As Hong Kong is going through a watershed moment of a protracted social protest movement, status quo presents as less and less a sustainable option. Change of sufficient breath and impact to quell social discontent and anti-establishment emotions behind the recent street activism will have fateful social and political implications for Hong Kong as a whole. What roles, if any, does Canada have to play in response to different change scenarios probable for Hong Kong? This English-language public forum engages this question, bringing diverse expert insights and perspectives to bear on a dialogue among participants.
