Taiwan is an independent and democratic country.  We believe it it's Canada's duty to establish formal diplomatic relations with Taiwan .

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the massacre on Tiananmen Square (Tiananmen Square) in Beijing. Thousands of peacefully demonstrating people were killed, many simply crushed by tanks. Their remains were flushed into the sewers. The responsible regime, the Government of the People's Republic of China (Chinese Communist Party), is a globally recognized diplomat and a member of the United Nations.

Nevertheless, the leadership of this vast country disregards human rights, forces entire ethnic groups into "re-education camps", builds a unique surveillance and censorship machine, brutally defies the concerns of other states in territorial conflicts in Southeast Asia, and violates international law. All this does not prevent the Canadian Government from diplomatically recognizing this country and trading with it.

 


However, since 1949, there is a second China, the Republic of China or Taiwan. It emerged as a result of the civil war between Mao Zedong and Chiang Kai-Sek. Both states were members of the UN until 1972, when the People's Republic of China prevailed on the exclusion of Taiwan from the UN. There is no international legal basis for this. The Cairo Declaration of 1943, in which the Allies promised China the return of Taiwan after the war, was not binding under international law. For decades, the UN has recognized the existence of two German states, and to this day the two Korean states are treated equally. Taiwan started a democratic development in 1987. Today, unlike the People's Republic of China, the Republic of China is a democratic country by our standards, in which the people themselves determine. Nevertheless, The government of Canada does not recognize this country (Taiwan) . This is incomprehensible to us given the massive violations of international and human rights by the PRC described above.

We therefore demand diplomatic recognition of Taiwan .
