Former PM Jean Chretien in hospital in Hong Kong

Former prime minister Jean Chretien was hospitalized in Hong Kong Monday because of a kidney stone. A source close to the 85-year-old former Liberal leader says Chretien is going to be fine. Chretien was scheduled to speak at the U.S-China Trade and Economic Relations Forum in Hong Kong. Attendees were told that Chretien arrived for the conference feeling unwell and was hospitalized as a precaution. Chretien served as Canada's prime minister from 1993 to 2003. Expanding trade with China was a theme in Chretien's time in office. He's continued working on business links between China and North America since he went back to private life.
