Kilgour puts China under spotlight - June 8, 2007 - Former MP and outspoken Christian David Kilgour gave a hard-hitting speech June 2 to the Rights Now Forum staged by the China Rights Network at the University of Toronto. He noted the difficulties arising from operating "a pluralist market economy within an essentially totalitarian state"; and assailed what he termed the resulting "discrimination against the 700-900 million persons living in rural China." The Communist Party, he maintained, "remains in effect police, prosecutor, judge and jury for any and all cases it deems important." The bulk of his speech focused on disturbing allegations that Falun Gong members "continue to be, in effect, murdered by medical personnel across China for their vital organs." Citing a report he co-authored, he said 33 key pieces of evidence for the alleged atrocities "are verifiable and in most cases are incontestable."
