The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

In this months Real Estate newsletter, I discuss China's aggressive push for land ownership in other countries. You can view the article here.

What are your opinions the subject? Do we want Chinese investment in our economy? Or could there be negative consequences that could occur?
