Justin Trudeau fails on his approach to China
Despite the fact that two Canadians are still being illegally detained in China, and despite the government in Beijing’s decision to block Canadian canola imports, and despite the Chinese government’s attempts to shut down democracy protests in Hong Kong, Trudeau’s new Minister of Foreign Affairs couldn’t be clearer on where he stands:
“Canada and I would say China, stands out as a beacon of stability, predictability, a rule-based system, a very inclusive society.”
– Francois-Philippe Champagne, Justin Trudeau’s Minister of Foreign Affairs (CGTN, May 9th, 2017)
This is more of the same from the Liberals.
Our Conservative motion calling for a special committee to review all aspects of the Canada-China relationship passed despite the Trudeau government voting against it.
