    WE, THE UNDERSIGNED CITIZENS OF CANADA, draw the attention of the House to the following:
    WHEREAS, the Sikh community in Canada has been a vibrant part of the Canadian cultural mosaic since 1897;
    WHEREAS, the Sikh communityn Canada is amongst one of the largest religious groups within the Indo-Canadian community;
    WHEREAS, members of the Canadian Sikh Community have become an integral part of Canada’s culture as they continue to contribute significantly to the national economy;
    AND WHEREAS, there was an organized campaign of Genocide against the members of the Sikh Community in India in November of 1984, resulting in the deaths of thousands of innocent Persons, we call on the Government of Canada to:
    1 Recognize that an organized campaign of violence, rapes and killings took place in India in November of 1984, against the Sikh Community, resulting in the deaths of thousands.
    2 Call upon the government of India to take all reasonable measures to bring all persons responsible for this organized campaign of violence to justice. This includes criminal prosecutions against the responsible persons following due process of law.
    3 Formally recognize that this organized killing spree resulting in the deaths of thousands is “Genocide” as per the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
