Too bad if the Chinese commies are angry. Trade is important, but so are human rights! Trade-hungry Tories risk Chinese wrath by lauding exiled Dalai Lama in Ottawa By Mike Blanchfield, The Canadian Press | The Canadian Press – 13 hours ago RELATED CONTENT The Dalai Lama speaks at the 6th World Parliamentarians' Convention on Tibet in Ottawa, … OTTAWA - The Harper government firmly aligned itself Friday with one of China's sworn enemies — the Dalai Lama, who thanked the world for its support of Tibetan Buddhists under siege. His voice resonating through Ottawa's historic, high-ceilinged conference centre that was once the capital's main train station, the charismatic, orange-robed Tibetan holy leader said his "ancient nation, with ancient culture, is in danger of dying." "As fellow human brothers, sisters really showing us your solidarity, and you really want to do something, I very much appreciate," the Dalai Lama said, leaning over his dais to address the Sixth World Parliamentarians' Convention on Tibet.
