The weakness of Canada’s approach to China is leading to our nation being treated as a total joke.
As I’ve said many times before, countries like Communist China only respect, and only respond to strength.
Yet, time and time again, the Trudeau Liberals have shown pathetic weakness.
The result of that is Canadians being illegally detained, and an ‘undeclared’ trade war by China against our nation.
And now, China isn’t even hiding their contempt for Canada’s leadership.
According to a Globe & Mail report, China is flat out ignoring requests for communication from Canada:
“Canadian leaders have been unable to communicate with Chinese decision-makers in the midst of the worst diplomatic crisis between the two countries in decades, with Beijing not responding to Ottawa’s entreaties to talk amid mounting damage to trade with the world’s second-largest economy.
Five different Canadian federal ministers have requested conversations with top-level Chinese officials since the Vancouver arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou on Dec. 1. None has been successful.
China has not refused those approaches, four sources with knowledge of the situation told The Globe and Mail. It has merely ignored them, despite multiple requests. The sources were granted anonymity by The Globe because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
“This is the challenge, because there is no communication going on,” said Guy Saint-Jacques, the former Canadian ambassador to China.”
So, this is where Justin Trudeau’s ‘foreign policy’ has brought us:
We have so little influence, and command so little respect, that China can simply pretend our leaders don’t exist, and pay zero consequences for that disrespect.
Trudeau’s foreign policy has been a total failure, has made our country weaker, and puts Canadians at risk. It also makes Andrew Scheer’s recent foreign policy speech – where he advocated for a tougher approach towards to China – all the more important. We must defeat the Liberals and bring respect and strength back to our nation.
