Recent from CGTN:
CGTN produced this report which features Daniel Dumbrill, whom they describe as a Canadian businessman. He is of the opinion that Hong Kong is “far freer” since it was returned to China following British rule.
Daniel Dumbrill, a Canadian businessman who has lived in the Hong Kong SAR and Shenzhen for over 11 years, gave his opinion on what he knows about the protests and the national security legislation for Hong Kong. #HongKong #HKCGTN YouTube Channel
Interestingly, Dumbrill has lived in Hong Kong “for over 11 years” which did not include the time when it was a British colony and dependent territory, which ended in 1997 (it ran from 1841 to 1997), so his opinion is not based on his own lived experiences.
