The Globe and Mail reports that Anastasia Lin, Canada’s candidate for Miss World, has been warned by her father who still lives in China not to continue speaking about China’s poor human rights record. Her father has apparently received threats from Chinese officials. Although her mother lives in Canada and is divorced from her father, Lin is concerned that her father’s livelihood will be affected but she does not intend to stop talking about politics in relation to China. In an ironic twist, this year’s edition of the pageant will be held in China.
Congrats to her for winning but as she wonders herself, will China give her visa to enter China for the final competition? You can also listen to her in this CBC radio segment and find out more from this Epoch Times article.
