4. MPP Randy Hillier: The Values That Falun Dafa Is Based on Are the Values of Which We Ought All to Appreciate and Adopt
To the members of the Falun Dafa Association of Canada,
I would like to thank you for the invitation to participate in the 22nd anniversary celebration of the introduction of Falun Dafa. Although I have enjoyed attending previous celebrations, I am unable to attend this year’s due to previous commitments. That said, I have no doubt that this year’s celebration at Nathan Phillips Square will be another wonderful display of Falun Dafa.
In the twenty two years since Mr. Li Hongzhi introduced Falun Dafa to the public, individuals the world over have become great neighbors and wonderful friends of practitioners of Falun Dafa. The values that your movement is based on are the values of which we ought all to appreciate and adopt.
Unfortunately, not all practitioners of Falun Dafa enjoy the freedom to practice their beliefs. Outside of Canada, many are not able to publicly pronounce their adherence to Falun Dafa’s tenants, to be truthful, compassionate and forbearing. We wish that all practitioners of Falun Dafa will soon live in a tolerant, prosperous and fair society holding the fundamental values of freedom, justice and democracy.
Though I am unable to join you at this time, I would like to share my support of your struggle for life, liberty and property. Hopefully one day soon, all practitioners of Falun Dafa will find justice.
Randy Hillier, MPP Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington
5. MPP Rosario Marchese: Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance Are Important to the Societies
Falun Dafa Association of Canada
17 April 2014
I take great pleasure in sending my greetings and congratulations on the 22nd anniversary of the introduction of Falun Dafa to the public and wish you all much enjoyment during this month of celebrations by its practitioners and supporters throughout the world.
Those who preserve in following the declared universal principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance are important to the societies in which they live by contributing the much needed tolerance that our complex societies require as they strive to survive under the myriad conflicting demands that affect our human life and natural environment. It is essential that time be taken to care for the body and spirit through exercise, relaxation and meditation as these are particularly important given today’s modern lifestyle and schedules.
Congratulations to Falun Dafa on persisting in your beliefs and practices of respect and harmony among all. I am certain that you will continue to help promote a healthy and altruistic Ontario.
Best wishes for your celebration!
Rosario Marchese MPP Trinity-Spadina
