Hong Kong was so much better off, when under Britsh rule....no wonder so many fled to Canada and USA with whatever fortunes, they had.....you just never hear anything about HK anymore.....too bad, once great city....

So true. There is no future for Hong Kong but decline and obscurity. With only 35 years until "one country, two systems" ends, if the CCP regime lasts that long Hong Kong will become little different from Dongguan, or any of the other nondescript Pearl River Delta cities. That will be the end of HK's legal system and status as a financial centre, and the once-thriving expat communities will melt away.

Canada and other Western countries have gained greatly in capital and talent, so welcome to new Canadians and bye to Hong Kong. The children of these new Canadians will read of Hong Kong's exceptional past in school, but likely not bother to take the time to visit. Why?

Mirolyuba, in retrospect, Canada was brilliant in their welcoming the chinese that had the assets and desire to leave HK, prior to the change over. All one has to do is look at the increase in culture and wealth of cities like, Vancouver to realize just how forward thinking that was.....sadly, meanwhile here in America we were taking in all the haitians with AIDs and mexicans swimming across the border.....we snooze, we lose....

Yeah, Mirolyuba, you're still lamenting about your good old days as a Running-Dog for the British during their days in Hong Kong. Is that why you're in Canada now?

A lot of those Hongkies that fled to Canada and U.S. later couldn't make it overseas, and went back to Hong Kong quietly later. Yeah, you don't hear about these people anymore.

Miro-tard, there are 500,000 Hong Kongers living in mainland China, including 100,000 right here in Shenzhen. Yes, mainland China is where Hong Kong's capital and talent went to.
