Default Carrying dependant's passport for stamping

As per Canadian Consulate Hong Kong website:

"Dependants, if any, are not required to accompany the principal applicant to Hong Kong and, due to space restrictions, they will not be granted access to the waiting room if they do, nor will they be permitted to wait outside the waiting room. Please ensure, however, that you bring the passports of all family members who will receive visas."

Does law of Hong Kong allow to carry passport of other people(dependants)?

I emailed to general enquiry of HK immigration and they replied:
"According to laws of HK which does not confine anyone to carry passports of other persons. "

I am wondering do I have take letter of support from dependant or any other way?

My wife is the PA and we all together (plus 3 kids) went to Hong Kong to pick up our visa. My wife went alone to the Canadian Consulate by herself and had all the passports stamped.

Hope this helps.

Is it not possible that I take the passport of my wife and kid so that there is no need to travel for them? Anyway they need primary applicant for getting visas on all the passport.

IMHO.
I think, it is not necessary for the dependants to accompany the PA to Hkg, PA can just travel alone and bring all the passports to the consulate and have them stamped.

That was also our plan before, but then since we never visited Hkg, we all traveled to Hkg for a vacation last July 2004.

The answer is there already. Take the passports yourself and you will get the visas stamped into them.
