Yes, I want to briefly say that when we think about the situation that has just been described to us, we see that Canada intersects in this reality in the Philippines in at least two ways: through our embassy, which is not doing enough to protect people, even people who come to the embassy to seek help, and through our corporations. In particular, our mining companies are making use of the militarization of the Philippines, the red-tagging, the impunity and the criminalization of dissent. When people oppose a mine because it's impacting their lives and livelihoods, they are being red-tagged, and their lives are threatened by extrajudicial killing.
We have to look again at how to hold our corporations to account for the activities that they are involved in overseas, particularly in places like the Philippines with the human rights situation as it is there now. We have to hold them to account in Canada, and our embassy has to be more active in protecting the human rights of people who come to seek support and help.
