As quickly as he arrived back in Canada from his European vacation, he is now back abroad. Where in the world is Mike Ignatieff now? He's visiting China. I for one look forward to reading Donolo's press releases to see how they try to spin the visit as it unfolds. Someone should forward a message the Chinese media that Iggy has the worst personal approval ratings of any Canadian federal leader and is unlikely to ever be elected Prime Minister. People in glass houses shouldn't throw snake oil, right? If Rasputin tries that Jedi mind trick where he attempts to convince you that one day he will ascend to our highest office, pay no attention to the Czarist behind the curtain.
Remember, during the summer of 2008 (Beijing Olympics) Stephen Harper took a hard stance on Chinese government human rights abuses? The Libs tried to scream foul, and a couple of months later the Tories significantly increased their vote totals in polling districts with large Asian populations (prime case study, Richmond). Evidently, the people who decided to leave China and are now in Canada don't have a lot of nice things to say about the Chinese government. In fact, the government is a big reason that many of them left their homeland in the first place. Kissing the rear end of the Chinese government may not be the best way for Iggy to breakthrough with Canada’s Asian community.
