Instead of standing strong for Canada, all McCallum is worried about is partisan advantage and bowing down to the Chicoms.
Continuing his disloyal pattern of behaviour when it comes to Canada and Communist China, Liberal John McCallum – the former Ambassador to China – is telling China to go easy on Canada so the Liberals can get re-elected.
Speaking to the South China Morning Post, McCallum said “Anything that is more negative against Canada will help the Conservatives, [who] are much less friendly to China than the Liberals. I hope and I don’t see any reason why things will get worse, it would be nice if things will get better between now and [Canada’s federal] election [in October].”
Amazingly, McCallum showed no toughness, and failed to criticize the Chicoms for their kidnapping of Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor. Instead – acting as if he worked for Beijing’s tourism bureau – he’s urging Canadian businesses to keep visiting China:
“Canada is in China for the long run … this problem will pass,” he said. “It’s important for Canadian business people not just to come to China but to come often … especially when the going is tough. “This will put our companies in a good position to do well when the going improves.”
McCallum also repeated the same comments that resulted in him having to resign as ambassador in the first place when speaking about the Meng Wanzhou case:
“It is quite possible the judge will release her.”
McCallum’s attitude of seeming to have more loyalty to Communist China than to Canada, which is really disloyalty towards Canada, is seen in much of Canada’s elite – though McCallum is the most obvious about it.
And the fact that McCallum is focused on the electoral prospects of the Liberals, rather than the freedom of imprisoned Canadians or Canada’s national interests is indicative of the screwed-up attitude at the core of the Trudeau government.
From the top of the federal government on down, we have seen the elites demonstrate pathetic weakness at every turn, allowing Canada to be disrespected and putting our nation at risk. The fact that McCallum even became an ambassador at all shows how much Canada’s governing structure is already influenced and co-opted by the propaganda of the Communist State.
