OTTAWA, Nov 20 (LSN)  Prime Minister Jean Chretien announced a Canadian initiative to improve human rights in China yesterday. “We have been working more intensively with China on the human side of development over the last few years,” he said. The PM boasted that Canada has “a track-record of engagement that makes a real difference for people” with China.  How this proposal plays out in practice remains to be seen. Chretien’s track-record on human rights is spotty at best. Pro-life forces expect a legitimate policy against human rights abuses in China to include decisive opposition to the horrendous forced-abortion policy, the on-going persecution of people of faith, and thorough investigation of allegations about trafficking in the body parts of prisoners.  To see the PM’s press release go to:
