The Government of Canada recently trotted out a new relaxed policy towards Chinese Visa applicants and temporary workers. The Liberals claimed that the changes were entirely of their own creation but National Post columnist Terry Glavin is suspicious:
“Now we’re expected to believe that Wang’s little-noticed demand that Canada boost the supply of visas available to Chinese citizens who are in good standing with Beijing was actually a Canadian idea. We will all be expected to believe a great deal of claptrap like this in the coming days, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s visit to China approaches in advance of the Sept. 4-5 G20 Summit in Hangzhou. So be alert.”
I spoke with Glavin about the new policy and his belief that the Liberal government is far too quick to acquiesce to Chinese demands.
