Miss World Canada Anastasia Lin says - despite threats - she'll keep pushing for human rights in China
Anastasia Lin says her strong stance on human rights in China is part of the reason she won the Miss World Canada competition.
The Chinese-Canadian student and activist has been a vocal critic of China for its persecution of religious minorities. But now, Lin has received word that her father -- who still lives in China -- was visited by Chinese security officers.
She says it was a thinly veiled threat to try to silence her. She says it won't work.
Lin tells As It Happens co-host Carol Off, "I think the best way to protect my father at this point is to continue speaking out about it; to raise awareness about the issue and hopefully they will back away."
