Thank you, Mr. Chair. You're a much better chair than they used to have in this committee—
Voices: Oh, oh!
Hon. David Kilgour: —a long time ago.
Edward McMillan-Scott, vice-president of the European Parliament, is mentioned in the brief. You can look at that. Two minutes is going to go pretty quickly.
Now, as for China, the Government of China now accepts that the sourcing of organs from prisoners is improper. Deputy Health Minister Huang stated in 2009 that executed prisoners are “definitely not a proper source for organ transplants”.
There is quite a lot more in the brief about China, but please give me one minute.
I'll go to corporate social responsibility. I hope there are some helpful comments there.
With respect to recommendations, for organs trafficked in China, Matas and I would encourage you as MPs to consider our recommendations that urge the party-state in China to cease the persecution and repression of Falun Gong, to cease organ pillaging from all prisoners, and to remove its military from the organ transplant business. There are a couple of other recommendations.
In conclusion, we would hope that the Senate and the House would also enact measures to combat international organ transplant abuses.
Many of us in and beyond China might now have a greater impact on the future of this grave matter, not only because it's necessary for tens of millions of Chinese Falun Gong practitioners and their families who have been torn apart by this terrible process but also because it's good for China and the international community as a whole. All of us want a China that enjoys the rule of law, dignity for all, and democratic governance.
Thank you very much.
