Scheer understands basic human nature: Provocation must be met with strength.
In a good move that contrasts heavily with Justin Trudeau’s pervasive weakness, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is calling for the federal government to toughen inspections of Chinese imports, and possibly hit the Communist state with tariffs.
Scheer says Canada must toughen our approach, by strengthening inspections of Chinese imports, and considering possible retaliatory tariffs on certain products from China in response to their provocations against us.
Scheer noted that Canada’s $75 billion in imports from China give us leverage:
“In short, we have leverage in this dispute, but only if we choose to wield it.”
This is a good move by Scheer, and shows that – unlike Trudeau – he understands basic human nature.
So far, China has been able to get away with anything, without any tough response.
Scheer’s approach would at least send the important message to China and other countries that anyone who disrespects Canada will face consequences, and consequences are the only thing that can dissuade bullies and ruthless regimes.
