Vancouver protesters continue show of support for Hong Kong during G20

Vancouver protesters continue show of support for Hong Kong during G20 Demonstrators staged a silent stand-in downtown Vancouver Sunday to continue protesting a Chinese extradition bill in Hong Kong. The bill would have forced Hong Kong citizens to face criminal charges in mainland China, and was seen by many as a sign of the Chinese government’s growing influence. While Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam had suspended the bill amid massive protests, pro-democracy demonstrators continue to push for the bill’s permanent withdrawal and her resignation. Millions have rallied in recent weeks around the world including in Vancouver.

OTTAWA — Former prime minister Jean Chretien is receiving treatment for a kidney stone in Hong Kong after falling ill there, says a spokesman.

"Mr. Chretien has a kidney stone," said Bruce Hartley, a former executive assistant to Chretien. "He will return to Canada following treatment to remove it in Hong Kong."

Chretien, 85, was scheduled to speak at the U.S-China Trade and Economic Relations Forum in Hong Kong Tuesday.

Instead he was taken to hospital shortly after landing in the semi-independent Chinese territory Monday evening.

Tung Chee-hwa, a former leader of the semi-independent Chinese territory, told attendees at the conference that Chretien would not be able to make it to the event.

Open letter from Chinese-Canadian groups boosts Hong Kong government, blasts protesters As protesters in Hong Kong continue to rally against Beijing’s tightening grip on the city, dozens of Chinese-Canadian groups have delivered a different message, voicing support for the enclave’s China-backed government and singling out violent “extremists” among the demonstrators. The open letter published recently in Vancouver and Toronto Chinese-language newspapers is raising questions about who was behind the statement, with some fingers pointing at the Chinese government and its influence machine. The authors of the message deny any outside involvement.

"I want to deliver an apology because Jean Chretien, the prime minister of Canada, he arrived here very late last night," Tung said, according to a transcript of his remarks. "And we were supposed to have breakfast together. But he has not been well. And as a precaution, we have taken him to a hospital. We think it is going to be all right. So wish him all the best."

Chretien was prime minister from 1993 to 2003. Expanding trade with China was a theme in Chretien's time in office and he's continued working on business links between China and North America since he went back to private life.
