多倫多教育局取消孔子學院
     

【明慧網二零一四年十一月一日】(明慧記者章韻、肖妍多倫多綜合報導)「孔子學院就是一個間諜機構,為中共所操控和利用。孔子學院對加拿大的確是一種威脅,大量證據已顯示,孔子學院就是被中共利用,充當一個間諜機構,被利用來招募一些從事間諜行為的人。孔子學院多年來在許多國家一個常用策略就是,通過政治上的滲透,操控其政治觀點和言論。」前加拿大情報局(CSIS)亞太事務部主管卡特蘇亞(Michel Juneau-Katsuya)在教育局的辯論會上說。

前加拿大情報局亞太事務部主管卡特蘇亞(Michel Juneau-Katsuya)在多倫多教育局的辯論會上發言經過五個多月的辯論和教委的討論,加拿大多倫多公校教育局(TDSB)的教育委員們於二零一四年十月二十九日晚投票表決,以二十比二高票通過取消與孔子學院的合作計劃,同時投票通過,將已經收到的二十二萬五千元歸還中方,徹底解決這個困擾了多倫多近半年的問題。

事件回放

多倫多教育局與孔子學院之間的合作辦學,最初由前教委主席波爾頓(Chris Bolton)一手推動和操辦,其他教育委員對於合作計劃細節均被蒙在鼓裏。二零一四年的五月二十二日,多倫多舉行了孔子學院開幕儀式,但孔子學院的背景及其所起的滲透作用對各地社會環境造成的影響,令多倫多很多家長和民眾憂心,兩週內數千人簽署反對此事的請願信,二十二名教育委員也收到大量來自選民表達不滿的電話和郵件。六月十一日教育局會議前,數百位市民嘴上綁著黑布條在教育局外抗議,當晚會議通過了暫停孔子學院的動議。兩天後,積極推動設孔子學院的教育局主席波爾頓突然辭職。 六月十八日,教育局全體委員會議前,四百多市民又來到教育局外抗議,引起主流媒體關注。最終,教育委員投票通過暫停孔子學院。十月一日,加拿大前情報局高級官員卡特蘇亞(Michel Juneau-Katsuya)在教育局會議上以個人身份作證表示,孔子學院是中共的情報機構。當晚會議通過動議,十月二十九日全體教育委員投票表決,終止與孔子學院的合作。

前加情報局官員: 孔子學院就是中共間諜機構

教育局會議上,在多倫多教育局部份教育委員面前,支持和反對孔子學院的雙方進行了辯論。前加拿大情報局(CSIS)亞太事務部主管卡特蘇亞(Michel Juneau-Katsuya)在十月一日的辯論發言中說:「目前已有許多西方國家公開文件明確點出,孔子學院就是一個間諜機構,為中共所操控和利用。孔子學院對加拿大的確是一種威脅,大量證據已顯示,孔子學院就是被中共利用,充當一個間諜機構,被利用來招募一些從事間諜行為的人。孔子學院多年來在許多國家一個常用策略就是,通過政治上的滲透,操控其政治觀點和言論。」他說,網絡上有許多西方國家和機構公布的關於孔子學院搞間諜活動的海量證據。中共自己的文件也明確說過,孔子學院是其施加影響和軟實力的一個有效手段。中共還利用孔子學院,借傳播語言和文化的幌子,物色對自己有利的人,鎖定哪些是異議人士,找出哪些行業可以派人偷取商業和科技資料。要知道,孔子學院不僅教學校學生,還在海外大公司內開設課堂,打著教中文的幌子,背後物色人或乾脆收買這些公司內部的人來搞商業間諜活動。孔子學院就像中共在海外培植的許多其他華人團體一樣,組織嚴密,向外兜售中共軟實力,已被西方情報機構確認為中共間諜機構,為中共服務。他說,中共間諜歷史悠久,已經有幾十年歷史,有一整套非常複雜精細的操作系統。中國文化博大精深,中文又是非常優美的語言,許多西方國家的人都想了解。中共掌握這一點,如看到哪個人有名,就邀請到中國以紅地毯、美酒佳餚,安排數百數千學生歡迎,當貴客款待,此人就會覺得自己真的很重要了。中共就掌握這種普通人的心理,即我給你好處,你就會心存感激,有虧欠感,就想著要報答,中共就利用這種人心,實現自己的目的。中共一次又一次利用這一伎倆,我們看到,許多加國政客、市長和民選官員,原來還對中共有看法,但去了中國一趟,被中共長時間灌滿美酒佳餚回來之後,許多在中國問題立場上就變了。多年來,加拿大情報局在這方面有許多記錄,也在嚴密觀察和分析,加拿大情報局的任務就是保護這個國家、政府,提醒政府和公民要當心一些危險。任何人都不得利用語言和文化交流目的,來監視加國公民和搞間諜活動。

