  1. I have been following the concerns of the Tibetan People for over 50 years, and as a Canadian person, I am concerned as to why this important global issue is still unresolved. If the truth was the foundation for China’s conflicts with Tibet, would not all of these issues be put to rest? As China is a powerful nation, there must be a profound reason as to why the Tibet issue is not yet resolved. The world is waiting for China to take a much more honest, and a more functional stance, which will recognize Tibet as a free and sovereign State in our global community.
