â€œThis report details a litany of human rights violations endured by the Sri Lankan people.
â€œSadly, the Sri Lankan government continues to fail victims and survivors alike. The measures it has taken to date simply do not go far enough, as this report clearly lays out.
â€œThe Prime Minister and I take every opportunity to raise Canadaâ€™s concerns with respect to the need for progress on reconciliation, accountability and respect for human rights in Sri Lanka.
â€œCanada calls on the Sri Lankan government to finally put the people of that country first.
â€œCanada also notes the Secretary Generalâ€™s comments and will work with the international community to ensure mistakes made in Sri Lanka are not repeated.â€
