The Canadian High Commission in Georgetown, Guyana is the primary channel for communications between the Government of Canada and a legitimate Government of Guyana.
So, when HE Chatterjee joined with the other international diplomats and accredited election observers to challenge the flawed tabulation of results from the March 2nd general election, she was engaged in what was expected of her by Canada’s Government, the Foreign Ministry and the people of Canada.
The petition and letter based on frivolous grounds, are asking for the recall of Lilian Chatterjee as Canada’s High Commissioner to Guyana.
Consequently a counter petition in support of HE Chatterjee and other diplomats who are championing democracy in Guyana, was initiated by an apolitical ad hoc group, that does not ask for or accept donations, ‘Democracy Watch 2020’ and uploaded on change.org (Supporting the Canadian High Commissioner and others championing democracy in Guyana).
We strongly urge our Canadian Government to stay the course, lend our diplomat all the support she needs by strengthening her hand and to demand that local authorities in Guyana facilitate the completion of her work, without hindrance.
