Wen Zhao is a Chinese immigrant to Canada. You may call him can exile. With his anti-CCP videos with millions of fans (mostly from overseas Chinese), it’s certain that the Chinese government has taken notice. He has no chance of visiting China even as a tourist. Interestingly, unlike some other dissidents, Wen Zhao is optimistic that the PRC will one day democratise.
Why did he leave China? A brilliant man, Wen Zhao became deeply disappointed with a system that was blatantly manipulated and unable to answer even simple questions. He is one of those who can’t do 闷声发大财。