中領館總領事親自上陣 凸顯中共幕後黑手

眼見孔子學院多倫多無法立足,湖南省教育廳匆忙在十月二十三日發函終止與加拿大多倫多教育局有關孔子學院的合約,此後,中共駐多倫多總領事房利不甘失敗,於十月二十五日「號召」多倫多華人華僑「行使權利」,並在十月二十九日投票當天動用巴士,一車一車地拉來不明真相的華人在教育局前抗議,並聲稱要在多倫多教育局新教委上任後重新「引進」孔子學院。在多倫多地區公校教過數年中文的章為群說:「現在美國人已經清楚地說,孔子學院是宣傳共產黨的,與孔子沒關係。」「中共外交官的言行說明,中共是孔子學院背後的推手的事實。」多倫多時事評論員李天明說,湖南教育廳主動要求終止合約,肯定是與中共中央政府有關部門商量好才決定的,他們估計這個孔子學院項目「百分之百要失敗」。所以希望提前取消這項目,「給自己一個台階下,挽回顏面」;同時減小其結果對其它地區孔子學院的影響。他說,但中共很想在多倫多辦孔子學院,所以出現了駐多倫多總領事房利呼籲加拿大華人去給教育局施壓的事。「既然中共當局說,孔子學院是個純粹的教育機構,沒有政治背景,作為總領事為何參與?」李天明稱,中共做的一切,不是為了中國的利益,而是為了共產黨的利益。「對外他們是掛著民族、祖國、人民這些漂亮的口號,但在內部講話上,談的都是黨的利益,黨的生命。」李天明說,房利這樣做不可能是個人想法。「因為中共講究集體責任制,任何個人都不可能隨便發表政治聲明或政治呼籲」;「必須後面有政策性支持,或領導批准。講話的人只不過是一個發聲筒而已。」

教育委員:堅決制止多倫多的孩子被中共灌輸和洗腦

取消跟孔子學院的合作,多倫多公校教育局成為繼加拿大麥克馬斯特大學和Sherbrooke大學之後取消與孔子學院合作的另一家加拿大教育機構。教育委員Pamela Gough說,孔子學院不是民主國家的教育機構,是由中共直接操控,不認同加拿大核心價值,也不認同多倫多教育局的教育價值。加拿大價值包括言論自由,孔子學院想利用自己的價值來搞滲透,就得堅決制止。過去的幾個月,孔子學院顯然成了教委們的負擔。教育委員Pamela Gough會後說,她「感覺大大鬆了一口氣」。她說:「孔子學院協議中有太多東西此前沒公布,教育委員完全被蒙在鼓裏,所有事情從一開始就都被有意偷偷摸摸掩蓋,造成很多混亂。」Gough表示,「對於中共方面派到孔子學院的教師沒有言論自由,孔子學院與中共背後的真正關係,教育委員們也是完全不知情。」現任多倫多教委主席路特卡(Mari Rutka)在投票結語中說,自己也一直擔心,圍繞孔子學院的爭議,已遠遠超過其本身帶來的好處。教育局也得考慮,幾家大學已有前車之鑑,不想再和孔子學院合作。再說,教育局已經有廣東話、普通話、簡體中文和正體中文等豐富的中文教學。教育委員John Hastings說:「今晚,這件事應被結束,永遠結束。在我們的歷史上不再有怪物。」

Toronto District School Board Ends Partnership with Confucius Institute

November 02, 2014 | By Minghui correspondents Zhang Yun and Xiao Yan

                                
(Minghui.org) Toronto District School Board (TDSB), Canada's largest school board, decided to terminate its agreement with the Confucius Institute (CI) at the end of October. It has also decided to return $225,000 to China and put the issue that has troubled Toronto for about half a year to an end.

“There is publicly available information stating clearly that Western counter-intelligence agencies have identified Confucius Institutes as forms of spy agencies used by the [Chinese] government and employed by the [Chinese] government,” stated Michel Juneau-Katsuya, former chief of Asia-Pacific for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, during his speech at a TDSB committee meeting on October 1.“A common strategy used by the Confucius Institute in many countries over the years was manipulating political views and comments by means of political infiltration,”

Mr. Juneau-Katsuya told the Epoch Times in Canada. He said that the CIs also recruit spies for commercial espionage by hosting Chinese language classes in Western corporations.The committee voted against the Confucius Institute on the same day. The decision by the entire board came about on October 29.“Such relief, such relief! We did the right thing,” said trustee Irene Atkinson at the end of the meeting.“The direct connections between the Confucius Institutes and the communist party of China, once that was made clear to the TDSB trustees, I think they were extremely uncomfortable with that,” said trustee Pamela Gough.“They were very uncomfortable with the lack of freedom of speech on the part of the teachers hired in China to come over,” Ms. Gough added.

Former TDSB chairman Chris Bolton initiated the partnership with the CI. The agreement details were not disclosed to trustees, according to Ms. Gough.After the CI opening ceremony on May 22, many parents and citizens in Toronto learned about the pro-Chinese Communist Party background and its ideological infiltration in communities. Over 1,000 people signed a petition letter to the TDSB in within two weeks. The TDSB trustees also received many complaining phone calls and emails.Several hundred citizens protested outside of the TDSB before its meeting on June 11. The board passed a motion to suspend the CI. Chris Bolton resigned two days later. Over 400 protested before an all-hands meeting of TDSB on June 18.Chinese Consul General Fang Li urged Toronto’s Chinese community to “exercise its rights” on October 25. On October 29, the day of the TDSB board meeting, the Chinese consulate in Toronto dispatched buses to transport local Chinese to protest in front of the TDSB and claimed to “re-introduce” the CI after new trustees come to post.Zhang Weiqun, who has taught Chinese in the Toronto school district for many years, said, “Confucius Institutes promote the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It has nothing to do with Confucius... The behaviors of the Chinese diplomat shows the fact that the CCP is the real driver for the CI.”Both McMaster University and the University of Sherbrooke in Canada have also ended their partnerships with the institutes.In the United States, the Pennsylvania State University and the University of Chicago terminated their partnerships with the controversial program over the past few months, and the faculty of the Dickinson State University in North Dakota voted against establishing a CI despite an earlier approval by the state’s Board of Education. The Lyon Confucius Institute in France also ceased operation last year.
