Speakers at the event criticized the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong and praised the Chinese government despite the regime’s brutal crackdown of protestors.

The Liberal Party has since denied ever authorizing the move, claiming that the forms are outdated and would be invalid today.

However, several critics have pointed out the Liberal Party’s cozy relationship with the pro-China side of the issue.

“You can see the close connection between the pro-Beijing camp and the  Liberal party,” said Canada-Hong Kong Link’s Gloria Fung.
