I think we've moved into a very different period in terms of international affairs in which China is using middle-powers' relationships with the United States and its asymmetrical economic relationships with other middle powers to shape its decisions.
I think a very good example of that, of course, is the case of Ms. Meng Wanzhou, with the British Columbia government making the decision to proceed with the extradition case. We've seen the Chinese government use punitive economic measures against Canadian businesses and the Canadian agriculture community to try to shape Canadian behaviour.
Moving forward, and again this goes back to my proposition about a musketeer clause, Canada needs to forge partnerships, trade agreements and international agreements with other middle powers in which they agree to back each other when China is applying punitive economic measures. This is something more, looking forward, of what Canada can do and how Canada can exert a leadership position and bring together like-minded countries to pressure China but also protect Canadian interests.
