CLUELESS CARR: Jimmy Says He’s Not Sure If China Ban On Canadian Meat Is Linked To Huawei CFO

Really bro?

Jim Carr is either clueless or just playing dumb.

Either way, it’s not looking good for Canada as our leadership continues to show pathetic weakness.

International trade diversification minister Carr is claiming that he doesn’t know whether there’s a link between Communist China’s ban on Canadian meat, and the issue of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou:

“There is no way of knowing for sure,” said Carr in an interview with BNN Bloomberg.

“Somebody is falsifying Canadian export certificates.” said Carr. “Someone think that there’s an advantage in using the Canada brand to get into the Chinese market. It’s a problem and we’re going to get to the bottom of it. We’re working with provincial counterparts, with the industry officials involved, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the Chinese themselves so that we can come up with some idea of where this product comes from and how to determine who’s falsifying these export certificates to get to the bottom of it.”

While Carr pretends not to know who that “someone” could be, others actually have some common sense. Speaking with BNN Bloomberg, Eric Miller, the President of Rideau Potomac Strategy Group pointed out the obvious:

“Going into the [Group of 20 meetings], China is looking at ramping up the pressure on Canada over the Meng Wanzhou case. And certainly, they were not blind to the discussions between Prime Minister Trudeau and President Trump last week in Washington. So, they are putting this out as a marker to Canada, saying: ‘We are very happy to hurt you and hurt your exports to China if you don’t do what we want.’”

Jimmy Carr seems to be the only person not aware of what’s happening.

Actually, I take that back.

Jimmy Carr and the entire Liberal government are flailing about, as their ‘be nice,’ strategy endlessly fails with China. Pretending not to know that China is obviously deliberately blocking the exports for political reasons is absurd, especially since China issued a statement demanding Meng Wanzhou’s extradition be stopped – right after they announced the ban on Canadian meat.

As I said on Twitter, the refusal to retaliate means Canada will keep getting humiliated:

“How many times do I have to say it? Canada must retaliate against China (Huawei ban, foreign homebuyers ban, state-owned company investment restrictions), and reduce our dependence on trade with the Communist State. Otherwise, we will just keep getting treated like garbage.”

Jim Carr is not playing dumb. He IS dumb. He proved it time and again as energy minister when he was totally clueless about what’s happening. If this is the best the liberals can muster as ANY kind if minister, it speaks to the incompetence of the rest of the liberal party. Sad, sad, sad.

We are being treated like garbage, because our country with these “treasonous radical leaders” and their foreign supporters and illegal friends are acting like criminal garbage and all should be in prison.

Spencer,
You should know better than following the media narrative.
Canadians are broke, Americans are broke and the stores are saturated with goods.
Smart business says to cut your loses…
And that is currently what China is doing.
Our politicians were stupid enough to crush our manufacturing for other countries manufactured goods on the promise of advanced better jobs that never appeared while importing cheap labour.

After reading your (as usual) informative article on Jum Carr and China, it struck me what the problem is. He lost the key to his ‘clues closet’ without which he is helpless — typical Liberal.

This governments ineptness is simply staggering.
The non-answeres are particularly telling.
