitioners, saying, "I read it through and would like to return this to you. I don't want to waste your materials."

Because a public activity was held near Chinatown, a large number of western and Chinese people passed by. During the 3-hour rally, thousands of people learned about this terrorist act and the facts about Falun Dafa.
