TRUDEAU DIPLOMACY: Australia Seeks To Block Canada’s Admission To Security Forum

While Trudeau bows down to communist China, he’s distancing our country from democratic allies like Australia.

In the wake of Trudeau skipping (“or making a scheduling mistake”) a key meeting during Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations, Australia is seeking to block Canada from a spot on the East Asia Summit – which is seen as a top security forum in the region.

As noted in a recent report, “An Australian news report suggests that country’s leadership has already rejected Canada’s application to participate in the key forum because Australian trade officials were “gobsmacked” by Canada’s behaviour on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Forum (APEC) last week in Vietnam.”

“Trudeau diplomacy” distances Canada from our traditional allies

Being left out of the forum itself isn’t really a big deal, since most international forums are highly overrated.

The bigger issue is that the Trudeau government is once again distancing Canada from a democratic ally. We see the same with the United States, as the Trudeau government seems far more willing to criticize countries that share our values, while constantly praising and sucking up to China.

This is the deeper problem with all of this. Whether the government agrees with the Trump administration or the current Australian government on specific issues, they fail to realize that our bond with those countries will always be stronger than it could be with China.

China is an authoritarian regime, based on a different set of civilizational ideas, and while they may use Canada to achieve their interests, they are not a “friend.”

If Canada loses touch with our true friends and tries to do the bidding of China and other authoritarian states, we will be left with nothing but weakness and vulnerability in a dangerous world.

Nov 20, 2017 – In ‘courting Beijing, Australia has allowed China to gain so much sway, Prof. Hamilton warns, that “it will take a decade of determined effort to unwind the program of influence that has been executed in this country.” And, he says, other countries would do well to heed what he has experienced — including Canada, where schools at all levels are increasingly reliant on tuition dollars from Chinese students while Ottawa has approved controversial investments in sensitive sectors as it holds talks toward a free-trade agreement with Beijing.

Justin Trudeau admires dictatorships such that he would wish to run one. He certainly conducts himself in such a way. I call him the wee dic’tater’. Not only China but very close family ties with the Castros of Cuba.
Remember this …………..?

Justin as Prime Minister of Canada … who would have thought 3 years ago.

The guy clearly hasn’t a clue what he’s doing. He’s just reacting as he goes along.

Trudeau has been smacked down by the Philippines, Mexico and Australia (so far). It is becoming clearer every day that Liberals like Trudeau, Morneau, Barbie Mckenna are damaging Canada’s international reputation. More than damaging, they are making Canada a joke. Any strong leader would have fought back, but not Trudeau. His pink pussy hat suits him. Other countries are not as stupid as the Liberals think they are. China KNOWS the Liberals are stupid. They see our wide open borders, our failing financial state, the pathetic submission to two city mayors who have made Trudeau dance on pipelines, the ludicrous… Read more »
