To celebrate the 11th anniversary of Falun Dafa's Introduction, World Falun Dafa Day and Canada Falun Dafa Festival, Montreal Falun Dafa practitioners organized rich activities at Zhongshan Part in Chinatown from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on May 10, 2003.
The activities started with over 30 practitioners practicing the exercises together. Some of them were wearing beautiful Tang Dynasty Costumes. Next, several practitioners gave speeches to introduce the spreading of Falun Dafa over the past 11 years and exposed the crimes of China's brutal persecution of Falun Gong. They praised many countries and governments that accepted Falun Dafa and proclaimed Dafa. In the end, they called on more people to learn about Falun Gong and cherish "Truthfulness Compassion Tolerance" and select a good future for themselves. The practitioners performed "Tang Dynasty Costume Show," "Come Just for You," and "Heavenly Lady Dance," which won much applause.
City Council member Henri-Francois Gautrin sent a congratulatory letter to practitioners and Master. In the letter, he said, in face of challengers, Falun Dafa practitioners showed their great compassion and endurance.
