Communist China Threatens Canada Again

Warns of ‘consequences.’

Communist China is once again threatening Canada.

In a statement, a spokesman for China’s foreign minister – Geng Shuang – warned of ‘consequences’ if we continue helping the United States:

“We hope that the Canadian side can have a clear understanding of the consequences of endangering itself for the gains of the U.S. and take immediate actions to correct its mistakes so as to spare itself the suffering from growing damage.” 

As noted by the AP, “Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang’s comments Friday came after U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called for the release of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor. Both were arrested on Dec. 10 after Canada detained a Huawei executive wanted by the United States on fraud charges.”

The report notes that, “While China has denied they were taken in retaliation, it has repeatedly implied that there is a strong connection between the cases. Kovrig, a former diplomat and Asia expert at the International Crisis Group, and Spavor, a businessman, have been accused of colluding to steal state secrets. Canada has repeatedly urged their immediate release, calling their detention “arbitrary.” Neither has been permitted access to lawyers or family members.”

China’s threats come as they continue imposing tariffs on Canadian Canola under a clearly-false pretext, and as the trade dispute between the Communist State and the United States continues.

China also recently threatened to cut off supplies of rare-earth metals to the United States – which, as I’ve noted, presents a great opportunity for Canada (if we had leaders capable of seizing it).

Unfortunately, the Trudeau government has demonstrated a total lack of strategic sense, and has adopted an attitude of weakness and submission when it comes to dealing with Communist China.

Countries run by ruthless regimes like China respond only to strength. It’s the only thing they respect. So, when they bully a country, and that country responds by repeatedly ‘begging’ for meetings, refuses to retaliate, and continues to act in a craven and cowering manner, that only emboldens the ruthless regime, which then brings on more escalation.

We’ve seen that happen over and over again, as China escalates, Trudeau & Freeland respond with weakness, and China escalates again.

And while Trudeau has said that we shouldn’t ‘accept’ the aggression of China, he hasn’t put anything behind those words.

Further, Trudeau chose to lecture Mike Pence about abortion policy in the United States, at the same time as he asked Pence for help on detained Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, and asked the US to help us with China’s blocking of our canola exports.

As I noted on Twitter, Trudeau’s comments to Pence were yet another example of his weakness, as he has never said anything that ‘strong’ to a leader of China:

“Funny how Trudeau is willing to criticize Mike Pence to his face about domestic policy in our close US ally, but doesn’t have the balls to call out Communist China for imprisoning a million Muslim people in concentration camps. Gutless and pathetic.”

Even some in Canada’s business community are realizing the threat posed by China – including the Rogers Vice-Chairman saying Huawei should be banned from Canada’s 5G networks:

“Speaking to BNN Bloomberg, Philip Lind says Huawei is too big a risk:

“The idea of Huawei controlling, or potentially controlling our communication system in Canada is crazy. I don’t think they should be allowed to.”

Lind is 100% correct, and deserves praise for having the courage to say what more Canadian business leader should be saying.”

If China escalates against us, we must escalate against them. The threat and the danger cannot be ignored.

Trudeau’s gutless and pathetic approach will only invite more assaults on our nation from China, and we can unfortunately expect things to keep getting worse.

“And while Trudeau has said that we shouldn’t ‘accept’ the aggression of China…”
We shouldn’t accept corrupt government either but yet here we are.

People should google a look at the giant statue in China called “the God of war”. Interesting that they chose a God of war for a topic.

The West still trying to stir up drama.
I dumped my relatives for the same reason for trying to draw me into stupid arguments that did not concern me.
Trying to have them buy your products while chastising them is really a dumb move.

Be prepared to have both the US and China dislike our country.
President Trump still holds a grudge that our ancestors burnt down the Whitehouse.

Start by banning Huawei phones and other devices.

Canada has sources of rare earths all across the country, but of course with Bill C-69, none will ever be mined. Trudeau wants all resources and petroleum products to remain in the ground. Canada could be a world leader in so many areas. In spite of what Trudeau might think, dancing and rewarding terrorists aren’t something we would like to be recognized for.

“Trudeau’s gutless and pathetic approach will only invite more assaults on our nation from China, and we can unfortunately expect things to keep getting worse”.

Absolutely,Spencer. I think the whole world recognized what a weak,inexperienced leader Canada elected in 2015. While his phony-baloney “sunny ways” may have played well at home, among the world’s leading Nations,especially Russia,China,India, Brazil and the USA, Trudeau was perceived exactly as he should have been; as a schoolboy in WAY over his head.
Let’s hope he doesn’t do too much more damage to us before we boot him out in October.

Great and inspired leadership requires, intelligence, shrewdness, discernment, a willingness to fight your enemies, not appease them and the wisdom to use these qualities with discretion at the right time. Sadly though, Canada and Canadians are left wanting, for all we have to offer in the fight against an aggressive China is a manchild that sees his own fake virtuousness and is totally lacking in the required skills upon which to defend aggressively Canada and and Canadians. At the very least Trudeau should follow Trump’s lead and slap China with massive and punitive tariffs, yet, Trudeau will still follow the… Read more »
