While his incompetence is slowing down the start of disastrous “free trade” talks, the elites won’t give up on their effort to fully betray Canadians.
Justin Trudeau has been having a tough trip to China, as his virtue-signalling has not been a big hit with the locals, and his efforts to suck up to China were not reciprocated as fervently as he expected.
However, while his incompetence and naivety has slowed down the start of trade talks, they aren’t going to stop them forever.
Even if his trip ends without a trade deal (which would actually be very good for Canadians), the elites won’t stop. Sooner or later, they are going to formally begin the effort to push a dangerous “free trade” deal with China.
And the key tactic they plan to use to force the deal is deception:
We can see this in Trudeau’s rhetoric while speaking to the elites in China at the Fortune Global Forum – described as “the Davos of Asia.”
According to a report by Chris Hall, here’s part of what Trudeau said:
“By keeping our borders open, and pursuing progressive trade deals that put people first and reflect our values, we give our businesses access to more customers, and we give our customers greater access to the goods they want. This is the Canadian way. We are, and have long been, a trading nation.”
Trudeau ignores the fact that Canada has a long history of protectionism – which helped us build national industries and protected jobs & preserved Canadian ownership.
So, Trudeau is purposely trying to re-frame Canadian history.
Trudeau also flat out lied about China being “open” when he said this:
“When it comes to trade and international co-operation, China and Canada share the belief that more openness and more collaboration is the right way forward. Closing our doors will only hurt our businesses, and our citizens.”
Of course, as we know, China is a massively protectionist country, and demands the right to buy up other countries businesses and land while tightly restricting foreign investment within their own borders.
This shows that Trudeau (or his advisors), know that he can’t sell “free trade” with China based on the truth.
So he and the government are simply making up a false version of Canada and China, saying they are similar, and trying to ram it through without giving the Canadian people a say.
It’s a strategy of deceit and deception, and it shows once again that the government doesn’t truly work for us.
