So how is this conflict likely to play out and with an estimated 300000 Canadians in Hong Kong? What’S at stake for Canada, Gordon Holden is a former Canadian Diplomat to China. He’S been posted to Hong Kong, twice an Institute at the University of Alberta from Edmonton hi, professor nice, to see you again troop carriers moving to the Hong Kong border, President Trump in a Tweed confirm the same thing. How big of a deal is that secretary, large ones and thousands of people and now they’re not only allowing some coverage, but my portraying the capacity to respond action, which means they are probably obliged to have some measurable order to do so? Then they I take. It stand right indicated to do it themselves. Protest is hard to read the future I find, but I like an Oregon police, suppress the demonstrations or at least bring them, unto a measure of control I rather than a Devine themselves. I think that they know that direct intervention by the alarm, please what the calculation might be for China as it weighs whether or not to to more directly intervene, is it is it primarily economic?

If you have Chinese viewers watching what they there’s nothing about it, that may send the wrong signal to Chinese people. That view of the authorities people employed and they really need to keep the economy. Prime minister, Justin Trudeau, did weigh on an extremely worried, very careful and very respectful and how it deals with the protesters.

Of course, about the Detention of Michael Cobra to Michaels fabric, following the arrest of a sea of the CFO Hawaii weather back in December and a whole host of other things, trade-wise that have happened since our big restraints on the government. They have to consider the detainees. We also have listening and other security issues as many problems in a relationship limits to what kind of making other situations worse escalation of Demands on the demonstrators part are more direct democracy for Hong Kong is also a non-starter, so demonstrations using violence, bean bags, water cannon Or rubber bullets – those are things which we could have danced here, I’m on one side of the other resulting from the violence of the demonstration. So I think it’s important both sides, but I tried to give you full marks because she dug her heels on the extradition treaty then was forced off that that never looks good Chinese are very gently. Hong Kong is very concerned face face when she was demonstrated to not be able to hold that line.
