MLI's Ambassador on Canada-China Policy, Anastasia Lin, delivered a speech before the Oxford Union Society as part of a debate on the following motion: "This House Would Start A New Cold War With China."

As Lin points out in her remarks, the question is inherently flawed. She argues that China is already engaged in adversarial, aggressive behaviour; authorities in Beijing are already on a Cold War footing. Lin warns that it is time for the world to come to terms with the true nature of the Chinese Communist Party and respond accordingly.
