Canada - China Relations Special Committee Coverage
In December 2019, the House of Commons approved the creation of a Special Committee on Canada-China Relations (CACN) and was passed by opposition parties without support from the Liberal government. The committee will examine “all aspects” of the Canada-China relationship, including economic and diplomatic relations. With the opposition parties holding a majority on the committee, it is expected to exercise wide latitude and remain active for the foreseeable future.
