RCMP restrain Chinese reporter after tussle at Harper event

Source: CBC News

A Chinese reporter was hauled away by Prime Minister Stephen Harperís RCMP security detail Friday after he grabbed a microphone and tried to ask Harper a question during a news conference at a mine in northern Quebec.

The reporter had just been involved in a brief physical altercation with Harperís press secretary, Julie Vaux, as he waited in line to ask his question.

Li Xue Jiang, Canadian bureau chief for the Chinese People's Daily, is one of 10 reporters travelling with Harper on his tour of the North this week.

Li refused to apologize Friday and said the prime ministerís office should apologize to him: "Why should I apologize? They should apologize to me for being unfair and depriving me of my right to ask a question."
