Felicia Sonmez, the China correspondent for Agence France-Presse, took to Twitter yesterday to slam the Vancouver Sun for running this piece by columnist Chuck Chiang, titled “Tibetan Buddhism strong in face of modernization and China’s dominant Han culture”.

In fact, Chiang wrote two pieces about his recent trip to Tibet- the piece cited by Sonmez, which appeared as a column by Chiang in The Sun’s business section, and this column, which ran in the travel section under the hed “Tourism, government spending boost Tibet’s living standard”.
