"We hope that all the Tibetans who have come to Canada have received a warm welcome and that they will find our country a pleasant one in which to live, one which will fulfill their individual aspirations to the fullest extent possible." 


- Pierre Elliot Trudeau, August 27, 1971, in a letter addressed to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
