Another talk "Hong Kong's Democratic Future" was held by Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada on Wednesday. Chan and Lee discussed Hong Kong's current political crisis and democratic development.

Kyoyo Protocol = Wake-up Call

Today, Canadians shouldn’t feel shame; they should be angry, betrayed and saddened at the diminishment of Canada, at home and around the world, by this government. By their action during the climate change conference in Durban, South Africa.

Every Canadian. Any political affiliation. Any region. Any religion, Any race. Any ability.

Remember this is not the Canadian government, but the ‘Harper government,’ I am just as happy to be distant from this pack of bullies in suits.

I can’t be distant though. These people represent our country, you and me. They speak for us. They should pay some attention to the values that we share. Equality might be a good start. Or environmental responsibility.
