Canadas parliament on Thursday voted unanimously to strip Myanmars de-facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi of her honorary Canadian citizenship, given in 2007 for her efforts toward building democracy.
The motion introduced in the House of Commons comes after the parliament expressed its support for a motion adopted last week to recognize the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar as an act of genocide.
Our government supported this motion in response to her continued failure to speak out against the genocide of the Rohingya, a crime being committed by the military with which she shares power, said Adam Austen, press secretary to Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.
We will continue to support the Rohingya people through humanitarian assistance, targeted sanctions against Myanmars generals and by pushing for accountability for those responsible through an appropriate international body, he continued.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had told reporters on Wednesday that he was open to revoking Suu Kyis citizenship but said doing so would not solve the crisis in Myanmar.
Suu Kyi shared the Canadian honor with the likes of Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, the Aga Khan and Malala Yousafzai.

Wow, did Canada run this by Bono first? Walk....errr Genocide On.
The Burmese have been repelling islamic invasions for a thousand years.
Its not right to persecute people like that even if they are Muslims but I understand the source of Buddhist hate - past jihads.
The news source shoukd be “Deutsche Kapitulation”. Die neue Deutsche Welt.
They are fighting back. Look up what the Rohingya terrorists have been up to in Burma.
New York City was Buddhist?
She’s mean to Satanist terrorists ? Good.
Afghanistan was. If it still was, it wouldn’t be a center of terrorism.
Rohingya have been engaged in a savage jihad against everyone else in that area for centuries.
Canada, of course, supports global jihad.
Thanks anyway, but I’ll root for the Buddhists.
Canada sides with Islamic terrorists over long imprisoned advocate of freedom and democracy.
As will most of us. I have never heard of a Buddhist supremacist.
[ New York City was Buddhist? ]
Umm no.... Afghanistan used to be Buddhist....
Meaning if Afghanistan was still Buddhist, then 9/11 would probably have a lower chance of occurring.
How obnoxious do you have to be to piss off members of a real religion of peace, Buddhism?
I think we all know. As does any thinking person with a realistic view of the world.
Her father was a politician in Burma, who was a big supporter of the Japanese during WWII, while they were committing large scale genocide.
Resisting Islam is the duty of every free man.
Iran were the biggest backers of the 9/11 attack. So perhaps if Iran were still Zoroastrian? or at least if Carter didn’t back the “holy man” Khomeini over our ally the Shah?
