Donald Campbell, former Deputy Minister for International Trade and currently the senior strategy advisor for Davis LLP, draws attention to public concern over growing foreign ownership of Canada's resources in an interview with writer Sandra Rubin; the article "Shifting Eastward" appears in a Lexpert special law insert included in the June 2012 issue of the Globe and Mail's Report on Business magazine.
While the Canadian government has been actively courting foreign investment from Asia – particularly China – in the natural resources sector, Campbell cautions that politicians must not overlook "a small but growing number of Canadians worried about selling too many of the country's resources to Asian Superpowers."
