This photo shows future Prime Minister Mackenzie King meeting with Chinese officials in Beijing’s Forbidden City in 1909. King was then Minister of Labour in the government of Wilfrid Laurier. China’s Qing dynasty would be overthrown in a revolution in 1911. In Canada, the Liberals were defeated by the Conservatives in that same year.
