Terence – A group of Hong Kongers in Canada want the situation in Hong Kong to be a federal election issue in Canada. Non-profit organization Canada-Hong Kong Link President Gloria Fung is trying to push a new petition to raise awareness among Canadians about the unrest, with many fearing a tightening grip by China over the semi-autonomous region. Fung told the CBC that there are 300,000 Canadians in Hong Kong, therefore, whatever is going on in Hong Kong will also have a serious impact on Canadians living, working or even transiting there. She said, “We also want our current members of parliament as well as candidates who are running in the federal election to be aware of what they can do in order to address Canadians’ concerns towards Hong Kong.”
