I would be speaking generally in favour of this motion. I don't disagree with it. I think that the spirit of it is absolutely correct. I think this is one issue where there is very little daylight among our parties. We are all concerned about Tibet and human rights. When you look over the last 20 years, over various governments, we've been fairly consistent regardless of what party has been in power and where we're at.
I do agree, however, with Mr. Harris. I'm worried that it feels a little premature. We've just started, really, a little bit more on human rights. We were going to do a fairly in-depth set of discussions around various human rights issues. I would feel, personally, a little bit more comfortable if we had a little more witness testimony and then sorted out our plan about how we're going to address these issues publicly in the House and make decisions.
Again, I'm not against it, but it seems to me that it doesn't give us time to really look at the whole picture and whether or not it is timely. It's always timely to discuss human rights in Tibet, but is this the best time for a motion to come from this committee?
