(Clearwisdom.net) On the afternoon of March 22, 2004, Mr. Xun Li and Ms. Gongyu Dai, representatives of Canada Falun Dafa Association delivered an appeal letter with 50,000 signatures to the Canadian Prime Minister. In the letter, Falun Gong practitioners call on the Canadian government to urge the Chinese government to end the persecution of Falun Gong and the spread of hate propaganda in Canada.
Canadians Have Been Supporting Falun Gong Practitioners' Efforts to End the Persecution
Mr. Li said, "The persecution in China has lasted for nearly 5 years. The 50,000 signatures show that ending the persecution of Falun Gong is what the Canadian people want. Earlier, we delivered about 150,000 signatures to the Prime Minister."
On the same day, Amnesty International and the United Nations Commission on Human Rights also delivered investigative reports on the Jiang regime's persecution of Falun Gong.
During the last few years, Canada has rescued more than ten Falun Gong practitioners, including Mr. Zhang Kunlun and Mr. Lin Shenli.
Mr. Li said, "Since the persecution started in 1999, the Canadian governments (Prime Minister, members of parliament, officials from federal, provincial and city governments), non-government organizations (Amnesty International, Canada's labor organizations, student associations etc.) and people from all walks of life called on China to stop persecuting Falun Gong and voiced their support for the Falun Gong practitioners being persecuted."
Investigative Report Reveals Chinese Diplomatic Officials' Acts of Instigating Hatred in Canada
Falun Gong practitioners in Canada also handed a 60-page-long investigative report from the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) entitled "Chinese Officials' Illegal Acts in Canada." Mr. Li said, "This report lists Chinese Diplomatic Officials' acts of instigating hatred in Canada. Many facts have shown that the instigation affects not only the Chinese community, but also all of Canadian society. The purpose of these Chinese officials is to instigate hatred and isolate Falun Gong practitioners in the community."

The National Post published a report on March 20 entitled, "Falun Gong Persecution Spreads to Canada."
Canadian Society Rejects Acts of Instigating Hatred
Mr. Li said that most of Canadian officials receiving hate propaganda materials have reject the acts of instigating hatred and throw those materials in the trash. Many officials condemn the Chinese embassy's and consulate's acts of instigating hatred in Canada, such as members of Parliament, Mr. Rob Anders and Mr. Gordon Earle, and Mayor Andy Wells of Saint John, New Brunswick.
Mr. Li said, "The Canadian Falun Dafa Association has received various hate materials from the Chinese Embassy and Consulate, which are forwarded to us by Canadian officials. The association is collecting more evidence and will take action. At the same time, we hope the Canadian Prime Minster will stop the Chinese Embassy and Consulate's acts of instigating hatred in Canada."
