Canada intends to join controversial Chinese infrastructure bank

Paul Evans of UBC’s Institute for Asian Research was interviewed by the Canadian Press about Canada’s plans to join a controversial China-led international infrastructure bank.

According to Evans, most officials think Canada should have joined the bank last year. However, he added that Ottawa has lingering wariness about supporting China’s global influence, particularly in view of its maneuvers in the South China Sea.
