Trudeau seems eager to criticize our allies, yet remains silent on China.
After what was described as a “sham” trial, Chinese human rights lawyer Jiang Tianyong has been sentenced to 2 years in prison, and will be “deprived of political rights” for another 3 years.
As noted by the AFP, Tianyong “had taken on many high-profile cases including those of Falun Gong practitioners, Tibetan protesters and victims of the 2008 contaminated milk powder scandal, before being disbarred in 2009.”
Tianyong’s “crimes” were “inciting subversion of state power,” in addition to “defaming the government.”
Keep in mind, in China’s “basic dictatorship,” even criticizing the government is a crime.
Silence from Trudeau government
While Trudeau and his politically-correct ministers are eager to criticize the U.S., Australia, and our other democratic allies, they seem unwilling to say anything about China.
Disturbingly, Trudeau has expressed support for what he called China’s “basic dictatorship,” and perhaps wishes he had the same power as China does to silence dissent and those who oppose the actions of the government.
The hypocritical silence from Trudeau, and his willingness to repeatedly bow down to China shows that Canada’s national sovereignty is at serious risk under this government.
