  1. ‘Yau, 53, said he has also challenged Beijing’s stance on the Hong Kong protests — prompting threats from listeners to kill his family and rape his daughter’

    – I’m ashamed that this is happening in my country. Canada has been negligent and let a Chinese nationalistic cancer fester and worm it’s way into our economy and society. It needs to be pushed back against, hard.

  2. A gift Hong Kong is giving us is the ability to clearly see just how far China has sunken its tendrils into the west. Western business I mean. It’s like litmus paper. Just say “Free Hong Kong” and find out who actually controls your company.

  3. Fairchild radio is basically THE radio station for every chinese Canadian, especially for older folks.And if you were to go to any Chinese establishment that sold the Ming Po or Sing Tao newspapers you’d see nonstop bias towards the Hong Kong protests. The propaganda runs pretty deep even on this side of the pond to convince the older generation, but is at the very least countered by the large Hong Kong Chinese population that still remains in Toronto and Vancouver. It’s unfortunate that mainland Chinese influence is so strong now that local entities have to pander to them.

  4. The world needs to grow a pair and tell China to fuck off

  5. I’m not Canadian, is there any recourse for this man? What is public opinion of the Hong Kong protests there? Is it likely that furthering this story would help him and others who are being punished for supporting pro-democracy protests?

  6. China is not your friend. Chinese money is not there to help. Chinese business in the west are not diversifying nor there just for business.

  7. I work with a women who is a permanent resident, but originally from China, and we were chatting the other day about the current situation. It was amazing to see just how much she had bought into the nationalism and borderline brainwashing of the Chinese government.

  8. As a German, this reminds of something.

    Chinazis.

  9. Canada also has bills regulating speech and Canadians have been fined and fired over this.

    Either you support free speech for those you disagree with or you don’t support free speech.

  10. ‘Yau, 53, said he has also challenged Beijing’s stance on the Hong Kong protests — prompting threats from listeners to kill his family and rape his daughter’

  11. It’s scary that pharmaceutical companies have outsourced all manufacturing to China.

    These companies fatten their bottom lines while risking the safety and availability of lifesaving drugs.

  12. We just need to frame this as a gaming developer or gaming journalism matter, and things will handle themselves.

  13. It’s going to be interesting seeing a country violate labor law and freedom of speech laws, and how ill-equipped the constitution and law enforcement are to handle the dilemma.

    It reminds me of the phenomenon where people outlaw labor practices in their country but don’t blink to purchase something from another country made against those laws. And yet, you have other cases like pharmaceuticals where a GMP facility on foreign soil receives U.S. government inspectors. It’s such a bizarre conundrum.

  14. Businesses are Private Communist Governments, you don’t get an opinion or can speak out about your personal views at work. I knew of a small business owner that fired two people because they didn’t vote for who he liked and just said the “business wasn’t doing well and had to let them go.”

  15. How is it legal to fire him for that? cmon polititcians explain that to me ,id like to know before the Canadian election whether or not you are gonna bend over to china.

  16. Canada is China’s bitch and will continue to be for the foreseeable future

  17. Well it seems the people now have the blueprint and power to get China out of their lives or China will have to change. We just need to keep bad mouthing them until they ban each of us/company/country, which in return is doing what a lot of us wanted to anyway, stop giving them all the mfg jobs. If we knew it would be so easy?

  18. China is in charge ATM. When a certain Country’s Government’s preferences are enforced in other countries, and non-citizens face consequences for criticizing them, the next steps on this slope are much more troubling.

  19. i can’t stress this enough….Fuck China.

  20. It is time that nations restart recognizing Republic of China (AKA Taiwan) as the real China that it always was, and stop bending back and opening their arses to the crying snowflakes that is PRC.

  21. It is like people believe that corporations should have everyone’s best interest at heart rather than decisions about the bottom line. Instead, in this thread we have a collection of people who are working on developing and reinforcing their own anti-China rhetoric.

  22. I stubbed my toe the other day after seeing a Winnie the Pooh meme I blame China.
