At a news conference on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Marco Mendicino, the minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship, announces a number of measures aimed at easing the process for students and other young Hong Kong residents wishing to work or seek permanent residency in Canada. He also indicates that the federal government will offer assistance to Canadian citizens and permanent residents living in Hong Kong who wish to return to Canada. The announcements come following further actions by China aimed at suppressing dissent within the semi-autonomous region of Hong Kong.
