Ms. Zhang says she became a target for several years after speaking out publicly against the oppression of Falun Gong.

Michelle Zhang, a Canadian of Chinese origin, is calling on the government to confront Beijing’s foreign interference. She says she and her family have endured ongoing threats and harassment in Canada over the last 22 years, which she asserts is an extension of the regime’s persecution of her spiritual adherence to Falun Gong.

In 2001, while living in Vancouver, Ms. Zhang says she became a target for several years after speaking out publicly against the oppression of Falun Gong practitioners by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). For example, around 2003, her car window was smashed while parked overnight outside her apartment building, and months later, she discovered that someone had dumped a large amount of excrement on her balcony.

“I didn’t have any personal enemies and had just moved into the apartment not long before. [Only] a few friends knew where I lived. So who did that?” she said at a press conference on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Oct. 25, at which the Falun Dafa Association of Canada (FDAC) released a report detailing the CCP’s foreign interference over the past 24 years targeting residents in Canada who practise Falun Gong.
