Madam Speaker, I want to thank the member for Scarborough North for his advocacy on this matter.
Canada is part of the core group on this resolution and worked alongside members of the council for the passage of resolution 46/1 in Geneva this week. This resolution mandates the High Commissioner for Human Rights to collect, consolidate, analyze and preserve information and evidence. This is an important step towards accountability in Sri Lanka.
Canada has and always will stand up for human rights in Sri Lanka and around the world.
