On the surface, it seems that many people from China living in Canada do not shy away from voicing their political opinions. This month, at McMaster University, a Chinese student group issued a statement condemning a Uyghur activist’s speech at the university that criticized the Chinese government’s treatment of the Uyghur minority in China. At the University of Toronto, Chinese students signed a petition protesting the election of a Tibetan student who supports greater freedom for Tibetans in China to be student union president. And since December, many Chinese immigrants in Vancouver have taken to the streets to protest the Canadian authorities’ arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou.
