Garnett Genuis, Conservative M.P for Sherwood Park—Fort Saskatchewan spoke in support of the walk for justice campaign which has Tamils walking from Toronto and Montreal to parliament hill in order to raise awareness on the plight of enforce disappearances in Sri Lanka.



“Enforced disappearances, kidnappings it’s an important human rights issue that impacts many countries and many communities around the world. Sri Lanka has some of the highest numbers anywhere for forced disappearances some estimates are that approaching 100,000 people, as well as their families have been impacted by enforced disappearance in recent years and this is a key issue that many people in Canada from the Sri Lankan diaspora from the Tamil community in particular have been highlighted a calling for politicians like myself to act  and to speak out and to take appropriate measures in response to push the Sri Lankan government to address the issue of enforced disappearances and to address issues around human rights more broadly.



Right now we have a number of people walking from Toronto to Ottawa and from Quebec to Ottawa to raise awareness about this issue and also to present petitions to the government calling for awareness and action in response to enforced disappearances. On behalf of our conservative caucus and conservative leader Erin O’Toole,  I want to salute the efforts of those working to bring attention to this important human rights issue.

I just say that in Canada because of our geographic breath we have a long and important history of people walking long distances or running long distances to either fundraise or raise awareness about important causes so these great Canadians who are walking from Toronto to Ottawa from going back to a lot of work are participating in a long running an important practice in Canada of was physically sacrificing yourself going to great efforts walking long distances within our our vast geography to bring attention to very important issues in this case the issue of the human rights abuses associated with it forced disappearances taking place in Sri Lanka. 



Our Conservative Party has been calling for stronger action around human rights in Sri Lanka and around the world a greater willingness to use magnit sky sanctions target those involved in gross violations of fundamental human rights following the leadership of Stephen Harper when he boycotted the Colombo summit in 2013 again I want to salute and congratulate the work of those who are walking to walk away and I hope the government will have a response to that petition that you present.”
