‘Canada is only a big Caribbean country:’ Response from expert

Paul Evans, a professor at UBC’s Institute of Asian Research, talks about Canada’s relationship with China, in a new interview with the Vancouver Sun.

Evans responded to comments made by UBC planning professor emeritus Setty Pendakur, who said loopholes in Canada’s immigration and investment policy make it possible for foreign nationals to use Canada as a tax haven.

“The loop holes are gradually being closed,” said Evans. “But Professor Pendakur is right – that we need to address the problem openly.  My sense is that it is not a China problem, but a Canadian regulatory problem.”
