Charles Burton, associate professor of political science at Brock University who is a former diplomat in Beijing and has written books on the Middle Kingdom, says the key to moving forward might be for Mr. Baird to become familiar with the changing situation in China. At that point, he may adjust Canada's foreign policy to become engaged in trying to support the agents of change in the country-as opposed to trying to convince the Chinese Communist Party leadership that democracy and human rights are simply a good thing. This will involve more of what Mr. Baird referred to as "people-to-people" ties, rather than government-to-government.

Click here for Geoffrey York's article entitled " Chinese whispers: the Maple Leaf's weakening sway in Beijng Canada can bluster, but China's not listening. Why should they?" published in the Globe and Mail May 5, 2007, p. F3. The relevant part reads: "Within the Canadian political and academic elite, there are two schools of thought on China. The first philosophy, promoted by business lobbyists and Liberal MPs, is the notion of high-level engagement, which assumes that a warm and friendly personal relationship between Canadian and Chinese leaders will produce economic benefits for Canada. The gurus of engagement are think tanks such as the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, based in Vancouver, and scholars such as Wenran Jiang of the University of Alberta, who has close connections to Canadian diplomats and the Canadian energy industry and has tried to bridge the differences between the two countries.?The other philosophy, supported by many Conservative MPs and human-rights groups, is to push harder for political freedom in China, even if this means angering China by supporting Tibet and Taiwan. On this side of the spectrum, the Tories are listening to scholars such as Charles Burton of Brock University, who wrote an influential report on the weaknesses of Canada's annual human-rights dialogue with China. His report was the inspiration for public hearings by a parliamentary subcommittee headed by Conservative MP Jason Kenney, a strong believer in human rights in China."
