An Issue of the ‘Nanjing Massacre Commemorative Day’ in Canada

投稿日:2017年11月4日 更新日:

The Bill named, the ‘Nanjing Massacre Commemorative Day’ in Ontario State, Canada has been one of my deepest concerns, and frequently, I have been warning the Japanese Government of its danger. In order to stop the Bill, I visited Toronto in July.
The SANKEI SHINBUN dated today has highlighted this issue, referring to my name. Chinese groups in Canada are now expanding the horrifying movement to designate the so-called ‘Nanjing Incident’ as the ‘Nanjing Massacre Commemorative Day’ under the Ontario State Law. In October, a motion, instead of the Bill, was resolved in the Legislature of Ontario State. However, it must be the expression of their intention to continue the movement persistently until the resolution of the Bill, namely, the designation of the ‘Nanjing Massacre Commemorative Day.’ This movement has extended to Manitoba Province, next to Ontario State. From the standpoint of Japan, we should require the Legislature of Ontario State to withdraw the resolution of the motion, and successively, we should stop the movement to pass the Bill in the Legislature of Ontario State which will result in the expansion of the anti-Japan activities.
As the proverb says, this case will prove all the rest. Although I have repeatedly said that the initial stage of this issue is most important, it has become a big international issue. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is yet to recognize the seriousness of the issue, and thus, the role of the Diet members becomes large.
