What is the impact of Joe Biden's election on Canada? - Spanish
Description: Silvia Mendez, Fabian Merlo - The head of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's election campaign was also the head of Joe Biden's campaign in the US. Joe Biden has promised to include the US in the climate change agreement again. Canada has been one of the main promoters of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Joe Biden said the US relationship with Canada needs be like eggs and ham, whereby you can't have one without the other. It's expected that Trudeau and Biden will have a much better relationship than Trudeau did with Trump. Radio host Silvia Mendez said for those of us who eat from this menu, in recent years we have learned it's not advisable to put all your eggs in one basket. Therefore, even if Canada-US relations are closer, hopefully we have learned not to put all our eggs in this basket, despite Joe Biden says. In terms of the influx of people crossing irregularly to Canada from the US, it's likely that the Safe Third Country Agreement will remain in place. Silvia Mendez noted that we need to be cautious with the topic of immigration in both Canada and Latin America. On another topic, it's expected that Biden's victory will put wind in the sails of the United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement.

As Biden wins election, Canada will welcome unprecedented waves of low immigration requirements - Chinese
Description: no byline - Democrat Joe Biden has been elected as the 46th US President, and mainstream media sources around the world are all announcing his victory! Prime Minister Trudeau expressed his congratulations to Biden via Twitter this morning. Although it is not clear what kind of policy changes Biden will make once he comes to power, it is almost certain that America’s policy changes for Chinese international students will be much better than what would have happened if Trump was re-elected. During the pandemic, the Trump government implemented waves of immigration restrictions, causing countless international students and foreign technical talents to turn their focus to Canada since Canada offers better immigration policies. Once Biden takes office, the United States’ immigration situation is bound to reverse – this means those foreign talents may not come to Canada after all. Therefore, we can infer that Canada’s immigration requirements are bound to decline in the next few years. The logic is relatively simple – Trump’s international students and immigration ban had prevented a substantial number of skilled talents from staying in United States, and these talents competed with us for Canada’s immigration quotas. Once Biden’s policies take effect, applicants who originally intended to come to Canada will regain their opportunity to continue working and studying in the United States. This means the competition for immigrating to Canada will decrease while immigration quotas have increased for 2021, 2022 and 2023, according to Minister of Immigration Marco Mendicino’s announcement last week. If the Canadian government wants to meet these new immigration goals, the immigration requirements are bound to drop! Therefore, Biden’s victory is undoubtedly good news for Canada’s international students and oversea applicants.

The U.S. election. and the Meng Wanzhou case - Chinese
Description: Liang Ying An, Wu Rui Zhen - Current affairs commentator Wu Rui Zhen accepted an interview with Sing Tao A1 Chinese Radio to discuss the U.S. election and Canada-China relations. Wu talked about the U.S. election and the Meng Wanzhou case. Wu said: "I believe a lot of evidence shows, and a lot former Liberal leaders feel, the Meng Wanzhou extradition case was a political case since the beginning. Trump wanted to suppress China, and used Huawei as a bargaining chip. If this political setup was his doing, then there's no way he would allow the U.S. to stop pursuing this matter. If Biden takes office, since this political setup was not his doing, if he feels that he doesn't need to use Huawei or Meng Wanzhou to suppress China, then he can talk with Canada to seek a proper resolution in the judicial process. This may change relations between China, the U.S. and Canada." https://dushi.singtao.ca/toronto/财经-分类/财经要闻/白宫之争如何影响加拿大处理软木争议与孟晚舟案/

Canada breathes a sigh of relief at Biden’s victory - Korean
Description: No byline - Canada breathes a sigh of relief at Joe Biden’s victory in the U.S. presidential election, because the Canada-U.S. relationship has been tragic through Trump’s turbulent term. Trump sometimes even threw insults or threats Canada’s way. Here are some things Biden’s victory means for Canadians. First, the Canada-U.S. border restrictions could ease. Second, it could be the end of the Keystone XL pipeline. Third, Biden’s trade policy wouldn’t be much different from Trump’s as Biden is a fan of “buy American” policy. Fourth, fears of the rise of Trumpism in Canadian politics will ease. Fifth, revitalized multinational institutions will allow Canada to thrive again in the world. Sixth, Biden’s climate and environmental policies and commitment to green energy offer the prospect of a better shared environment.
