Critics have complained that the Chinese government is looking to secure access to natural resources through an aggressive global investment program by its state-owned enterprises, but is less willing to allow western countries to invest in its country. The Bank of Nova Scotia, for example, has been waiting for months for approval to close its purchase of Bank of Guangzhou, a matter Mr. Harper raised when he visited Beijing last February.

The Prime Minister also acknowledged that a takeover of a Canadian company by Chinese state-owned enterprises is not supported by a majority of Canadians. According to a recent survey by the Asia-Pacific Foundation of Canada, just 16 per cent of Canadians are in favour of Chinese state firms buying Canadian companies.


I'm not in that 16% in favour group, by the way. coffeetime.gif

This was predicted. Everybody wants our resources. What's next, our fresh water?


In skimming the link above, it looks like Canada is not a big player in the oil market anyway, so whateva.
