For the week of Oct. 31, 2021:
The 100-day countdown to next February’s Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics came and went last week.
Human rights protesters around the world called on western nations to boycott the most-controversial Olympics since Berlin 1936, due to China’s treatment of Uyghurs, Tibetans and Hong Kongers, and the threat to annex Taiwan.
On this edition, host Bob Mackin’s guest is Charles Burton, a former diplomat in Canada’s embassy in China and now a senior fellow in the Macdonald-Laurier Institute think tank.
Plus commentary on the B.C. NDP’s controversial Freedom of Information Bill 22 and Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
