My name is Charles Labrecque and I am a Postgraduate Research Fellow at the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, an independent, not-for-profit think tank specializing in Canada-Asia relations.
On the occasion of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s visit to China, the APFC had just launched a new Conversation on Canada-China relations.
We ask the question: What issues do you think PM Harper should pursue on his trip to China?
By responding to this question, our various prominent discussants have expressed their views regarding the issue and its wider implications. We hope that their responses will stimulate discussion and lead to an engaging dialogue on the website.

Our delegation’s first two days in Taiwan have been very fast-paced, exciting and informative. We’ve met with representatives from the KMT headquarters, DPP headquarters, western and Taiwanese academics, and students who have provided many colorful comments and interesting insights about the dynamics of democratic deepening, identity issues, and cross-strait relations.
As a University of Toronto student, trying to cover the January 2012 election in Taiwan, I can't help but be frustrated by the lack of coverage in Canadian media, as well as News outlets like the Guardian who have little to no coverage of the events of the 2012 election.
