If things are ‘working,’ what would failing look like?
As of this moment, Canadian Citizens Michael Kovrig & Michael Spavor are languishing in China Communist prisons.
Kovrig and Spavor are being held in rooms where the lights are on 24 hours a day, subjected to a level of discomfort that is certainly becoming like torture after such a long time.
They were kidnapped on obviously-false charges of ‘spying,’ and it’s no coincidence that they were kidnapped not long after Canada detained Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou (of course, while Kovrig & Spavor are imprisoned and treated horribly, Wanzhou is free to travel between her multiple mansions in Vancouver).
There is no sign that Kovrig & Spavor are going to be released anytime soon, (though I hope to be wrong about that), and it is obvious that China doesn’t take the Trudeau government seriously, having just called our country “naive” and saying our allies can’t help us.
So, what does Trudeau think about this?
He thinks his approach is “working.”
“Our approach of highlighting around the world the concerns that people have with the arbitrary detention of two Canadians by China is working,” said @JustinTrudeau. Yesterday, China warned Canada not to be ‘naive’ in thinking allies can help fix dispute”

If that’s “working,” then what the hell would failing look like?
Trudeau appears to be slipping further and further into delusion, and somehow believes his absolute and unmitigated foreign policy failure is somehow a success.
Apparently Canada has "galvanized the Western world" against Beijing's kidnapping of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor. I must have missed that. https://t.co/rFMCFEiANK

Meanwhile, Kovrig & Spavor remain in prison, China repeatedly insults our country, we are viewed as a joke around the globe, and the total weakness of our government makes the world a far more dangerous place for the Canadian People.
