Kia Ora, this is Stick News. The Dalai Lama will become an honorary citizen of Canada next month and China isn’t too happy about it.
In 1949 Tibet was invaded by China.
Ten years later the leader of Tibet, the Dalai Lama, ran away.
Since then he’s been living and leading in other countries. And he has lots of fans – including the Canadian government. They decided unanimously last month to give him an honorary citizenship.
The Chinese government isn’t so keen on the man.
A Chinese politician in Canada said he wasn’t happy about the award.
And that was Stick News for Thursday the 27th of July.
