This year’s Miss Canada is Anastasia Lin, a Canadian of Chinese descent. She is also a rights activist.
But, since this year’s Miss World contest is being held in China, this queers the pitch a bit, and may cause embarrassment, given Miss Lin’s antecedents.
To prevent embarrassment, the Canadian organisers have promised that Lin will keep her mouth shut regarding human rights abuse in China if she is allowed entry into the Dragon nation.
However, Lin has denied agreeing to keep quiet.
