We would start a new Cold War with China speech
Macdonald-Laurier Institute’s Ambassador on Canada-China Policy, Anastasia Lin, delivered a speech before the Oxford Union Society as part of a debate on the following motion: “This House Would Start A New Cold War With China.”
As Lin points out in her remarks, the question is inherently flawed. She argues that China is already engaged in adversarial, aggressive behaviour; authorities in Beijing are already on a Cold War footing. Lin warns that it is time for the world to come to terms with the true nature of the Chinese Communist Party and respond accordingly.
Set aside for a moment that Anastasia Lin, actress and Miss World Canada 2015, chose to argue before the prestigious Oxford Union wearing a strapless evening gown. Her courage in exposing China before an audienceis remarkable, on a par with that of Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Recorded 31 March 2020.
