Canada, China at dawn of golden decade

The Chinese paper Global Times interviewed Paul Evans, a professor at UBC’s Institute of Asian Research, about the expectations for Canadian-Chinese relations under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

“Under Trudeau, Canadians are acting like Canadians again. And under President Xi Jinping, on global issues, China is emerging as a global leader, not just a global player. So I think if it is not a golden era, it can be era of common commitment and common accomplishment on global issues,” Evans said.
