Issuing an official message for the occasion, Andrew Scheer has called the “persistent, non-violent struggle by the Tibetan people for justice and equality” a “testament to the fortitude and determination of Tibetans”.

Expressing solidarity with the Tibet groups in Canada on the uprising day, the opposition leader expressed common cause with the Tibet groups in “remembering and honouring all those who have died in the Tibetan struggle over the last 60 years.”  And he added, “Their uncompromising spirit serves as an inspiration to us all.”

And he said his Conservative Party stood “in solidarity with Tibet Groups in Canada and Tibetans around the world in the sincere struggle for peace and justice.”
