Report Says China’s Communist Party Paid For Conservative MP’s Free Trip

The Conservatives must reject all such trips in the future and reject any attempts by China to influence our political process. They can’t allow themselves to go down the same path as Justin Trudeau letting China buy off our country.

A report in the Globe & Mail reveals that Conservative MP Bob Saroya took a free eight-day trip to China, a trip that was “in part funded by the foreign affairs arm of the ruling Chinese Communist Party.”

A key excerpt of the report details who Saroya met with:

“Mr. Saroya’s trip included stops in Beijing, where he met top Chinese communist officials including Guo Yezhou, the vice-minister of foreign affairs for the International Department of the Communist Party’s Central Committee. Mr. Guo last October told the party’s 19th Congress how the party had been busy “making friends far and wide” around the world to support China’s position on matters including territorial claims in the South China Sea.”

The trip comes as China is seeking to stop the Conservatives from opposing a ‘free trade’ deal between Canada and China – something Trudeau has been pushing for and which Scheer says the Conservatives reject.

While Saroya claims “there was nothing special discussed” on his Communist-paid for trip, the fact that China is trying to get MPs to go on such trips, and the fact that some MPs are accepting the trips, is very concerning.

I have heavily criticized the Trudeau Liberals for their repeated willingness to bow down to China, and while the Conservatives have taken a tougher approach, they need to be criticized in this case.

Saroya never should have accepted the trip, and the Conservatives need to provide answers to Canadians on what additional lobbying attempts are being made by Communist China.

Scheer has shown political courage by going against the corporate and media elites by opposing a Canada-China ‘free’ trade agreement that would be devastating to working class and middle class Canadians. If he lets his party be co-opted by China and decides to support the ‘free trade’ scam, it would be a terrible moment for Canada. He needs to reassure Canadians that we won’t let that happen.

If they are taking freebies before even being elected, they are unethical and my feelings are they should be made to step down. Made an example of, so the people of our country who love Canada will not be pushed around by foreign governments again. If these people love other countries better than Canada what are they doing in our country, especially in our politics.

Well China owns a huge part of Australia’s farming land, Plus housing, Worse than what they own in Canada and let me tell you Aussies hate it, they want the governments State/Federal to stop it, actually what they should do with foreign owned land is pass a law where they can own it for 100yrs and then they must hand it back to the government to resell it.

There can be no doubt and no lingering doubt about Scheer’s duty to stay on top of this an lay down the law for the Party that such trips paid for — either in part of whole — by outside governments and will neither be tolerated nor excused. This may give him a bit of a headache, depending on his leadership qualities, but it must be done and it must be done publicly and become an integral policy of the Conservative Party — period. To do less will, without doubt, irrevocably damage the Party — and Canada cannot afford that… Read more »

Quite a few governments pay for influential people to visit them. The U.S. pays foreign, often Middle Eastern “students” to Washington for brainwashing and instruction on how to conduct a “grass-roots colour revolution”. Israel does the same thing in order to quell criticism and control multi-million, multi-billion dollar annual donations to the Israeli state from the U.S., Britain and Canada, not to mention teaching the U.S. and possibly Canadian police how to deal with peaceful protesters by beating and arresting them and if no one is looking, shoot them. Of course, no matter the reason, that doesn’t make it right.

To all three of you, NANCYW, JEFF and TOMMY HAWK – well said. Ban any contact with Trudeau’s Communist Chinese donors. The Liberals screw themselves up yet again and again the Conservatives do something really stupid to make themselves look “just not ready”. Scheer had better get his sht together and start showing he a leader in control. The next election is the Conservatives to lose. They won’t win it by default. Pandering to the Communist Chinese who DO NOT have the good of Canada in their hearts is a bad thing. We common folks look at this “there was… Read more »

In 2019 when the voting SHAREHOLDERS in this country elect a Non-Partisan Canadian Government, an un-sanctioned trip by any SERVANT of the Canadian PEOPLE, paid for by any other government including our ALLIES, would trigger an immediate dismissal by and through a FREE VOTE in the HOUSE of COMMONS! A Real Majority of Canadians would reject this conduct and the MP would be fired by the PEOPLE! 2019 is our year for Canadians to vote out partisanship governments, and to elect a CANADIAN GOVERNMENT that will SERVE the Leadership and the Will of a Real Majority of Canadians in this… Read more »
