Lead­ers of over­seas Chi­nese groups in Canada read the “Peace Ini­tia­tive” to com­mem­o­rate vic­tims of the Nan­jing Mas­sacre on Dec 13 in Toronto. More than 200 peo­ple in­clud­ing of­fi­cials from Cana­dian gov­ern­ment at­tended the event. On the same day in 1937, Ja­panese troops in­vaded then Chi­nese cap­i­tal Nan­jing and in the next six weeks, more than 300,000 Chi­nese civil­ians and sol­diers were killed and at least 20,000 women raped.
