Taiwan Quick Take: Easier Canada entry urged

President Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) urged Canada on Monday to grant visa-free privileges to Taiwanese and to sign a judicial aid agreement with Taiwan to boost cooperation in law enforcement affairs and crime fighting. Chen made the appeal while meeting with a Canadian parliamentary delegation which is in Taipei for a goodwill visit. Noting that Japan has offered visa-free entry to Taiwanese tourists since last September, Chen said he hoped the Canadian government would follow suit, thereby attracting more Taiwanese to Canada for sightseeing trips. "As you know, Taiwanese visitors to Canada have seldom overstayed their visas," he said.
