Steven Chase and Robert Fife, writing in the Globe and Mail, tell us that “Liberal MP Wayne Easter …[Malpeque, PEI] … who also served as solicitor-general under Jean Chrétien … and was, therefore, the minister] … in charge of Canada’s security agencies … [which means he might actually recognize threats to national security] ... told The Globe and Mail Tuesday that Canada needs to recognize the serious threat China poses to western democracies. He also criticized the fact that universities are still conducting research projects with Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd.”
Mr Easter is absolutely correct. I’m a little disappointed that he is the only Liberal MP to call out Justin Trudeau over what I said, a few days ago, is a government that appears to have taken leave of its senses and to have put the interests of Communist China ahead of those of Canada. I see, also in the Globe and Mail, that Irwin Cotler, a former Liberal justice minister and a relentless voice for human rights, has joined Mr Easter. Perhaps other Liberals are still just waiting for someone else to lead … perhaps … I hope. Or, perhaps, most of the MPs who decided to run, again, as part of Team Trudeau, in 2019, have just lost all sense of their own Canadian values and now just blindly support Canada’s own “dear leader” rather than listening to respected, serious voices in their own party.
Meanwhile, speculation mounts that Prime Minister Trudeau will take Canada into a late Spring election while the pandemic still rages but, he hopes, his vaccination supply programme will, finally, get rolling … months after everyone else is nearly done. He thinks he can win at least another minority and nothing else, not the health and safety of Canadians, not the security of Canada, and certainly not genocide in a far away land involving a people who don’t vote here, matters to him.
My only question is: how much more evidence do Canadians need to understand that Justin Trudeau is a sub-standard human being who is putting the people and the country he was elected to lead at risk? How much more proof do Canadian voters need to convince them that he belongs on the political trash heap?
