Taking A Stand For Hong Kong’s Autonomy

Canada and other members of the international community must hold Beijing accountable for its violations of laws and treaties.
I and dozens of Canadian MPs joined hundreds of other lawmakers from around the world in opposition to Communist China imposing a draconian national-security law against so-called “subversive activity” on the free people of Hong Kong. Subversive activities are what dictators call free speech and democratic liberties.
The imposition of this law is a flagrant breach of the Sino-British Joint Declaration, the 1984 treaty Beijing accepted, which guaranteed Hong Kong a high degree of autonomy after the 1997 handover of the British territory to China.
