More questionable activity surrounding a member of the Trudeau government and issues surrounding Communist China.
Geng Tan, a Liberal MP representing Don Valley North, spoke on behalf of Xiao Hua Gong (AKA Edward Gong) to the Chinese government.
According to the Globe & Mail, “Chinese-Canadian businessman Xiao Hua Gong, also known as Edward Gong, was arrested in Toronto last week and the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) has charged him with fraud over $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime, laundering proceeds of crime and uttering a forged document. None of the allegations have been proven in court.”
The report goes on to note that Tan “acted as an intermediary for Mr. Gong, who at the time was under criminal investigation by the RCMP, Ontario Securities Commission [OSC] and China’s Ministry of Public Security in connection with a $466-million pyramid scheme.”
Tan’s office admitted that he contacted Chinese authorities regarding the Gong case.
Notably, Gong has given “$7,000 to the Liberal Party over the past few years, and was at a Liberal fundraiser involving Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Chinese-Canadian business people in Toronto in May, 2016.”
Interestingly, while advocating for constituents is a common practice of MPs, Gong does not live in Tan’s riding, and is not a constituent of his.
The report has even more disturbing details:
“Since the 2015 election, Mr. Tan has travelled frequently to China, where he has met Communist Party officials whose goal is to win overseas support for the authoritarian government’s political agenda.”
What is up with this government and connections to China’s communist state?
It should be quite simple for the Trudeau government to avoid repeated instances of shady connections to the Communist Chinese state.
Yet, it keeps happening.
Most concerning of all is that Western countries are being warned of China’s escalating efforts to gain influence and control over other nations, yet Trudeau and his MPs are not only refusing to take steps to protect Canada, they seem to be willfully falling into the trap.
It raises serious questions about who the government and MPs actually serve, and it must be put to an end, because if it continues, our country will be increasingly undermined from within.
