QUESTION PERIOD: NORTH KOREA-DETENTION OF REVEREND HYEON SOO LIM

 

Hon. Yonah Martin (Deputy Leader of the Opposition): Minister Dion, yesterday on the Hill was the Day of Action for the Release of Reverend Hyeon Soo Lim, a Canadian pastor and humanitarian who has been detained in North Korea for over a year. Hundreds of supporters travelled from the Toronto region in a show of solidarity, and hundreds of thousands of people have signed an online petition calling on the Trudeau government to bring Reverend Lim back to Canada safely and as soon as possible.

Reverend Lim’s life sentence is, in essence, a death sentence; and with each passing day, the family, the church, Canadians and people around the world fear for his life.

Minister Dion, would you please tell us what the Trudeau government is doing to save Reverend Lim from this unjust sentence and to bring him home safely to Canada, and that it has your priority attention at this time?
