Dominic Barton has announced he will be stepping down as Canada’s ambassador to China. Barton, a former executive in a consulting firm , will step down at the end of December.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appointed Barton in 2019, and tasked him with freeing Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor from Chinese detention.
Now that the task is done, David Akin explains why the departure might mean a new approach to relations between the two countries, as Ottawa still faces many diplomatic challenges with Beijing.
