Canadian Chamber of Commerce Cautions Harper Over China Policy

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce is telling Prime Minister Stephen Harper to be cautious in his recent decision to chill relations with China.

"Policy decisions affecting China cannot be taken in isolation from their impact on trade and investment and are best dealt with through ongoing senior-level engagement between both countries," reads the report, released Tuesday in advance of the chamber's annual general meeting this weekend.

Jason Kenney, bombastic Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister, has spoken harshly on matters concerning China recently. A chill in our relationship with China is a direct result of the fusion of Conservative Party ideology into Canada’s official foreign policy.

It will be interesting to see if Harper maintains a right wing ideological approach in these dealings or will voices from the Canadian business community force the Tories to return to a more pragmatic policy that understands the intricacies of foreign affairs.
